The Islamorada Area:
Here a couple videos from the Chamber of Commerce to give you an overview of Islamorada:
Some guest favorites you may want to check out:
“Theater of the Sea” is about a half mile south, where the kids can “swim with the dolphins” and see a show. There is also the Diving Museum and World Wide Sportsman’s large aquarium of local sportfish —both a few miles south gulf side. Founders Park is a mile north gulf side with a sandy beach, community pool, playground, tennis and basketball courts, and more. It often hosts concerts and other functions also.
There is also lots of shopping in and around Islamorada:
Groceries—CVS and the Trading Post, both a few miles south gulf side and offer basic groceries, beer and wine. For a full grocery shopping trip, Winn Dixie is about 8 miles north gulf side and Publix is a few miles further north Oceanside (we prefer Publix). Also, a new Publix is currently being built just a few miles south of Anglers gulf side is scheduled to be open by April/May 2018.
The dining is great as well:
Pierre’s — next to Worldwide Sportsman, overlooking the bay, is one of the best (and classiest) restaurants in the Keys. (No jacket or tie required, of course, but a place you could get a little dressed up for if you wished to.) Morada Bay Beach Café is associated with Pierre’s and right next to it – we prefer it – similarly excellent food but in a very casual “barefoot in the sand” ambiance. Both bayside and south. Here is an aerial video of the two restaurants.
There is a “Keys-y” waterfront restaurant and nightspot/sports bar a short walk north called Hog Heaven which has well-priced lunch and dinners and a Happy Hour for drinks and bar food (good wings and ribs!) plus weekend live entertainment. Other restaurants we like include the Green Turtle and Lazy Days, both a few miles south oceanside, and Marker 88 a few miles north bayside. Many other restaurants are also closeby.
