The Land That Time Forgot!

6787188512_7f9c901dab_bUnlike the 2009 Hollywood movie of the same name ‘The Land That Time Forgot’, you’ll find no dinosaurs here! Other things you won’t find are paved roads, traffic jams or telephone poles. I ask you, “Does your Town Square have a wooden street corner sign pointing towards it?”

Believe it or not, there’s a Florida Key FROZEN IN TIME for some 100 years now. This ENTIRE Key has NO paved roads nor telephone pole… NOT ONE! That’s right, dirt roads and wooden street signs are the norm throughout the standalone island. Accessible by boat, this throw back island lives on as a testament to a forgotten past.

You too can visit this ‘Land That Time Forgot’ now known as Indian Key as you look upon this former town’s ruins. Though not free, you can find a catamaran tour boat company at Robbie’s Marina at Mile Marker 77.5 on US-1 bayside to take you there… it’s worth the $20-25 to get there and back!

P.S. – Did I forget to mention that there’s no people living here either! 🙂
