Recommendations for the Florida Keys?
I like to contemplate future trips and the Florida Keys would fit into the 3-4 year out category (it's a big trip from CA). Looks to me like some state parks would do rather nicely, Bahia Honda SP, and Long Key SP, and John Pennekamp Coral Reef SP. Reservations can be made 11 mo in advance so it's probably not a last minute type deal but being retired I can make long range schedules.
I'm thinking that spring is maybe the best time of year to go, supposing that mid-winter crowds may be gone and hot/humid hurricane season has not started yet. I will take my window-mount AC in any case.
From my location in CA the Keys in spring could fit well into a trip to Quartzsite AZ, followed by Mardis Gras in New Orleans and then the Keys.
Any thoughts or recommendations are appreciated, thanks.
