Feed the giant Tarpon ( or watch very excited toddlers do it) at Robbie's

I second Robert is Here- a produce stand that sells ( and gives samples of )exotic tropical fruits and makes incredible fruit shakes.

This day trip may help a bit. It's really too much to do in a day this time of year but if you skip the snorkelling, you'll have time for a great day in the Everglades and Keys.

Because of the cashless toll section of the Florida Turnpike in the Miami area which you might use to go to the Keys it has become important to be aware of how the rental car companies charge you when you use the built in toll transponder to pay for the tolls.

Read www.sunpass.com to avoid any unpleasant surprises when it comes to the fees the car companies charge.
