Cabbage Key,  Florida
Most people flock to Cabbage Key, a 100-acre refuge off of Pine Island Sound, to have drinks or lunch at the Cabbage Key Inn, a converted 1928 house set atop an ancient Calusa shell mound. Over the years, patrons have plastered the bar and restaurant with thousands of dollar bills, and locals like to claim that longtime regular Jimmy Buffett was inspired to write his song "Cheeseburger in Paradise" here (and not in the Caribbean). Day-trippers stroll a nature trail studded with mangroves, buttonwood trees, and cabbage palms--the source of the island's name.
