The good thing about living in Florida is that there are tons of interesting short trips you can take, to diverse locales. I had always had a fascination for the Florida keys, so I had to visit Key Largo, having visited Key West a few years ago.
If you are a beach person only, don't come, you will be disappointed. The beaches in the keys are not that great, I guess they have been eroded away and destroyed by development. If you like the sea and nature, by all means, this is a nice place.
We stayed at a Ramada almost at the end of Key Largo. We booked the place for a couple nights on Hotels.com at $140.00. The rate was not bad. We were slightly shocked when we booked an extra night for $109.00, though. So much for the cheapest guarantee made by the website! The hotel itself was not a five star stretch by any margin, but the rooms were nice, with all amenities, and very clean. The swimming pool was small, but nice, plus they have a jacuzzi. I guess we will leave that for winter, though...
There are plenty of activities in the nearby keys, such as Islamorada. Tons of snorkeling and diving offerings. Make sure you book the best for your level of sea comfort.
There is a nice wild bird sanctuary nearby Islamorada, where pelicans walk beside you as if you are not there. Watch out, they might push you. If you are lucky you might get to feed them.
The Theater of the Sea is a must to visit. Beautiful surroundings, good shows and nice animals. However, plan on arriving before 3 PM, as they will not sell you a ticket after that time. It would be nice if their ads said so. Also, the swimming with dolphin adventure has to be better planned. Just don't think you are going to arrive there and one of 125 dolphins will be ready for you. Places are limited and will cost you $168.00 a pop. Don~t go there if you are allergic to cats!!!!
Make sure you visit Ballyhoos restaurant. The service is well meaning, but quite pitiftul and amateurish, the surroundings indifferent, but the fish is out of this world.
