Key Biscayne is a tiny island village where residents drive around on golf carts. It is bordered on both sides by parks and beaches. Drivers approaching from the mainland pass through Crandon Park, home of popular Crandon Beach. On the other end of the island is the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation Area, where visitors can enjoy an afternoon at the beach, a bike ride along the park's paved trails, dinner in a waterfront restaurant, and a guided tour of the Cape Florida Lighthouse. Key Biscayne is also home to the Miami Seaquarium, where marine life enthusiasts can swim with the dolphins. Bike paths on the bridge from the mainland make the Key a popular destination for weekend bike trips. Located along the same road that leads to the mainland, Virginia Key also offers a mountain biking trail for more adventurous travelers.
