The Florida Keys offer an abundance of day trips, which will depend on where you are staying. From most of the Keys, Bahia Honda State Park at Mile Marker 37 is a great choice. Snorkel at the Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, rent a kayak, or just lounge on the pristine beach.

John Pennekamp park in Key Largo, established to protect a portion of the continental USA’s only living coral reef,  makes an excellent day trip from Miami or Key West. It is world’s first undersea park and boasts a coral reef, snorkeling, glass bottom boat tours, canoeing and kayaking. Fishing is even permitted in some areas of the park. The park entrance is at Mile Marker 102.5.
