This was a great way to learn about the surrounding area while driving to Key West. We stopped at multiple places along the way because of the app and we didn’t regret a single one. Take your time and enjoy! Some of my favorite memories are because of the stops we made.

It was our first time but really that was amazing and my wife realize one of her dreams...it was to see and touch a sea mammal...just beautiful.
