Spending a few days in the Florida Keys (and maybe a day in Miami?) with a college friend... I've never been to South Florida. What should we do/see or stay clear from?
I'm heading down to Key Largo in a couple weeks for the wedding of two very good friends. So I'll be there for Thursday and Friday (wedding on Friday) but then my friend comes in early Saturday afternoon and we're basically on our own until Wednesday.
I know I want to go to Key West and see Hemmingway's house (and bazillion cats, apparently) but what is there to do throughout the keys and is it worth spending a day/night in Miami? I know we'll get down to some snorkeling, though I don't know where yet. Are there any keys between Largo and West that have things on them?
I'd planned on renting a car, so we should be pretty mobile the entire time. If anyone has any itinerary ideas, or like I said must do's and dont's, I'd be forever in your debt. =) And as always, thank you all in advance!
(I did find this AskMe
, but it seems to be pretty old... and same thing with this old thread
. I'll poke around them, but I'd like to try and be current as I can)
