Kid Friendly Activities In The Keys

To say we kept busy while in the Florida Keys would be an understatement. I was originally worried that there would not be many kid friendly activities in the Keys for us to do with young children, but I was way wrong. We did so many amazing thing. We saw so many amazing places. And we left with memories that will last forever. If your headed to the Keys any time soon, here are a few of our favorite memories all experienced with an 18 month old, a 4 year old, a 6 year old and an 8 year old.

Feeding the Nurse Sharks at the Key West Aquarium. We all got to take a turn. The kids tell all their friends that they got to feed a shark.Feeding Sharks in the Florida KeysFeeding the Tarpon at Robbies. This is an experience that is hard to describe. It is a total rush. The kids did not feed the Tarpons, but they really enjoyed watching.Feeding Tarpon in the Florida KeysLearning (and getting to touch) all about Dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center.kid friendly activities in the Keys.Getting to hold a starfish at the Key West Aquarium. Held a StarfishStepping into a room filled with thousands of butterflies at the Key West Butterfly Conservatory.
