Things to Do in Islamorada and
the Florida Keys
From feeding wild tarpon by hand – a fish that can grow to weigh 150 pounds – to learning about Islamorada’s history that always has been tied to the seas, coral reef and limestone rock, there are plenty of interesting things to do and see in the Florida Keys. Individual excursions and group tours await with a variety of vendors in a range of venues. Whether ambling by bicycle along our federally-designated All-American Road or touring by watercraft, Islamorada natives want to show you a great time while sharing the limitless wonders of their island home.
While many visitors come to the Florida Keys relax, staying busy is never a problem in Islamorada. Theater of the Sea, one of the nation’s oldest marine wildlife parks established in 1946, continues to thrill visitors and families with educational and entertaining dolphin and sea lion shows, as well as special programs. One-of-a-kind history museums, national monuments, and state parks also call Islamorada home. So, have it your way… be as active as you choose.
Anne’s Beach at mile marker 74 oceanside offers a sandy public beach, restroom, raised boardwalk with shady picnic areas, and access to fun in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Likewise, Founders Park Beach, in a municipal park at mile marker 87 bayside, offers room for sand castle building, water sports, and a chance for youngsters to scoop up marine species in inexpensive nets and observe them in a bucket until it is time to release them back into their salty home. Freshwater showers help keep beachgoers comfortable at the end of their day.
