Key Biscayne

This paradise may be quieter than most South Florida hot spots but it continues to bring guests and residents back for more. Prospective inhabitants will find villas, condominiums, apartments and luxurious houses. Students can attend the local elementary school and then experience the culture of Miami when they reach middle and high school.

New residents will find beaches, tennis and golf courses, and bike trails. The Tennis Center hosts the Lipton Championships annually. Newcomers will also enjoy elegant eateries, gourmet shops, casual cafes, and the historic lighthouse. Families can browse through art galleries on their way to their next snorkeling or SCUBA adventure or trip to the Seaquarium on neighboring Virginia Key. Water lovers will also find world-class fishing and sailing at the local marinas. They can stroll through a local park or nature center and watch the locals swinging in the breeze in their hammocks tied to Palm trees. The 500-acre Crandon Park and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation Area are both popular. Residents may even spot a celebrity or two in this remote and quiet site.
