Vacations To Florida Keys
In the heart of the Florida Keys lies Marathon, a ten mile long community that is mostly family oriented and it’s roots reflect the old fishing lifestyle that you may call old keys. If you want a fabulous vacation, a trip to the center of the chain of keys may be what you are looking for.
Marathon maintains a simple lifestyle and shows itself by their annual seafood festivals which is something you don’t want to miss. This is the third largest event in the keys. I’m getting hungry for seafood just watching the video below:
Vacations to the Florida Keys can be a dream come true with a little bit of planning. The first and foremost thing you want to do is decide how you want to get there. Fly, drive or by boat are options that you will want to research. Some people will fly to Miami, get a rental and then enjoy the ultimate trip down the Overseas Highway. From mile marker 120 to mm 0 you will find islands that are rich in culture, arts and full of the outdoors.

Have you ever been on a houseboat? If you are going to the Florida Keys, you may want to take a look at an alternative kind of lodging, the houseboat rental. Living on the water for a few days or a week sounds delightful doesn’t it? You don’t have to lug your boat down to the Keys, just rent from a legitimate company and enjoy a relaxing time on the water.
I found a few places where you can rent houseboats on the water. One company, Rentmyisland.com I’ve talked about before in earlier blogs. This rental company, owned by Bob & Jeanne, has 2 unique house boating experiences to choose from. In Charlies cove off of Marathon, you can rent a two bedroom houseboat and it even includes a private island! Yes, you heard that right, you get an island to go with your houseboat! Imagine living off the boat and hanging out on a private island with no worries. They will even give you a power boat to get back and forth! It stays permantly docked at Charlie’s island, and you can camp, picnic,kayak and snorkel during your time there in this private cove surrounded by the Gulf waters. Enjoy a rustic adventure in a beautiful place. Kick back and relax while on this vacation, especially if you enjoy private moments!
Eighteen miles south of Key Largo is another houseboat rental company, Houseboat Vacations of the Florida Keys. These boats can go out in the water and can sleep up to 10 people. Completely furnished, a bathroom with hot and cold water and a gas barbecue on the deck along with a rooftop sundeck makes it a vacation to remember while you are in the Florida Keys! Even before you head out, a marine instructor will show you simple navigation to teach you how to start, stop and anchor the houseboat. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Continue reading
