Florida Winter Nationals is a paddling community gathering at Holland Park in Hollywood, Florida
Your in-town gateway to the outdoors
Heaven on Earth? Well maybe yes! Virginia Key Outdoor Center (VKOC) is the best place to enjoy the outdoors.
Rentals are available daily so you can experience a stress free outdoor adventure seven days a week.
Our nature viewing is exceptional. Virginia Key, a hammock nestled amongst an urban metropolis, presents opportunities for residents and visitors to connect to the outdoors and Miami’s history. Opening pathways to nature – take a guided walk on a nature trail, paddle above manatees gracefully swimming in the gentle lagoon current, Virginia Key OC is magical place within minutes of the city.
With miles of trails and surrounded by water you can bike, paddle, run, or walk. Kayak fishing, swimming, snorkeling are only footsteps away.
Don't leave without visiting our snack shop. We have cold drinks, hot coffee, and delicious treats.
And as an added bonus and rarely found in a park - showers, and clean air conditioned bathrooms. Really! Come visit, become part of the VKOC family.
Come visit the Florida wilderness, it's near, it's right downtown.
