    German Travel Reporter Kathrin Rein takes you on two wheels to the highlights of the Florida Keys.

    Kathrin Rein: Hi! This is Kathrin Rein and I am in Miami Beach, Florida. And today I am setting out on motorcycling trip around the Florida Keys.

    [Music]There is no better way to see the Florida Keys then on two wheels. You got nature, wildlife, tons of camping and state parks, seven hospitalities sea food and miles and miles of incredible costal views.

    As you head further south you'll crossover the famous Seven Mile Bridge, but be careful it also may present the most challenging riding, strong winds coming off the water.

    The first key you'll get to is Key Largo and the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. If you're into diving and snorkeling this maybe a dream destination for you, as you get a chance to check out the Coral Reef as well as a bronze statue of Christ with His arms upraised to the sun.

    Continuing south the weather warms and the views keep them getting better with the wildlife reserves and state parks dominating the scenery. My next recommended stop would be Bahia Honda State Park that you'll be blown away by the beaches as well as the snorkeling and diving opportunities, this maybe the place where you decide to rent a cabin or pitch a tent for a while to get a feel of what island living is all about.

    Next stop Key West and Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, to many Fort Zachary Taylor State Park has the best beaching key rest and a perfect place for history buffs who will like to explore.

    While in Key West check out the Harbor Inn an adult only luxury bed and breakfast where motorcyclist are expected and welcomed.

    At night you'll have to make a stop at Key West famous Duval Street for some late night fun and partying.

    And this is Kathrin Rein enjoying this incredible motorcycle ride in South Florida.
