Sumptuous Accommodations with Private Views of Purple Isle
Since it debuted in 1940s as the Olney Inn, Cheeca Lodge & Spa has played host to presidents, performers, athletes, and other luminaries. The opulent resort occupies 27 acres on Florida’s Upper Matecumbe Key and has a nine-hole golf course onsite and a private beach lined with shade cabanas and palm trees. Each room or suite has a private balcony with a view of the ocean, lagoon, or resort.
Whether you're on a family vacation or a couples getaway, the resort offers a wide variety of activities to choose from. You can cast a fishing line off of Cheeca's 525-foot pier or take a snorkeling trip or sunset cruise. There's a tucked-away spa where you can take relaxation to the next level, and kids can try their hand at arts and crafts and scavenger hunts at Camp Cheeca. Access to the fitness center is covered by the resort fee, which is reduced with this Groupon.
The Florida Keys: Maritime Escape on the Overseas Highway
Islamorada is located in the upper portion of the Florida Keys, southwest of Key Largo. It's a quiet, laid-back place that typifies the Keys lifestyle; many people visit just to bask in the sun. You can also go from snorkeling with dolphins at one marina to kayaking with paddle-wielding manatees at the next. Most restaurants offer beach or patio seating for a nice view of the sunset.
The historic Overseas Highway was once a railroad connecting the Keys; after it was hit by a hurricane in 1935, it became a thoroughfare for motorists to drive right along the water. At Bahia Honda State Park, there's a bridge that commemorates the old railway.
