Key West – Everglades – Southern Florida

May 2010 – With the Saturn packed as full as possible, we drove down the “Overseas Highway” US 1 to the southernmost point in the US, in Key West FL. It took us about 4 hours (and 42 bridges) south of Miami. The Gulf of Mexico on the right and Atlantic Ocean on the left of us. We enjoyed the amazing views of the ocean and the gulf, white sand beaches, mangroves, and tropical vegetation as we hopped across the chain of isles and reefs (keys). We even saw rare Key deer.

We had an amazing time in southern Florida and really enjoyed the warm water. Snorkeling, sailing, jet skiing, kayaking, tubing, and even para-sailing!

While in southern Florida we spent an entire day in the Everglades National Park. But we did not see a single alligator or croc anywhere! It was REAL hot and humid, I’m sure they were trying to keep cool somewhere out of sight.


  1. I hardly ever leave a response, but i did some searching “Camping Key West – Southern Florida” and wound up here.
    And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s all right. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of these campgrounds look as if they are run by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? Thx
