What Our Visitors Say

Amanda P - Greenville, NC

My boyfriend and I visited the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center today and it was one of the best decisions of our trip. The nature trails are very woodsy — you’re going to see bugs, spiders, etc., so be aware — but we had an absolute blast. The area is gorgeous and we took amazing photos. Explore the entire area at your own pace and definitely do the fish pedicure!

JK - Atlanta, GA

Needed a break from the water and decided to hit up Crane Point with the family. We spent about 2 hours wandering the trails - had no idea this was here in the middle of Marathon! A little taste of the natural side of the keys - various areas like the butterfly meadow and mangrove trail, one of the oldest houses in the keys, the bird sanctuary, and (my kids' favorite) the little area for fish "pedicures." Felt like I could come back here many times and still not get to see it all. But 2 hours was plenty in the heat of the afternoon - bring water!!! Definitely on our must return list.

I found this by googling things to do. I wish we could have spent more time here. It is absolutely beautiful! We found kayaks half way through our journey that we could have taken out and explored more but we didn't have enough time. Give yourself a couple hours to explore and make sure you experience the fish pedicure!
