6 Reasons Why I Love The Keys

August 22, 2011

The Florida Keys may be the best place on the planet. I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of great, tropical retreats, but I just can’t get enough of the Keys. I’ve been heading to the islands for 15 years or so and each year brings some new adventure or experience. On our last trip we were fortunate enough to see some amazing sites. These are just a few of the many reasons I love the Keys.

1. Quality Time With Family & Friends

Whether your’re 20 miles off shore looking for Tuna or just sitting on the dock having a cold beer, time with family and friends is the main reason I love heading to the islands. You get to unplug here more than any place I’ve ever been.

2. Reef Life

The reef life you’ll see in the Keys is among the best in the world and certainly the best for the U.S. I’ve seen better reef eco-systems, but not in this depth and not this close to home.

3. Sharks

I love sharks. They are a lot of fun to watch in the wild and even more fun to dive with side by side. You’ll see everything from Hammer Heads to Bulls in the Keys. Fins to the left!

4. Sunsets

Some of the best sunsets I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing have been in the Keys. An inspiration for this blog was a sunset I witnessed in Key West.

5. Local Flavor

The locals in the Keys are simply amazing. The lifestyle and laid back nature of the islands lends itself to some of the most colorful ex-patriots and entrepreneurs you’ll ever meet.

6. Rays

The reef life in the Keys is amazing enough to keep you coming back time and time again. To add to the euphoria you may just get to see some of the local Spotted Eagle Rays cruising along the coral.
