Simple and beutiful... The Overseas Highway, the southernmost portion of US 1, offers miles and miles of colorful vistas as sea meets sky in a stunning mix of blues and greens and turquoise. This scenic highway is a must see, the only All-American Highway in the state of Florida, and one of only 30 other designated highways in the United States. It's a four hour drive from Miami to Key West, but allow time for stopping along the way. There are just too many scenic moments to miss. A visit to the Keys to celebrate my birthday was perfect. Great food and tons of things to do here guys. Take a boat trip and go snorkeling. See colorful fish, sting rays, sharks and the coral reef. Tip: Take the afternoon trip and end your day with a sunset cruise.
#goldenhour #bestof5 #beach Islamorada sunrise A deck chair provides an interesting frame for an Islamorada sunset. Beautiful In the same areas as Key Dives is located, you can also feed the Wild Tarpon for 5 US. Such a scary thing to do. They looked so big, so we decided that we were happy with just looking at them. If you are brave you should definitely feed them.

From the Road Trip in the Keys
#wildtarpon #roadtrip #florida #keywest There is no better place, anywhere, to watch a sunset than at Lorelei's. Pelican posing for the camera in Islamorada, Florida, in the Florida Keys. The drive down Highway 1 over the keys will reveal blues you've never seen before. Best sunset in the keys... Grab the coconut dolphin filet, some fried alligator tail... A nice cocktail and enjoy!

#FoodieFinds Rum runners on the beach Beautiful Sunset On the drive to Key West I happened upon this place for breakfast. What a nice surprise - upscale menu, service and ambience. My favorite spot in the Florida Keys This place is the DisneyWorld of fishing. Any kind of fishing, every kind of gear, including margaritaville combo juicer and blender. Endless. live tank inside with tarpon, Snook, redfish, and bonefish. Killer bar inside as well. Definitely stop by. Will we ever get tired of #sunset in the #Florida Keys? No. Never!
This one was taken from Lorelei's Restaurant and Tiki Bar on Islamorada. Great recommendation from a friend! The sunset, the band, the drinks, the food -- all fab!

Come to mile marker 81.5 to pay respects at lovely memorial to the memory of civilians and war veterans whose lives were lost while building the road and the train that came to rescue them, in the Category 5 hurricane of September 2, 1935. #Green #EndlessSummer #InStone Weird jelly fish found at isla morada Summer fun with the family in July 2016.
