This was our first trip to Keys. We had two kids, ages 6 and 9, one set of parents and two sets of grandparents. The primary excuse for this trip was a 40th birthday and a 70th birthday celebration. We usually travel to Orlando and Anna Maria for the kids, so this was a nice diversion for us.
We stayed in Long Key at a condo that was heavenly! We had 8 in our party, so our criteria were 3+ bedrooms, waterfront, boat dock, and water view pool. This place was wonderful, and the owners were absolutely wonderful. We rented a boat for the week. http://www.vrbo.com/227285
More in a while.
