Stay

Jules Undersea Lodge


We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Once the sea levels our land we can use this as a model for a new housing option! Yes. This is an actual thing. That is correct, for under $1000, you can stay overnight in this clubhouse located over 20 feet beneath the mangroves of Key Largo. If thats outside your budget, go for the more affordable, world famous, three hour pizza lunch. Environments like this are proven to reduce anxiety, and decrease stress. They say they have wifi, but I’m skeptical whether it reaches down that deep. I doubt you’ll need it while you snooze away in your own private isolation tank surrounded by the beauties of the ocean.

Imagine yourself paddleboarding under the bright lights of the full moon! This is just one of the amazing tours that this venue has on the lineup. Although the tours are recommended because of their knowledgeable and friendly staff, you can also rent their equipment and venture out on your own if you don’t need a guide. MMM Pro Tip: download their app to earn loyalty points, and score last minute deals. Sounds like another cool app we know!

With plenty of options on land and sea, this state park is a can’t miss. Pack a picnic, and take a stroll through one of their trails. Grab your fishing rod and see what bites. Stay dry by enjoying the extraordinary marine life from the comfort of a glass bottom boat. Get wet and take a dive through the stunning coral reef garden. Play in the stunning underwater seapark, complete with statues for photo opps you can’t duplicate above the surface so bring your waterproof camera. Another do not miss is their 30,000 gallon saltwater aquarium that is located in the parks visitor center.

Until recently it was an agreed upon fact that Key Lime Pie was first made by a woman only known as “Aunt Sally” who worked in the home of a Bahamian immigrant back in the 1800s. Regardless of its origins, the best versions are found right here in Florida. At this long standing restaurant people line up for a slice. Make sure you try their Lobster Bites too!
