Island Paradise, Tranquil Retreat
Just off the coast of Miami, Florida, lies the picturesque island paradise of Key Biscayne.

The Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, located at the southern tip of the island, boasts historic structures, including the Cape Florida Lighthouse, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
Key Biscayne's strong sense of community is a defining aspect of its charm. With a population of around 12,000 residents, the island exudes a small-town feel where neighbors know each other by name, but you will also find luxurious Bayfront estates in addition to beachfront condominiums with unique design. The close-knit atmosphere is fostered through community events, local gatherings, and a shared appreciation for the island's unique lifestyle. This sense of belonging is especially evident during the annual Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks, a cherished tradition that brings residents together to celebrate.
