Key Biscayne Commerce & Culture
The barrier island of Key Biscayne is a Florida key, yet it is not part of the Florida Keys. Regardless, it is a singular locale only the Sunshine State could produce. Sharing the isle’s area with Key Biscayne are two lush natural spaces. To the north, Crandon Park is an all-purpose expanse, counting white-sand beaches, a championship golf course, kayak and paddleboard rentals, and more across its 800-plus acres. Southward, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park also has a divine beach, trails for biking, hiking, and wildlife exploration, and aquatic offerings from fishing to snorkeling. There’s also the towering Cape Florida Light, presiding over the reef-laden coast since 1825 as the oldest standing structure in Miami-Dade. Closer to civilization, restaurants with waterside views are a given, and abundant shops are sure to keep the mainland even further in mind than it is physically.
