July in the Florida Keys means that summer vacations are in full effect, so the coastlines and waterways are bustling. If you’re looking to beat the heat, Islamorada offers a number of art galleries and boutiques that provide solace from the sun and certainly make for an interesting day.
There’s a reason why Old Road Gallery is #1 on TripAdvisor: this spot is renowned for gorgeous pottery and art by Keys locals, but it also includes the owners’ workshop, where visitors can witness the constant elaboration of a tropical hardwood garden with winding pathways adorned with sculptures and surprises.
If you’re looking for options, head to The Rain Barrel Artisan Village to discover one-of-a-kind creations in both the main gallery and the craft stands throughout the property. If you’re not looking to shop, you can always snap a family photo with the famous giant lobster sculpture outside.
Seaside Glassworks is also deemed well worth a stop for the incredible, colorful pieces that the artists fashion from glass. No matter how you choose to spend your time on land, we know you won't be disappointed!
“Love, love, love this place. Everything is pretty, well kept and clean. Palm trees by day & fire pit by night plus all the lawn games, pool, & tiki bar. Do yourself a favor & stay.”
