Tuesday EXPERIENCES in Museums, History, and Nature in the FLorida Keys
Museums, History and Nature in the Florida Keys. Every part of the Keys is an adventure experience waiting. Florida Keys History of Diving Museum in the Upper Keys, Crane Point Museum, Nature Center and Historic Site in the Middle Keys, and the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum in Key West…
The Upper Keys:
In Key Largo and Islamorada, where KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has two exclusive locations, Mariners Resort Villas & Marina and the Historic Tavernier Inn
Dedicated to collecting, preserving and displaying artifacts, antiques and photographs relative to diving and its heritage, the Florida Keys History of Diving Museum is not only a unique Upper Keys attraction, but is a valuable educational resource. During tours of the unique museum, visitors come within inches of the earliest diving machines, including a full-scale replica of an all-wood diving bell and the Parade of Nations exhibit, an unparalleled collection of historic hard-hat dive helmets from around the world. Helmets from 25 nations are presented side by side for close inspection. The museum also hosts an annual “Immerse Yourself” free lecture series.
The Middle Keys:
In the Middle Keys, KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has the Village at Hawks Cay Villas on Duck Key, Indigo Reef Resort Villas & Marina and the Coral Lagoon Resort Villas & Marina vacation rentals in Marathon
Tucked away is a secret of the heart of Marathon, a 64-acre tropical oasis of hardwood trees, nature trails, wild bird rehabilitation center and educational displays for adults and children. Crane Point Museum, Nature Center & Historic Site is a destination of its own, and one of the most important historical and archaeological sites in the Keys.
The Lower Keys:
In the Lower Keys, KeysCaribbean Luxury Resorts & Marinas has the Coral Hammock Resort Villas and Kings Point Marina & Condominiums vacation rentals
While many Florida Keys locales are well known and well traveled, visitors often overlook an array of hidden treasures. Exploring the region’s environmental and historic attractions can deepen an enjoyment of the Keys’ colorful culture and character — particularly for artists and writers seeking pristine natural locations and landscapes to spark their creativity.
Historical museums and attractions such as the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Audubon House & Tropical Gardens and the Key West Art & History Museum at the Custom House draw visitors who seek a cultural experience to supplement the traditional “fun and sun” lure of this subtropical resort area.
