Planning Your Florida Keys Vacation

HomeAbout the AreaFlorida Keys Travel InfoPlanning Your Florida Keys Vacation

As you begin to plan your journey to the Florida Keys, there may be some questions lingering. What do you pack, what can you do while there, where are you going to stay? We at RentTheKeys know that the easiest question to answer is the last one, but to ensure that your fabulous Florida getaway is one that you never forget, we have created this guide to planning your Florida Keys vacation!

Pack Your Bags for a Florida Keys Vacation

This may actually be simpler than you expect for a couple of different reasons. The weather in the Keys is destined to be warm, sunny, and offering chances of rain no matter what the season and the vibe of Florida is casual and laidback. This means you can pack tee-shirts, shorts, swimsuits, and flip flops and fit in nearly everywhere! Equipment for water activities (snorkeling, paddleboarding, even scuba diving) can be rented while you are here, and because our RentTheKeys havens of peace and comfort almost always offer an in-house washer and dryer, you can pack less and save room for souvenirs and gifts. Finally, at least one pair of comfortable walking shoes will be needed, sunglasses, and as much sunscreen as you can carry!

Plan Your Adventures

There are so many things to see and do along the Keys you may have to plan multiple vacations to experience them all! For your first trip, however, let’s stick to beach days, (much of the gear you will need for these expeditions will be found in your vacation escape) visits to aquariums (Mote Marine Laboratory & Museum is just one of many that you can enjoy!) and maybe plan on an entire day spent enjoying the circus. John Ringling lived out his days here and his home is now an homage to the circus, offering art, circus memorabilia, and a historic 18th century theater that once lived in Italy and was carefully dismantled and shipped to the Ringling compound!

Choose RentTheKeys

The last item on this list is the most important, offering guests comforts, luxuries, and fun, especially as you schedule a day at home into your itinerary! Many have pools and hot tubs, community or private, and waterfront homes located on the water ensure that peace and serenity and sensational sunsets will be an everyday occurrence. Reserve your favorite escape today!
