Key Biscayne should be on everyone’s Miami bucket list. Aqua blue water, incredible Miami skyline views, streets lined with swaying palm trees and endless warm weather. How much better can it get? It probably can’t! Although the Miami Seaquariam tends to steal the attention of most travelers, Key Biscayne is home to one of my all time favorite waterfront parks and lighthouses in Florida–Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park.
The first time I ever visited the park was during my freshmen year of college when my mom came to visit me one weekend and we decided to do a little exploring. Since then, I promised myself that I’d take advantage of living within 30 minutes of this little slice of paradise and visit often. It’s just that good. The views are to-die-for, and the slower pace of Key Biscayne (ya know, compared to South Beach) make for the perfect weekend day date. I finally convinced Nate to tag along with me during my recent visit, and it was definitely a hit! Although it’s no Everglades… it’s still one of the prettiest parks you’ll find in South Florida.
Bill Baggs Cape State Park can definitely be an all day adventure, whether you want to relax on the beautiful beach or take a walk along the waterfront trail to the Cape Florida Lighthouse. We did bothAnd it was definitely one of the best days I’ve had here in Miami!
This park is great for strolling through with the most stunning views of Biscayne Bay. You won’t want to pass this up!
After all, some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat 🙂
