Road Trip Sights: Manatee Mailboxes

A few days ago, I read and commented on a blog post about driving to Key West. That post included a picture of a manatee mailbox.

I cannot find that blog post but it reminded me of my own Florida Keys scenic drives and pictures I have taken of manatee mailboxes.

Here are some pictures of manatee mailboxes. Florida has many other species of kitschy mailboxes, like alligators, flamingoes, sea turtles, and pelicans.

The above picture, of course, was taken around Halloween. Think the postal delivery person was scared?

The above picture is the same manatee mailbox around Easter. The hat is a great disguise.

The above three photos were taken of the same manatee mailbox in the Florida Keys, on Upper Matecumbe Key near Islamorada. I love seeing this manatee mailbox and others on Florida road trips.

Here is a manatee mailbox from Indiana Rocks Beach, south of Clearwater Beach.

Even though I have seen dozens, perhaps hundreds, of manatee mailboxes, these are the only photos I have found in my library. I will remember to taker more manatee mailbox photos on future trips to Florida and the US Gulf Coast.

For more great pictures, enter “manatee mailbox” into Google.

As you can imagine, Florida has many other species in the kitschy mailbox category. I have seen alligators, flamingoes, sea turtles, pelicans, and horses. Probably others I cannot remember at the moment.

What are some cool, happy, and fun mailboxes you have seen?

Sharing is caring!

  1. Charles, There is a John Deer tractor mail box on the way to Aldie, VA on Rt 50…may not be the strangest – but it is quite iconic for that part of the world.
