Worth a stop to get info before heading further down into the lower keys and Key West. Staff is really friendly and can give some good insight on things to do and places to eat.

Upon asking, they can share tips, info and discounts for key hot spots, directions, and little known... More

She even recommended where to park and was the most helpful and informative of any visitor... More
