Say hello to some Dolphin Fish

One of the better things to do in the Middle Keys, as it is very well received by families with children. Kids love the Dolphin Research Center because of the dolphin shows, close interactivity with marine life, and cool educational tours. Do note that the dolphin swim programs do require call ahead reservations. Find it about seven minutes northeast of Marathon Island.

One of the really neat things to see is the memorial after the original Flipper, the movie star! It was the dolphin that was faster than lightning. They have about 20 Dolphins here now that they use to do all sorts of tricks and visit with the kids or adults. It was all Started by Milton Santini.

The best place in the Middle Florida Keys for Families with Children. You can take the entire family to meet sea lions and dolphins here. Way cool. We love Splashable Adventures near Key Colony Beach.

Love the Animals

Does not everyone love the animals. Dolphins are super and we have a cat. You can get hotels that are pet freindly, and the same goes for the Shipyard Condos. I realize you might need a month, but is Lion King kitty ok with eating less?

Do not leave cats inside by themselves for too long on vacation. Tell him I will be back soon to help him with some extra exercise chasing. I will battle him in and chase him outside. You did not know, but I am his best friend since I let him out like jimmy buffet stepping on stage, as I am the person that pulls the curtain or sliding glass door!
