DRY TORTUGAS
This one will take more planning than the others, but well worth a visit. Located 70 miles west of Key West across open water, this very-remote national park is a true escape from day to day life. It is accessible only by ferry or seaplane. But you won’t miss civilization. The Dry Tortugas are like something from your dreams about paradise.. The park is dominated by Fort Jeferson, the largest brick building in the western hemisphere. Surrounded by impossibly crystalline, turquoise-hued waters, its beaches are lush with sugary sand that begs you to ditch your sandals.You can kick back on the beach, snorkel the beautiful living reef or explore the island. You can even camp here, which is on my Bucket List, with reservations.
