Glass Bottom boats

If you are in the Florida Keys you will be able to find information on taking a tour on a glass bottom boat. In Key Largo, for instance, at the John Pennekemp State Park, tours leave on a large air conditioned cabin, which makes it a very comfortable ride.

Just what is a glass bottom boat? The hull of the boat has glass panels from which you can see everything in the water. The captain will take you over coral reef where you can see underneath the water up close without getting wet! Fish, like parrot fish, zebra, barracuda, snapper, nurse sharks, sting rays and grouper can be seen. You will see some beautiful and colorful coral like the purple fan, a very known soft coral that is very dominant in the Keys.

Kokomo in the Florida Keys?

Off the Florida Keys there’s a place called Kokomo

That’s where you wanna go to get away from it all

Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand

We’ll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band

Down in Kokomo

Does Kokomo really exist in the Florida Keys? If you’ve never heard of Kokomo, it was from a song the Beach Boys sang and everyone thought it was in the Florida Keys. Well, turns out Kokomo isn’t even close to Florida. It is in Indiana. This midwestern city is known as the “City of Firsts” thanks to its rich automotive heritage and history of technological discoveries.

What’s Happening in April in Key West?

What’s going on in April in Key West and the rest of the Keys? Well, for starters, if you love to run, join in on the 19th annual Earth Day 5K run. On April 16th, if you are in Key West you can be rewarded with recyclable earth-friendly gifts and awards if you are the top male or female first or second place runner in your age group. The groups range from age 9 all the way up to age 70 and then some. The awards are plentiful though because if you are a walker, and I don’t mean from the Walking Dead walker, you can also be rewarded with some additional gifts for being a top walker. If you are up by 8AM in this town, check out Atlantic Blvd and White Street to join in on the fun.

Do you love art? Visit the local artists at the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Gardens from 10AM to 4PM with a live opening reception on April 23rd from 12 until 2. There you can meet all the artists and take a self-guided tour while enjoying some light snacks. As always, the entrance fee is free, although if I recall they did keep out a donation box, which is easy to donate after you see the Gardens and realize how much it takes to upkeep the place. That was this writer’s opinion. I enjoyed it immensely and didn’t mind donating a few. Continue reading

Hotels in Florida Keys – Pet friendly

"our dog Rowdy"

I’ve got two dogs at home, Chopper, who is a cute little dark haired heinz 57 mutt and Black Wind von Rowdy, a gorgeous German Shepherd who acts like one of our kids. (You can see him sitting on the picnic table above looking like he is all that and more!) I love dogs! I am not crazy about taking them along on vacation but I do understand that some people do love to and that can cause a problem for those who do chose to or have to take their pets on vacation. So I’ve searched for some pet friendly hotels in florida Keys so that you are able to take your favorite pet along if you decide to.

In Key West, just a short walk from Duval Street, is a pet friendly hotel in Florida Keys called the Ambrosia. It is a bed and breakfast and in 2010 the cost to take your 4 legged baby along is about $35. As times change and the years go by, that cost will increase, so you will want to check out their website first or click on the pet friendly ad here on this sight to find other hotels, motels, vacation homes and hotels in Florida Keys that are pet friendly.
