Our Florida travel vlog continued to Key Largo. We went to the beautiful Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Everglades National Park, and then through the Keys. Vizcaya was the winter retreat of James Deering of the International Harvester fortune. This National Historic Landmark was built in 1916 to commemorate the Italian Renaissance. We toured the museum and gardens and had a wonderful time, and then we went camping in Key Largo, Florida. While there, we explored John Pennekamp State Park. It was the first underwater state park, by snorkeling the living coral reef and seeing the “Christ of the Abyss.”
The next day we went on a boat tour through the mangroves of the southern Everglades National Park, where we saw manatees, dolphins, and various birds. We finished our fantastic visit to the Florida by spending a little time in Key West, Florida, the southernmost point in the continental United States.
