Indian Key Historic State Park is a small island only accessible via boat. It can be an ideal location for those looking to swim, sunbathe, and hike along with other activities. Open year round starting at 8am to sundown, this historic park sits on 11 acres and only 1/2 mile off shore. Back in the 1800's it was business salvaging cargo for the Florida Keys. It is a great visit for a day of animal watching and kayaking in which you can easily see a stingray and maybe even a shark.
