Craving crystal-clear waters, vibrant coral reefs, and a laid-back island vibe? A day trip to the Florida Keys from Fort Lauderdale is the perfect escape.

Take a scenic ferry ride or cruise down the Overseas Highway, a historic road dotted with islands. Key Largo, the largest island in the Keys, is home to the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, where you can kayak through mangrove forests or visit the unique underwater wonders at the Key Largo Dry Tortugas National Marine Sanctuary.

Let the Florida Keys whisk you away to a tropical paradise, just a day trip from Broward County.
