3Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida

Situated 70-miles off the shore of Key West in the gleaming Gulf of Mexico, this park is different than Everglades National Park. It is mainly open water with seven little islands and coral reefs.  

Marine life is the center of attention. Here travelers can enjoy scuba diving, kayaking, and snorkeling. Visitors can also learn about Fort Jefferson which was erected on Garden Key in the 19th century. If you like stargazing then consider camping here too. Make your reservations early and remember the ferry leaves Key West at 8:oo a.m. every morning.
