Fort Jefferson & Dry Tortugas National Park
A popular day trip amongst those visiting Key West is an excursion to Fort Jefferson and Dry Tortugas National Park. Discover the history of this “Guardian of the Gulf” by taking a guided tour with rangers that can walk you through the Fort’s past and give you an inside look at all its stories. There are also plenty of other activities that create a full day of exploration. Take a dip for a bit of scuba diving, geocache, cast a line and fish, ride the waves on a boating excursion, kayak, and more!
A Drive Across The Seven Mile Bridge
If you are looking for incredible views that will take your breath away and don’t mind being in the car for a bit, take a drive across the Seven Mile Bridge. This stretch of road is built to connect the keys and parallels the original structure of the Overseas Railroad that was damaged beyond repair in a hurricane. The new highway is open to motorists to get from Key to Key and take in the sights of panoramic ocean views on either side, while the old portion is open to cyclists and pedestrians to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Bahamas. Go as far as you want, stopping in the different Keys along the way. When you’re ready to turn around, make your way back as the sun sets over the waters and casts vibrant colors across the tropical sky.
When you set out to do a bit of Key hopping during your stay for a day trip excursion, make a stop at Bahia Honda State Park. Along the Seven Mile Bridge, this paradise invites you to explore the raw beauty of the Florida Keys. Take your time as you make your way through the park, soaking in all of the natural wonders. Discover the flora and fauna, kayak, snorkel, rent a bicycle, and find many other wonderful adventures within the park.

Each night you can return to the comforts of The Cabana Inn for a great night’s rest to set out on more adventures each morning. What are you waiting for?
