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!
