Default I need Florida Keys advise .

The girlfriend just informed me ,we are going to Key Largo in late November .

I figured I would ask you people your advise and ratings on the Keys. All she really wants to do is lounge around on the beach and just relax . Try to forget about life for a while ! Maybe take in some cool sights . How is Key Largo ? Are there other towns worth seeing ?

The plan for now is to fly into Miami and drive down . She figures Key largo because it is close . What places should we see ? Where can we stay on a budget ? WHere are the great places to eat on the water ? ( I have to see boats or I'll die !)

If by some miracle ,I get my motor home done , we'll drive all the way and not need a place to stay !! So then my question becomes : WHere can we stay in a motor home ? Can you just stop along the road or beach anywhere ? Thanks for the help .

Take a run to Key West. More to see down there. They have all kinds of Tours down there. From a LightHouse to Hemmigway's house.

Florida Keys advice?

Try not to run into;
Parnell / Nauty Kitty
Jim / WickedWon
Brandon / pokedherrun...
Steve / Nykamp
and a few other degenerates that also hang here on this board and you should be all set.

November??? Shouldn't you be in Key West?

In Key Largo, check out http://www.keylargoresort.com/ and http://www.chesapeake-resort.com/ is on the next Key just west of Key Largo.

Its all about fishing and diving/snorkeling in Key Largo. See John Penecamp state park.

We are going to Key Largo in a few weeks and staying at Hawks Cay resort. (thanks to Ron P and other OSO'ers for the great info!)

Everything you need is right there at the resort -- bars, several restaurants, shopping, gift shops, grocery store, dolphin swim/training school, adults only pool, kids pool, scuba/snorkeling/parasailing/air boat trips, water craft rentals and sailboarding. They even have a shuttle bus from the Miami Airport if you don't want to rent a car. www.hawkscay.com

But call them directly - while they do have Internet specials, we got an even better deal by talking directly to the staff. (Thanks to a fellow OSO'er for the tip!!)
