Over the past year, Florida Rambler has taken you to a great many authentic Florida destinations. Our favorites are Apopka, Everglades City, the Lower Keys, Punta Gorda and the back roads near Daytona Beach — all offering outdoor recreation opportunities of the first degree.
This isolated cluster of islands 70 miles west of Key West is accessible only by boat or seaplane. But treasures await you, especially if you camp over for a few nights. Yes, you can camp here! Snorkeling and kayaking, too!
Robbie’s Marina is a don’t-miss stop as you drive through the Florida Keys. Dozens of tarpon, some more than 6 feet long, gather at the dock and lunge for fish from visitors. The restaurant there, the Hungry Tarpon, is highly recommended , too.
