BILL BAGGS CAPE FLORIDA STATE PARK
anyday

Celebrate the old-fashion way and discover your backyard. Head to a local "key" for a day at the historic Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in Key Biscayne, with a lighthouse built in 1825 (reconstructed in 1846) that is the oldest standing building in Miami-Dade County. Spend Earth Day swimming and picnicking on more than a mile of sandy white beaches. You can bike, kayak, fish, take a guided tour of the lighthouse and the lighthouse keeper’s cottage or enjoy a meal at one of the two restaurants, Lighthouse Café and Boater’s Grill.
