We pretty much spent most of our daytime hours using our bicycles to explore different parts of the Florida Keys. One of the places you can I like a lot is Coco Plum Beach. It's a great place to park your car and go for a bicycle ride, then come back and take a swim. You would think Public Beach zones were to be had by the thousands in the Florida Keys, but that is not true. They are here, but at much less than one hundred and many are the secret kind, just like Coco Plum Beach. Make sure you get a little educational opportunities as part of your trip, for instance going to be Turtle Hospital. We got to tour the Turtle Hospital, as they offer special ninety minute presentations. Tours run daily at 10am, 1pm and 4pm each day. This is a family adventure, perfect for those with kids. Another winner for the Outdoor World near the water is Hammock Park. This is one of the state parks that is located in the middle Florida Keys, at mile marker 86. Excellent for all forms of watersports and beach style recreational opportunities. Bring your Kayaks here because they have kayak trails that are amazing. In the upper keys a great place to enjoy the waterfront is Harry Harris Park. My top pick for dumping the boat in or taking the kids out for a swim. There is a beach area, playground, and Lots of Sightseeing.
