Overview

More and more vacationers are choosing the Florida Keys, and many are choosing to visit the truly unique Everglades!

Open Road's 4th revised edition of our Best of the Florida Keys & Everglades gives readers a great mix of unique trips of varying lengths for great diving and fishing, kayaking through mangrove swamps and hundreds of square miles of sand and turtle grass flats, sightseeing along the bridges and causeways of stunning overseas highway, and visiting the fun and quirky towns along the way to anything-goes Key West. Not far from the Keys, Everglades National Park is a unique wildlife habitat and eco-system that is extremely popular with visitors to the Sunshine State. Morris explores the delights of quaint B&B's delicious seafood, the small islands and coral reefs that make up Dry Tortugas National Park, historic walks through Key West's old town-and where to go to relax, hang out on a remote beach, and watch a beautiful sunset.
