Yahoo! Travel Names Florida Keys Among the Top Five Best Summer Road Trips in the United States


Driving can be about as fun as sand in your beach bag. Besides those long hours where your backside is whining – and the kids are asking are we there yet? – it can be so boring, rolling across the miles with little to look at.

Not so when you take a trip to the Florida KeysYahoo! Travel just named the Florida Keys among the top five best 2011 summer road trips in the United States.

And why not?

As a Yahoo! search blog post quotes, "from Key Largo, near Miami, a series of bridges and causeways means you're driving over beautiful blue waters for more than a hundred miles, until the end of the road in Key West, the southernmost point in the continental United States."

I couldn’t have said it better myself!

The Florida Keys also ranked among the top five Yahoo! Travel most-searched United States beach destinations.

Never been to the charming chain of islands? That’s as sad as a beach bunny without flip-flops, because they’re as laid back as juice-in-the-blender, as quirky as six-toed cats and as high-spirited as a hurricane.

Just check out this video of beautiful Bahia Honda State Park in Big Pine Key. It features fabulous Florida history and beautiful, award-winning beaches as well as an awesome natural getaway for outdoors fans.
