Time is starting to fly; I started writing this new post while in Savannah and two stops later here were are in Beaufort NC just finding the time to finish it up.
It seems like winter is holding on for a grand finale this week, so it’s a perfect time for me to reflect back on the beautiful start we had to our adventure and our 3 month stay in the Florida keys.
Looking back and now looking forward we have already made plans to head back again to Key Largo come next winter. After all, it is like a second home and a great time to dodge the winter and regroup from a busy tour around the states, plus to see a group of fellow RV’ers we have the privilege to call friends.
We really found Key Largo to have a much more appealing charm than we previously thought from the many times we would pass through on our way to Key West when we lived back in Miami. (2009) We love Key West, even got married there, but Key Largo offers a unique quaint feel that gave us a real sense of home and something we could go back to you year after year and it isn’t crazy busy like Key West has become. Plenty do and keep you occupied, from great happy hours, good eats and beautiful sunsets to watch. Key Largo is also one of the best places in the world for Scuba Diving and Snorkling. Plenty to do on and off the water!
As for RV Parks, there were three good size parks that we visited in the area with a 4th being built, so we will look forward to checking it out. Also John Penny Camp State Park was there as well. So if you don’t want to pay the high prices of Key West, Key Largo is a great ! Kings Kamp Key Largo Kampground Point of View RV Park
Savannah was a tougher stop as the weather was just a little chilly and rainy, but we did get a lot done there; Celebrated St. Patty’s, Friends and Family came down and we bought a Jeep to pull behind the Outlaw. We did make the best out of it and really got a good feel for Savannah, more of a touristy kind of town, but if you are looking for a party place, then check out there St. Patrick Day festival, plus any city that allows open intoxicants is good place to be in. 🙂
Savannah Oaks RV (I wouldn’t recommend this campground, we booked late and two others close to downtown were already taken… However, just an FYI, if you are just passing through you can stay at the Savannah Downtown Welcome Center.
Raleigh is our home base, so we were super excited when Veronica found out they just renovated the State Fair Grounds with over a 300+ RV sites with full hookups and very close to the downtown area. It worked out great as this was the closest we could find to our family and friends of Raleigh. Raleigh State Fair Grounds
Now here we are in Beaufort NC and taking a nice month to catch up and relax a little. We had the nice surprise of Margie and Greig (Friends from Key Largo) on their back home to Strafford ON, they stayed for two nights and we were neighbors just like old times. Further solidifying that going back to Key Largo for the winter is a step in the right direction.
