Things To do in Islamorada with kids
While layout by the pool endlessly does my soul good, after five minutes the kids might be ready for more action. So, here are 6 Things To do in Islamorada with kids in Islamorada:
- Feed tarpon fish:
- At 77522 Overseas Hwy, you might just miss this secret hideaway place under a bridge! Shops, kayak rentals, and world famous tarpon feeding will take you to a dock you will not soon forget!
- There are thousands of places to kayak in The Keys. You can just launch right off Overseas highway. Nevertheless, if you can, paddle over to Indian Key from Robbie’s. Breathtaking views!
- Visit friendly animals:
- The Theater of the Sea is a great place to come up close and personal with Florida animal residents like dolphins and gators. Enjoy the different fish and turtles too. Shows and zoo-like exhibits make your visit a fun short one that will allow you to make friends with sharks. Yes, you can pet them in the water!
- Say hi to Betsy the Lobster:
- The Rain Barrel artist village is home to this giant called Besty the Lobster. She is spiny, gigantic and a great photo opportunity before you walk in to explore local artistry.
- Tour History of Diving Museum:
- Curious about man trying to conquer the water underworld? Then you should definitively stop at this unique museum!
- Enjoy the best key lime pie ever:
- You will not be able to resist a piece of key lime pie while in The Keys. Do visit the Blong Giraffe Key Lime Pie factory or Green Turtle Inn for a great sweet and tart research expedition.
How to Get to Islamorada
With seating for up to eight, the best way for our tribe is to cruise in a Toyota Highlander on Krome Avenue all the way way South. Just enjoy the open road as you go straight down until Krome until it ends and becomes US-1. Continue Southbound over the blue bridge, past Key Largo and Tavernier. It is not only the smooth and quiet Highlander ride that makes it so enjoyable. It is also the peace of mind thanks to all the Toyota safety features onboard. That includes Star Safety System™ — includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist ( and Smart Stop Technology®.
I love the confidence I get thanks to the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P)32 — Pre-Collision System29 with Pedestrian Detection, lane departure alert, and blind spot monitor. Of course, the generous size rear camera screen is my best friend. What my passengers love is having 5 USB outlets to power up every electronic! We all were just oh and ah over the spacious cargo area.
Have you been to Islamorada? Love Key Lime Pie as much as I do?
