Take a look on the "Florida Keys" forum and to top right corner - top questions. It can be a start for you and help you get a little more specific. I think the top must do is to get out on the water - but if you guys hate that then all those suggestions could be useless.

It's a matter of personal preference. The Keys and nearby Biscayne Bay have the reefs and flats, of course, but there's also state parks and other conservation lands to visit upstairs.

The natural vegetation of the Keys isn't terribly impressive, but it's entirely tropical, with many of the same plants you'd see along shorelines around the Caribbean and Bahamas. The modest but apparently thriving botanical garden on Stock Island (just east of Key West) emphasizes the natives. National Key Deer Refuge is worth a bit of a drive. It's also a place where the effects of rising sea level were noted back in the 1990s. Mangroves are moving inland as plants requiring fresh water retreat toward the center of the island.

Check out Hippomane, the manchineel tree. The whole thing is poisonous, like poison ivy but worse. Amazingly, its wood was popular for fine furniture at one time. I wonder about the workers who cut the trees.
