Florida Keys Kayaking Adventure – 2TravelDads

Florida Keys Kayaking - The Globetrotter Guys

Florida Keys Kayaking was one of our favorite parts of our road trip from Miami to Key West (mmm, key lime pie!). The best places to kayak in Southern Florida are spread out between the many islands, and they aren’t all where you’d expect. This is our guide to kayaking with kids in the Florida Keys, and any of these spots are great as an adult too.

As we go through the many kayaking spots in the Keys, you’ll see that some of the launch sites are in state parks and others are public access via beaches or boat ramps. Wherever you’re putting in, and whether it’s a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard, always be aware of wildlife, underwater obstacles, and other boats. Remember, safety first in all things if you want to have an amazing Caribbean vacation!

Best Places for Florida Keys Kayaking

Kayaking through the backcountry waters of the Keys, and you’ll see one of the world’s most diverse marine life ecosystems. The quiet, shallow backwater region of flats and mangrove islands has inspired many naturalists and outdoor enthusiasts to combine environmental tourism with the sport of sea kayaking. The opportunity to explore such serene, untouched areas is very special.

Hiking Palm Springs, California – 2TravelDads

Hiking Palm Springs - 2TravelDads

We love to find places that everybody talks about but nobody knows the cool stuff you can do there.  One such place is Palm Springs, California.  I mean, everybody goes there for a nice weekend or a relaxing vacation, but besides golf, gay bars and swimming pools, what is there?  The ACTUAL Palm Springs!! Agua Caliente Indian Canyons is the reason for the name, and hiking here is awesome!

Have you been to Palm Springs and done the oasis hikes at Indian Canyons or out at the Coachella Preserve and know what we’re talking about?  Been thinking about a visit maybe but didn’t know what to do beyond golf and shopping?  Well, let us give you some motivation to make a weekend trip out of it or at least get you away from the pool for a few hours – try hiking Palm Springs!

Visiting Palm Springs and the Indian Canyons

A two hour drive from Los Angeles, Orange County or San Diego, PS lies to the east of the coastal cities.  You’ll have to pass through Riverside or Ontario, so plan for city traffic on your drive… or you can just take a short flight from any of the Southern California airports.  Actually, most West Coast airports have direct flights into town.

Once you’re in town, drive right through to the end and follow the signs for Agua Caliente Indian Canyons. After about ten minutes you’ll be at the park entrance. Pay your fee and pick where you’d like to begin, then enjoy hiking Palm Springs and all its glory.

2 Cranes Inn Zion – Utah Lesbian Owned Inn

2 Cranes Inn Zion - Utah Lesbian Owned Inn


2 Cranes Inn – Zion took flight as the desert heart and vision of two San Francisco Bay Area natives, Lisa and Lizette, who both moved to Zion Canyon in 2015.

Between us, they bring a broad range of professional, academic, and life experiences to their Utah lesbian owned inn. These include tech development and design, fine arts, music, parenthood, meditation instruction/Buddhist chaplaincy, environmental and sustainability education, mindful running, and professional Integral Coaching.

Within a year, the inn unfolded as the contemplative, creative, eco-conscious home-like sanctuary we would want to land in during our own travels.

We offer four cozy, distinctive, themed bedrooms, each with attached full private bathrooms, keyed entry, cliff and garden views, and a communal kitchen waiting downstairs for you to brew fresh ground coffee or tea, or prepare your favorite breakfast, all on your own schedule. We are located in the pastural oasis town of Rockville – quaint but quietly artsy, and just a 5-minute drive from the more bustling gateway town of Springdale at Zion National Park’s South Gate. 

At our Utah lesbian owned inn, our extensive exterior gardens, all open to guest use, include a wraparound porch, sandstone firepit, commercial grill, fruit trees, hammocks, and a river stone and lawn walking labyrinth, in which to wind, and unwind…
