Anne’s Beach, Oceanside. Anne’s beach is a lovely, sandy free beach, so shallow you can wade out great distances. The shore is lined with mangroves, through which a boardwalk, with periodic picnic tables, weaves. Anne’s Beach has limited parking and is very popular. If you can get a space, it makes a nice 20 minute stop in your roadtrip to wade in the shallow water.

73.0
Channel 2 Bridge. Off shore on the bayside can be seen the remains of eight concrete bridge pilings built by the WW-1 veterans. Excellent fishing off the bridge in the channel.

Grassy Key, Dolphin Research Center. The focus of this not-for-profit facility is on education. Rather than choreographed shows, trainers hold informative sessions as visitors stand on the dock around open-water tanks. Many ways to interact with dolphins are available for an extra fee.

56
Curry Hammock State Park offers swimming, a playground, picnic tables and some of the most sought-after camp sites in the Keys. Day visitors can launch kayaks from the beach and paddle coves and trails. There’s a 1.5-mile nature trail for hiking, and you can bike along the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail.

54
Entrance to Village of Key Colony Beach, Oceanside. Take the Sadowski Causeway/6th Street to the end and turn right on W. Ocean Drive for the Key Colony Inn, one of the best restaurants in the Keys. Prices are moderate and the seafood selection outstanding. Truly, a hidden gem off the beaten path. The same causeway passes another good waterfront seafood bar and restaurant, Sparky’s Landing, which has indoor and outdoor seating and live music.

53.5
Island Boat Ramp. Public boat ramp adjacent to The Island Fish Company Tiki Bar & Restaurant, which is also a great place to eat and drink. It has the longest covered tiki bar in the Keys and is ideal setting for watching sunsets.

49.0
The Stuffed Pig. Bob’s favorite breakfast destination in Marathon.

48.5
The Turtle Hospital. Located in a former motel bayside on the Overseas Highway, the Turtle Hospital supports its program of rescuing and rehabilitating about 100 injured sea turtles a year through the admission price paid by visitors. A 90-minute educational tour is given several times a day. Visitors meet the injured sea turtles up close and get to throw some feed into their tanks.

48.0
Turnoff to Chiki Tiki Bar and Grille at Burdines Waterfront, one of the best casual restaurants and tiki bars in the Keys. To find it, you turn east on 15th Street in Marathon, wind past an old trailer park and stacks of lobster traps, and arrive in a large working marina in a protected harbor. The Chiki Tiki is up a flight of stairs, giving you an excellent vantage point and a breeze.

47.5
Porky’s Bayside BBQ and Captain Pip’s Marina & Hideaway, the place to be in the 1950's when it was known at Bill Thompson’s Villas and Marina. Such notables as Ernest Hemingway, Jimmy Hoffa, Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher were regular visitors. Reviews on Yelp! and Trip Advisor are quite complimentary, with special kudos for the atmosphere and tasty barbecue dishes.
Seven Mile Grille. Outdoor eatery at the foot of the Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon. A landmark serving “Keys food.” Breakfast and lunch menus are reasonably prices and you can’t beat the sunset view during happy hour. We included Seven Mile Grille in our wrapup of Keys tiki bars.

47.2
Knight’s Key Campground. Oceanside. There are 192 RV sites, some waterfront with dockage, and prime location at the foot of the Seven Mile Bridge. Many amenities nearby, as well as the “old bridge” and Pigeon Key. For reservations, call (305) 743-4343.

47.0

39.9
Veterans Memorial Park. This small, free oceanside park just south of the Seven Mile Bridge is a great place to stop for a picnic or to use the restroom. Picnic tables are under chickee huts, there’s a beach where you can wade or swim and palm trees lean like they are waiting to be captured in a postcard. It’s also an easy kayak launch. If it’s crowded, there’s also a large parking area and a small boat ramp bayside.

Ohio-Missouri Channel Bridge

38.8
Sunshine Key RV Resort and Marina. Crowded in winter.

38.7
Ohio-Bahia Honda Channel Bridge

36.8
Bahia Honda State Park entrance, oceanside. In my view, Bahia Honda is the best of the state parks in the Keys. It offers a great beach and snorkeling, good kayaking and the old camelback bridge is an awesome sight up close. On top of that, there are campsites and several well-equipped, reasonably priced cabins. Of course, campsites and cabins book up many months in advance, so plan ahead to stay overnight. Book your campsite reservations through Reserve America.
