Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

The Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail (FKOHT)is about more than just transportation. It’s about recreation.

The trail currently spans more than 70 miles between Key Largo and Key West. More sections of the trail are under construction; and eventually it will stretch the whole way from Key West to the mainland, running parallel to Highway 1.

FKOHT is scenic from start to finish. It’s a beautiful venue for walking, running, cycling, in-line skating, and even fishing. The trail crosses 23 historic Flagler Railroad bridges, many of which now have cantilevered fishing platforms. Anglers will want to check out Channel Two Historic Bridge and the Tom’s Harbor Channel Historic Bridges.

10 Florida State Parks are located along the trail, making it easy to explore different sections of the trail without traversing it entirely by bike or on foot. These parks also provide great opportunities for snorkeling, paddling, and swimming.

While it is true that every traveler wants a unique experience, immersing oneself in the natural beauty of the Florida Keys is an essential part of a Key West vacation. The Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail helps people–both travelers and locals–get close to nature. It provides safe opportunities for walking and cycling, and scenic opportunities for fishing and picnicking. In addition, it has many good launching points for kayaks.

Ask the innkeepers about the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail during your next Key West Bed and Breakfast vacation. It’s worth discovering.

Spring Biking in Florida

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Spring is a super time for a bike trip through Florida. Call a friend, pack your panniers, and plan a route from one Florida Bed and Breakfast to the next. Allow yourself to be pampered at the inns after miles in the saddle: soak in hot tubs, swim in pools, and sip wine on porches. Each morning you’ll be fed a tasty, nutritious breakfast before embarking on another day on the road.

Florida has more than 300 miles of trails suitable for biking. Just imagine how many Bed and Breakfasts Florida you’ll pass along the way.

Bike the Pinellas Trail in the Tampa, St. Petersburg area of CW Florida, or between Dade City and Citrus Springs. Explore the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail, which runs from Key Largo to Key West, or the Florida National Scenic Trail from Pensacola to Miami. Bike the short High Bluff Coastal Trail overlooking St. George Sound in NW Florida, or the 46-mile Withlacoochee State Trail between Orlando and Tampa.

It's just waiting to explore Florida.

Bike with a small group of friends or with your one-and-only. Enjoy a weekend bike trip or a lengthier trip of a week or two. No matter when you bike or where you bike, you’ll find Florida Bed and Breakfasts ready to welcome you.
