Spend the 5th (Tue) exploring nature at Dry Tortugas National Park.

Big Pine Key is a census-designated place and unincorporated community in Monroe County, Florida, United States, on an island of the same name in the Florida Keys. Start off your visit on the 10th (Sun): paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, immerse yourself in nature at Bahia Honda State Park, and then stop by Out of the Blue Gallery. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at Blue Hole, then identify plant and animal life at National Key Deer Refuge, and then take in the exciting artwork at Artists in Paradise Gallery.

A tiny city just 16 km (10 mi) long, Marathon is spread across several islands in the middle of the Florida Keys.
Marathon is known for wildlife, beaches, adventure, nature, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: look for all kinds of wild species at The Turtle Hospital, get outside with Gemini Dream Charters, cast your line with a fishing tour, and stroll through Sombrero Beach.

Plan my Marathon trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Marathon is just a stone's throw from Big Pine Key. In November, daily temperatures in Marathon can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can drive to Islamorada.
