...but the quaint shops keep you there. We spent hours browsing and buying amongst small wooden venues packed with, for the most part, hand made merchandise. From tin works of art, leather, wood, pottery, glassware to scruptious food, eclectic knick-knacks, beachwear and baubles, packing our suitcases with reasonably priced "treasures"!
All the shop keepers were pleasant, friendly and a wealth of information about local attractions & sight seeing. Watching the artisians sculpt their wares was amazing and flawless. So much talent here!
Do not miss the Rain Barrel! It is a must stop and a highlight in Islamorada area.
