Memorial Day means one thing in Miami: Urban Beach Weekend, and unless you're a hip hop head whose prepared to circle through Washington and Collins hoping a space will open in the garage on 7th, then you'd better pack your bags and hit the road, Jack.
It's tradition that Miamians amass the Florida Keys this weekend, crashing at a friend's canal-view trailer, fishing with the boys at the crack of dawn and taking ratchet pictures at the Tiki Bar that probably shouldn't go on Facebook. But besides great boating and fishing ops, Key Largo and Islamorada boast a helluva lineup of shopping destinations and, in true Racked fashion, we've rounded up a list of those that are worth a stop on the Overseas Highway.
We left out the bait and tackle shops (we'll let the sea life experts sort those out) and concentrated on stores that sell great beachwear, novelty goods, vintage treasures and, of course, touristy gems, because heaven forbid you go home without bringing mom a frozen key lime pie. Did we miss anything? Know where to shop past MM 63? Let us know in the comments section or drop us a line here, and we'll consider including it in our next weekend shopping trip through the Keys.
