About Angela A
Lives in Louisville, Kentucky
Since Oct 2012
I love to travel. I am not happy unless I am planning a new adventure, returning to a beloved city, or blazing a trail to somewhere I have never been before. My favorite places in the world are London, New Orleans, Disneyland, and Salem, Massachusetts. I also love to write about everything and anything to do with travel. I have penned travel guides for TripAdvisor on Jamaica, Nassau, Charleston, Savannah, Nashville, Punta Cana, Kissimmee, San Juan, Panama City Beach, Louisville, Cincinnati, Key Largo, Biloxi, Tampa, Cleveland, Clearwater, Branson, Pigeon Forge, and Phoenix.

This botanical park offers over six miles of nature trails, some of which are even paved for cyclists. Visitors will see plenty of protected flora and fauna as they hike, and many of the trails display interesting information about these along their routes. If you're super-keen to learn more about some of the 84 protected species of plants and animals, you can also request a Ranger-guided tour.
Island Time Cruises offers fun, family-friendly sunset cruises that afford wonderful views. There is a distinct party atmosphere on board the riverboat — although not too raucous — with delicious cocktails at great prices, a DJ playing tropical music, and dancing by guests of all ages. Children are very welcome, and you can even take your stroller aboard!
This state park is absolutely unbelievable! The underwater park offers snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities, while above the waves, you can take a glass bottom boat tout, kayak, canoe, and more! Campsites are also available in the park should you wish to extend your time here, along with swimming and picnicking facilities.
Dolphin Cove offers visitors the chance to experience an interactive encounter with dolphins in their natural habitat — a great activity for animal lovers of all ages. Guests can choose to either swim with the dolphins, or interact with them in shallow water — meaning even the littlest ones in your group can get involved.
Harry Harris Park features a man-made beach on the Atlantic Ocean that is perfect for swimming or sunbathing. The waves are very gentle, due to a coral barrier, and although the beach may be small, it's one of the best spots to cool off in Key Largo!
Jacob's Aquatic Center offers three distinct swimming areas; one is especially designed for kids with a children's pirate ship, sprays, and geysers. I would highly recommend this outdoor spot to families with small children in particular.
The African Queen Canal Cruise is a must when visiting Key Largo. This steam-powered boat offers cruises down the Port Largo Canals, and you may well recall this iconic vessel from the Bogart and Hepburn film of the same name!
Key Largo is the perfect place to parasail, whether this is your first time, or you are pretty used to flying through the sky! This company offers single, tandem, or triple sailings, with either a 500 foot or 1000 foot line.
The Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center enables its guests to get close up to their collection of recuperating wild birds, as they walk along a series of scenic boardwalks. Plenty of informative plaques offer information as you stroll, allowing you to learn more about how each bird ended up here, and the great efforts made by the dedicated staff. Expect lots of pelicans and egrets in particular!
If you are interested in bicycling around Key Largo, then this should be your first stop! This outfit is also conveniently located on the Overseas Highway, the main road through Key Largo.
