My wife and I tend to only justify a vacation when it includes plenty of time exploring oceans and baking in the sun, so we decided to head south to Key West. Check out some of our adventures below by following in our footsteps as we snorkel, kayak, and imbibe our way through this awesome little town.
We stayed in a great hotel called the Southern Most Point hotel. It was a bit pricey and we were disappointed by the beach, which was filled with sea grass (no fault of the hotel of course) but otherwise found it to be a great place to stay. Click More Details for photos and, well, more details.
When I was young, I idolized Tony Hawk. It was for all the obvious reasons: Skateboarding was cool, and I daydreamed about, hey, maybe I’d become a skateboarder too. It didn’t happen because of my massive lack of coordination and fear of suffering injuries, so I stuck to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater video game ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Nonetheless, I was pretty stoked when I found out that Tony Hawk’s organization chose MapifyPro to showcase their skatepark maps. Since 2002 the Tony Hawk Foundation has been fulfilling its mission to help young people by issuing grants to low-income communities building quality public skateparks, and providing guidance to city officials, parents, and children through the process. To-date, the foundation has awarded over $5.7-million to 588 public skatepark projects in all 50 States, and $100,000 to support the Skateistan program in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa.
That’s pretty incredible. Feel free to dig in even further by checking out the video below.
How Tony Hawk uses MapifyPro:
The THF map is packed with over 600 locations, each showcasing a fully funded and available skate park. Tony and crew believe that kids need a place to grow in a safe and positive environment with like-minded friends. Engaging the community is key, and their implementation of MapifyPro makes it simple to find a nearby skatepark.
Interesting facts about the Tony Hawk Foundation:
$9-million has been awarded by the Tony Hawk Foundation to help create public skateparks.
