As with many of the "out of the way" places in many corners of the world there are localities, sites, and experiences that rival those of Ripley's Belive it or Not. The Florida Keys is no exception. If you have any points of interest you think we should add, please let us know.

Lower Sugarloaf Key, FL - Perky's Bat Tower
bat-tower.jpg - 7286 Bytes The Bat Tower was built to house bats. A guy by the name of "Perky" decided he wanted to open a resort on Sugarloaf Key, but the mosquitos were so bad he realized that nobody would want to stay there. Perky heard that bats eat lots of mosquitos so he built this tower to attract bats. Perky imported bats which promptly flew away, never to return.

Directions:Take US-1 South into the Florida Keys. At mile marker 17 take a right hand turn onto Bat Tower Road. (Bat Tower road is not marked with a sign, just take the first right hand turn after mile marker 17 sign). Take the right at the road fork.
