Need the scope on Tavenier.

We are having a small family gathering in Tavernier 10/10 - 10/15. 7 Adults, 3 toddlers. We are staying at a rental home. I am looking for information on good beaches, restaurants, grocery store and fun things to do.

Thanks - all information is appreciated.

1. Re: Need the scope on Tavenier.

You should probably post your questions on the Florida Keys forum. Tavenier is in between Key Largo & Islamorada and is a very small town. If you look at Buffetguy69 or Keymom posts and a few others you will find go lists with lots of things to do in the keys. It is not far to drive to most of the other keys. Key West will take about 2 1/2 hours.

Here are a few things:

Rain Barrell Art Gallery (Tavenier)

The Fish House (restaurant Key Largo with excellent Key Lime Pie!)

Lazy Days (good restaurant in Islamorada)

Robbies (feed the tarpon in Islamorada)

Deer Key (on you way to & from Key West) There are small deer that feed along the roads. Sometimes you will need to turn on the side road at the traffic light to see them as during midday they are not out near the highway.

Pigoen Key (historical island at the 7 mile bridge which has a boat tour to it)

Bahia Honda State Park (just past 7 mile, make a day of it with picnic lunch, nice beach area)

Sparky's Landing in Marathon / Key Colony Beach great for lunch or dinner

You will get much more info than this about the dolphin & sea turtle venues and other things if you research the Florida Keys forum.

Also I reccomend contacting the chamber of commerce for either Key Largo or Islamorada and requesting and info packet. That will help too.

I think you will have a great vacation.

Forgot to mention Islamorada Fish Company has a fish and shark feeding a few times a day. You might want to find out the times, the kids will love it. The World Wide Sporstmans store is there and has a huge fish tank with snook, tarpon etc and also a Hemmingway sailboat that you can explore which is inside the store.

You can also feed the fish at the Lor e Lei while eating lunch or dinner. Not sure about the food lately. I hear mixed reviews. It used to be one of the fav places to eat.
