Back in 1993 was the first time when I came to the Florida Keys and I immediately knew I need to come back a.s.a.p. Looking back, I am very thankful for any local information I got. Now that I am a Key West local myself, I decided to pass on a couple "secrets" to you... Flying in, I suggest to fly to Miami and get a rental car to start your way down to Key West. Take your time since there are beautiful places left and right of the US1 Overseas Highway. If you want to fly straight to Key West I suggest to hop on Delta Airlines coming in from Atlanta.

It's also regarded as the best beach for swimming, since its waters spread wider and deeper than other beaches.

Camping in this lush environment and tarpon fishing under the Bahia Honda Bridge contribute to making this park a popular destination year round.
