If you're looking for a low-key vacation, Big Pine Key is the place for you.
In Big Pine Key, about 100 miles south of Miami and 30 miles north of Key West, you'll find relaxing, water-borne activities such as boating, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling.
Fishing, of course, means seafood, and you'll find some of the nation’s best seafood restaurants in Big Pine Key and on nearby keys.
Don't miss the beautiful white sand beaches at Bahia Honda State Park.
At the National Key Deer Refuge, you can see the tiny – and very cute – wild deer known as Key deer, about the size of a large dog. The kids will love it, and so will you.
