The Florida Keys
In today’s video we are going back to the Florida Keys. The Keys are divided in three main sections. The Upper Keys encompass Key Largo, Tavernier, and Islamorada. The Middle Keys is basically Marathon, and perhaps the most developed area of the Keys. The Lower Keys are basically everything south (or west rather) of the Seven Mile Bridge, my favorite part of the Keys, and that’s where we’re going.

Our first stop is at the Indian Key Fill, a man-made Island that is roughly at the halfway point. I usually like to stop here when going to the Lower Keys because there’s usually plenty of room to park and have a snack, stretch our legs. In the distance you can see Indian Key, a historic site and ghost town only accessible by boat. Taking advantage of the remoteness and natural beauty of this area I decide to test out the new DJI Mavic Drone, which just arrived this morning.
Sugarloaf / Key West KOA
After going through Marathon, Big Pine Key, and many of the other Lower Keys, we arrive at our campground, the Sugarloaf / Key West KOA, self-proclaimed the Southernmost KOA. We are only 20 miles from Key West so everything from here on is pretty much the “southernmost”.
We spend the next day and a half frolicking by the pool, kayaking, eating and drinking. The two main places we visited were Mangrove Mama’s and Boondocks, which were not very lively this time of the year. I never realized before how low the low season really is around here. The campground was half full, and at one point we were the only people at Mangrove Mama’s.
Key West Sunset Cruise
On the second day we drove to Key West to sail on a sunset cruise. We’ve wanted to do this for a while. After some research we opted for Sebago, one of many companies that offer this type of cruise. The cruise takes two house and we were pleasantly surprised that there was an open bar with all you can drink champagne, sangria, select beers, wine, and margaritas. Oh, by the way, the sunset was pretty spectacular too.
