For my spring break this year, Clay and I were originally hoping to organize a backpacking trip to Havasu Falls in Arizona. But let's just say we were very, very sad and bummed out when our group was not able to obtain permits during the beginning of February. With that said, we switched gears and decided to plan a weeklong trip to Miami and Key West, Florida so that we could still visit Biscayne National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, and Everglades National Park. (Feel free to check out my blog posts about each of those national park visits!) Anyway, for this post, I specifically wanted to share some photos of our time spent in Miami and Key West. Below, I've also written an overview of all the places we visited & activities we did! Hopefully, if you're ever interested in going, this can help you in your trip-planning!
During this trip, Clay and I discovered Miami to be one of our new favorite U.S. cities that we have traveled to! We just loved so many things about it: the variety of food, abundance of nature (and national parks), beautiful beaches, richness of art and culture, fun nightlife, and overall laid-back subtropical vibe. We'd very much like to go back to Miami some day and also see more of Florida in general. There are just too many options...maybe next time we'll visit Gainesville (where Clay was born)...or Orlando (I've never been to Disney World before!!)...or swim with the manatees at Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River. I want to do all of these things on my Florida bucket list!
Just capturing as I go.
