 Embrace Summer with Some Fun New Activities

 

FLORIDA KEYS — The Florida Keys & Key West continue to spotlight the destination’s eco-oriented “Connect & Protect” initiative to encourage awareness of sustainable, memorable activities for visitors. Here’s what’s new:

Keys Tours 

In the Lower Keys, new daily interpretive trolley tours of Bahia Honda State Park, offered by Friends of Bahia Honda State Park, describe the natural ecosystem and history of the park. Tours are scheduled at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Suggested donations of $5 per person go to the Friends of Bahia Honda and are used for beautification and restoration of the 524-acre park. Visit floridastateparks.org/parks-and-trails/Bahia-Honda-state-park or call 305-872-9807.

 

Hydrobikes are powered solely by your peddling efforts.

Key West Hydrobikes offers hourly rentals or tours from various Key West locations, including Simonton Beach (only 4 blocks from Ambrosia). Cyclists on pedal-powered nonmotorized water bikes can cross Key West Harbor to the back side of Wisteria Island to dismount and snorkel in the island’s uncrowded waters. Tours are guided or nonguided. Visit keywesthydrobikes.com or call 800-935-6927.

Key West’s newest attraction is the Sails to Rails Museum at Flagler Station in the Key West Historic Seaport. Guests can follow an interactive timeline of Key West history to learn about the industries of sponging, turtle harvesting, shipwreck salvage (also called wrecking) and cigar making. The state-of-the-art museum features hands-on exhibits, intriguing video presentations, unique artifacts. Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

And Last But Not Least.....

We have dropped to our low season rates, even though low season doesn't start until August 16.  So take advantage of these great savings.  If you haven't been here in a while, we miss you!  And we hope you miss us too.

 

 Please call us directly at 305-296-9838 and ask one of our helpful and friendly Front Desk Ladies to book your stay.

 

                 Meet Finn, July's Pet of the Month.

Finn is a ridgeback/lab mix that was found wandering the streets in Chipley, FL at only 3 months old.  He was rescued by L&R rescue of Navarre Beach, FL and was adopted by Margo and Paul McDaniels.  He now lives with them in Sarasota.

He's traveled to several destinations, but Key West is one of his favorites.  He loves staying at Ambrosia and having breakfast out by the pool.  He loves that Key West is so pet friendly and that he's welcome at so many great restaurants, art galleries, and shops.

Thank you, Finn, for being Ambrosia's Pet of the Month for July.  We look forward to seeing you again soon.

A donation will be made in Finn's name to L&R Rescue in Navarre, FL
