Biscayne National Park, just south of Miami, is actually part of the Florida Keys. The park occupies the four northernmost islands in the Florida Keys, sandwiched in between Key Largo to the south and Miami Beach to the north. This park is popular with scuba divers, but the reef lies in only 30 feet of water, so scuba gear isn’t required, a simple mask and fins will suffice.
Other activities include boat and canoe tours, fishing and lobstering. There are many beautiful picnic areas and nature walks where every view is a scenic one. There’s a campground for those wanting to rough it and on the second Sunday of every month from December through April, Biscayne National Park hosts Family Fun Fest.
