 Bay Harbor & Coconut Bay Resort 

97702 Overseas Highway, mile marker (MM) 98

Key Largo FL 33037

305-852-5695

The Florida Keys unique laid-back atmosphere is a world away from big cities and theme parks that now dominate most of Florida. Although it was long ago that Florida's ambiance was able to lure renowned novelist Ernest Hemingway to reside in Key West throughout the 1930s, when he drew creative inspiration from the subtropical island's lush environment. Inspiring some of his most famous works including "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "To Have and Have Not" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro." Today the laid-back atmosphere of this small, 2-by-4-mile island probably still nurtures the talents of more writers per capita than any other city in the country.

The keys are a chain of islands that begins just south of Miami, connected by the Overseas Highway’s 42 bridges — one almost seven miles long — over the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The famed highway was designated an All-American Road, the highest recognition possible under the National Scenic Byways program and it really is a spectacular adventure. Key West is situated closer to Cuba than to Miami and once you arrive in Key West you sense you have arrived in a special place.


Nice place to stay in Key Largo is the Bay Harbor Lodge a cozy bay front resort situated on 2.5 acres of lush tropical foliage.

This is a great value and Peg Laron is the owner and  with 15 rooms, there is never a crowd on the resort's private beach. They even offer free kayaks and homemade muffins.


On the way to Key West spend at least a day in Key Largo where you will find the iconic vessel the African Queen made famous in the 1951 movie of the same name starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn she still remains a timeless classic. This famous Steamboat is available for daily canal cruises and dinner cruises in the Port Largo Canal area and also for private events. Website

The African Queen was built in Lytham, England in 1912 for service in Africa for the East Africa British Railways company. She was used to shuttle cargo, missionaries and hunting parties across the Victoria Nile and Lake Albert which was located on the border between the Belgian Congo and Uganda. In 1951 she starred in the famous movie directed by John Huston. Afterwards, she remained in service in Africa until 1968 when she was brought to the United States working in San Francisco, Oregan, and Florida. She has been the pride and joy of  Key Largo since 1982, where she is registered as a National Historic site and in 2012 celebrated her centennial year.

Don't miss the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum which is across the street from the Lighthouse INN nestled in the heart of Old Town Key West.

Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote here for more than ten years. Calling Key West home, he found solace and great physical challenge in the turquoise waters that surround this tiny island. Step back in time and visit the rooms and gardens that witnessed the most prolific period of this Nobel Prize winner's writing career.

As you wander through the lush grounds and enjoy the whimsy of the more than forty cats each with a unique celebrity name that live here. There is also entertaining and educated tour guides that give insightful narratives and are eager to answer questions.

On the other end of the spectrum is the exciting Radisson Edwardian Hampshire Hotel located in the heart of the theatre district. This 5-Star hotel dominates the corner of Leicester Square, famous for its glamorous film premieres. This luxury hotel is one of our top choices because it combines grandeur with elegance, comfort and value, everything a great hotel should be - plus an exciting location close to all the major attractions including Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Soho, China Town, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Regent and Oxford Streets. We love this hotel for its location and the décor of the rooms, which are richly appointed, luxurious with beautiful marble bathrooms and designer furnishings.

The Ritz London

150 Piccadilly, London W1J9BR

As we continue our series on London. It is time to focus on another one of London's best hotels. One of our favorites is a 5-Star Luxury & Boutique Hotel in central London with understated elegance, impeccable service and authentic English grandness. It is the kind of hotel for those who wish to enjoy the ambience of a traditional English hotel, set in a very quiet environment. A favorite of film stars and royalty with understated elegance and authentic English grandness, the Draycott Hotel is more than just a 5-Star town house suite hotel; it occupies three red-brick Edwardian homes just around the corner from Chelsea's Sloane Square and Kensington. Staying in this elegant town house will evoke a sense of old world romantic charm and elegance for which the city of London is so famous. Here you will feel as though you are home. Perhaps, the most unique feature of this hotel is it really makes you feel that you are in your own home in London with your favorite house staff.

The small coastal town of Figueres, just north of Barcelona, is known for only one thing - Salvador Dalí. Though the artist's fame brought him to more glamorous parts of Spain, near the end of his career, Dalí returned to his hometown to began building his greatest masterpiece.

The small coastal town of Figueres, just north of Barcelona, is known for only one thing -

 

Salvador Dalí. Though the artisit's fame brought him to more glamorous parts of Spain, near the end of his career, Dalí returned to his hometown to began building his greatest masterpiece.

BARCELONA Highlights

Barcelona The Spanish village (Poble Espanyol)

Built for the 1929 International Exhibition, the Spanish village (Poble Espanyol) was created from the desire to concentrate the soul of Spain in a single space. Today most of its constructions remain intact and are scale reproductions of buildings, squares and streets of different regions of Spain. Strolling through Poble Espanyol you’ll discover not only buildings, but also artisans you can watch live as they work, as well as viewing pieces of contemporary art by universal figures like Dalí, Picasso, Miró o Guinovart. And don't miss the new Feeling Spain audiovisual installations, which will take you on a virtual trip through the geography and the most authentic traditions of Spanish culture.

With a varied programme of events for the family and adult public, and shops, workshops, bars and restaurants open every day, Poble Espanyol is packed with life 365 days a year. Family activities, shows, music, cuisine...Poble Espanyol has everything you need to enjoy, on your own or in company, a day in the open air in unbeatable surroundings, without leaving Barcelona.

One of Europe's most uinique churches, this spectacular basilica is the most famous sight in Barcelona. The Basilica de la Sagrada Familia stands in the northern part of the city, dominating its surroundings with its 18 spindly towers soaring high above all other monuments. The Basilica of the Sacred Family is also known in Spanish by its official name: Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família.


Antoni Gaudí was commissioned in 1883 to design this basilica as a neo-Gothic church. But instead of following the plans, he created a signature example of his famous surrealistic Art Nouveau architecture. He had no firm ideas in mind, preferring to alter and add to the plans as work progressed. Although Gaudí had originally forecast between ten and fifteen years, the church was never completed. As a result, the main work by the most important Catalan architect of modern times remains just a shell, and nobody knows whether or when it will ever be completed.

The lavish exterior with its expressive Nativity facade depicting the birth of Jesus, and the evocative Passion facade that illustrates the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Equally stunning, the interior is an immense space of 90 meters long by 60 meters high. The ceiling sparkles with decorative details, and colorful stained-glass windows allow ethereal light to flow in.

The apse features an unusual Crucifix rendered as a canopy with lanterns. The overall effect is a must-see experience . Gaudí best captured the essence of his architectural masterpiece when he described it as "a work that is in the hands of God and the will of the people."

Incredible Predators 3D takes a detailed look at the remarkable strategies the Planet’s top hunters use to succeed - deconstructing their tactics as never before.  Advanced filming techniques, including the latest gyro stabilized cameras, put the audience right beside the predators as they hunt, whether on land or under the sea.

Far from being a film about killing, Incredible Predators 3D focuses on strategy and the huge effort hunters must go in order to survive. In fact, most predators fail most of the time. It’s why they are the hardest working animals on the Planet. To have any hope of success they must be at the very top of their game.
Incredible Predators 3D features the most iconic hunters on earth, like polar bears, cheetahs, leopards and blue whales. The audience will be emotionally engaged with these key characters as they learn about their challenges and dilemmas. Wherever they live on our planet, predators are at the top of the food chain.

When they are doing well, we know the habitats they live in are healthy too.  The competition between predators and prey are the most dramatic events in nature but this relationship is also essential to the balance of nature. Incredible Predators 3D is the perfect blend of genuine animal drama and learning.
