Situated between the Gulf Stream and the Great Bahama Bank, Bimini is island territory so idyllic, it's attracted timeless celebrities. Ernest Hemingway once lived in the area; Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote part of his "I Have a Dream" speech here. And everyday folks enjoy the area too. Here are the top four ways:
By diving: The crystal clear waters around Bimini make for excellent scuba diving jaunts, on which divers see sights from starfish to shipwrecks.
By gambling: The resort's 10,000-square-foot casino features table games from blackjack to roulette, as well as slots and a sports book.
By fishing: Bimini has a reputation as the big game- and bone-fishing capital of the world, in part because it borders the Florida Straits, which reach depths of up to 6,000 feet.
By taking a cruise to Miami: On a boat, dubbed the Bimini SuperFast, with six restaurants and bars.
