Cape Florida has long served as a beacon for freedom - from Seminole Indians seeking to remain in their Florida home, to runaway slaves and Black Seminoles who secretly gathered before taking safe passage to the British Bahamas. Witness the breathtaking panoramic views from Cape Florida and visit the lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. A piece of living history, the lighthouse was first erected in 1825 and has survived almost 200 years of erosion hurricanes, and attacks. The lighthouse is now part of the National Register of Historic Places.
Check out Stiltsville
Where: Stiltsville, Key Biscayne, Florida, 33149
If you're ready to witness a unique phenomenon, head down to Biscayne Bay and look out into the sea. You will spot seven buildings hovering over shallow waters. These structures are what are left of a larger community-at-sea that comprised 27 structures at its peak, all located at least a mile from the shore. Started around the 1920s or 30s by Eddie Walker, the shacks served as gambling and alcohol dens for individuals frustrated with state and national laws. The structures are owned by the National Park Service as part of Biscayne National Park, and are managed by the Stiltsville Trust.
Take a dive to a lost city
Where: Neptune Memorial Reef, 3.25 miles offshore, Key Biscayne, FL 33149
If you like diving, have a unique experience in Key Biscayne and discover a lost city under the waters. Originally named the Atlantis Memorial Reef, the Neptune Memorial Reef is located about 3 miles off the coast of Key Biscayne in Miami and was designed by Florida artist Kim Brandell. It opened in 2007 and serves both as an underwater cemetery and an artificial reef. Cremated remains are cast into concrete memorials and placed within the sunken necropolis, where divers can explore or visit with loved ones. Most of the architecture in the 16-acre underwater cemetery is concrete with bronze and steel accents, and serves as a unique remembrance to the dearly departed.
