Florida Keys History and Attractions

Cindi Dolberry writes that her favorite part of Florida are the unusual Florida Keys which consist of approximately 1,700 islands located in the southeast United States, beginning at the southeastern tip of Florida, 15 miles south of Miami.

The Keys arc south-southwest and then turn westward to Key West which is the last inhabited island, but the uninhabited Dry Tortugas are also a part of the island chain.

The Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson is one of the most remote, smallest, and least visited national park and definitely worth visiting. Besides the historic 1846 Fort Jefferson, there are seven small islands, nesting areas for a variety of wild birds, coral reefs and snorkeling and scuba attractions.

Cindy's favorite resort, Venture Out is Oceanside at mile marker 23 on Cudjoe Key.

Venture Out has views of the Atlantic Gulf Stream and Hawk Channel. Sunrise is breathtaking reflecting in Kemp Channel and sunset is a performance to be viewed from Cudjoe Bay.

Venture Out first opened in 1969 as a RV resort and still has some open lots for RVĀ“ers. One of the few places in the Keys that is zoned for RV.

Through the years an eclectic assortment of trailers, mobile homes and recently stilt houses have moved in making the resort as diverse as its full time and snow bird residents.
