As a boy growing up in Miami, the author fell in love with the beauty of the Keys and the Everglades wilderness. Color photos and maps throughout. The Florida Keys attract visitors from all over the world. They are renowned for their pristine waters, great snorkeling and diving, superb sportfishing and the laid-back ambiance. Previous editions of this guide have always been top sellers. Scuba diving, sailing, fishing, windsurfing, nature hikes, airboat rides, historic sites, music festivals, art galleries, shopping--the author details them all. Where to get the best key lime pie, the best seafood, homemade jams and other treats--it's all here. Accommodations range from luxury resorts to small family B&Bs and campgrounds. Like other Travel Adventure Guides, this shows you how to experience the destination more intensely and directly than most travelers know how to do--getting out of the taxi or the rental car and seeing the place close-up, through walks, bike rides, horseback excursions, culinary adventures, interacting with the people.
