Miami is considered one of the top vacation destinations in the world. Now, once you have lived and worked there for several years, you don't see it that way at all: Hence the need of finding a relaxing getaway destination to 'disconnect' to the real world and 'recharge' batteries.
Enter the Keys!
I usually hit the keys once or two times a year. Oh Joy! I always say that the keys is more than a destination: It's a state of mind.
I would like to share with you guys some highlights of the trip!
Sat, Feb 19:
8:40 am: We hit the road! Tons of excitement and Coldplay's albums for out entertainment.
11:00 am (aprox): Power breakfast break at one of the best spots in Islamorada The Hungry Tarpon. Enjoy the nature, try to feed the tarpons and take some pics to the gorgeous pelicans, while you wait for the eggs and pancakes 'du jour'. You can also stop by the stores featuring some of the finest artisan work made by local artists.
3:00 pm: Time to hit the beach! Fort Zachary Taylor, turned out to be an amazing option to spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing under the sun. we read that the Fort also offered the best views of the popular Sunset. We decided to give it a shot, and instead of doing the popular Mallorly Square, we remained in the park. Well, let's just say that it didn't disappoint us. It's a more 'intimate experience' and equally beautiful!
And speaking of cardio, if you are looking to work your legs, climb to the top of the popular Lighthouse, in front of the Hemingway house. Nice views!
5:30 pm: Feeling the Summer Blues as we drive out of KW! Anyway...it was an amazing weekend!
