Most people who come and visit the Florida Keys usually
either drive all
the way down, or fly into Miami and drive down from there. There are
a couple of nice spots you can stop and take a quit dip on the way.
At just about mile marker 72.5 on the Atlantic side of US1 you
a couple of small parking lots for Ann's beach. One has restrooms and a
place to change. The two parking lots are connected by a walkway that
takes you though the mangrows with a spot for a picnic about half way.
I use to always stop here when I came to the Florida Keys on vacation.
After driving for hours this was a great spot to stretch my legs and get
my first swim in the Keys. Even when your leaving
home this is great for getting and enjoying one last swim in the clear blue
waters of the Florida Keys be for you leave them.
