Change things up with these side-trips from Key Largo: Anhinga Trail (in Everglades National Park) and Homestead (Everglades Alligator Farm, Coral Castle, & more). Spend the 1st (Mon) on the water with a fishing tour. Spend the 4th (Thu) peacefully gliding across the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area. See some other sides of Key Largo: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, admire all the interesting features of African Queen Canal Cruise, get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and have fun at Kiffney's Firearms and Indoor Range.

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

You'll set off for home on the 30th (Tue).
