First timer with Questions!!!

We scored a campsite at Curry Hammock for Christmas & are soooo excited!! We're a very outdoorsy family (kids are 16 & 12) looking for some great insight.

From reading through the posts on TA, this is our list so far.........

Kayaking through mangrove trails

Biking to 7-mile bridge

Feeding tarpon at Robbie's

Bahia Honda & Sombrero Beach

Snorkeling at the reefs

Daytrip to Key West

Any input is appreciated! We don't go anywhere without doing our "research" on tripadvisor. We LOVE this site!

Lucky you! Those campsites (or any others in the keys) are not easy to reserve. Be sure to add The Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research Center to your list. Also, check out the trails at Crane Point Museum and Nature Center (also in Marathon).

Right there where you are staying is great kayaking. You also have the Grassy Key Trail right across US1, there is a nice lagoon area over there (cross US1, get on bike path and turn left. Maybe a mile down you'll see a "nature board" follow that dirt trail back). Nearby is a cabled wake-board - the 16 yo might like that. Across from Office Depot you can rent paddle boards if you like. You really don't even need Sombrero as you have a quiet beach where you are staying.
