What if I told you there was an island full of wild monkeys here in Florida - and you can actually go there and witness the beauty of nature, and the amazing habitat of Monkeys!
I have lived in Tampa Bay my entire life... born and raised in Hernando County, and never in my life have I ever heard Monkey Island. This is a real place, just north of the Tampa Bay area - just off the coast of Homosassa.
Here is the official website for "Monkey Island" and they encourage you to visit.
if you want to plan a trip to go visit , check out the Homosassa Riverside Resort --- or you can get even closer by boating over. The address of the resort is 5297 S. Cherokee Way, Homosassa, FL 34448.
