Measuring only 20 miles long and, in some places, barley 150 feet wide, Islamorada is a collection of islands located in the Florida Keys. 

Legend has it the area was named by Spanish explorers who, upon seeing the purple sky at sunset and the purple bougainvillea, called it “isla morado” or purple island.

Islamorada is known as the Sport-Fishing Capital of the World. And recently the island was named one of the 17 most romantic destinations in the U.S.

Big Pine Key

Big Pine Key
If you're looking for a low-key vacation, Big Pine Key is the place for you.

In Big Pine Key, about 100 miles south of Miami and 30 miles north of Key West, you'll find relaxing, water-borne activities such as boating, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling.

Fishing, of course, means seafood, and you'll find some great seafood restaurants in Big Pine Key and on nearby keys.

Don't miss the beautiful white sand beaches at Bahia Honda State Park.

At the National Key Deer Refuge, you can see the tiny –  and very cute – wild deer known as Key deer. Actually, if you stay in Big Pine long enough you may see them just strolling around. It is amazing to spot them and I post them on Social Media whenever I am lucky enough to see them. The kids will love it, and so will you.
