Less than 20 miles from Miami are a group of islands that seem like a tropical paradise (excuse the mosquitos please). These islands are the Upper Florida Keys, the ones not connected to land by the Overseas Highway, but once upon a time there was a plan to connect them and turn these pristine islands into “The Next Miami Beach.” Along with that dream was born Islandia, an incorporated city inside of today’s Biscayne National Park. We discuss the history of this area and the colorful characters that crossed its path over the years.
Some links you may be interested in.
Biscayne Tales is a podcast about the history of Miami and South Florida. We hope that the episodes will appeal to Miami residents and visitors alike, encouraging them to start their own exploration of the city's people and places. This website is intended to accompany the show and provide additional materials and links for the curious.
Thank you for listening.
