The Florida Keys offer a wealth of vacation fun, times five. The Florida Keys include the five main islands of Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and the Lower Keys and Key West. Together, the Florida Keys make up a 125-mile-long string of islands that begins just south of Miami. The Keys are a terrific destination for singles, couples, families and retirees – anyone wanting to relax, have fun and enjoy life in a tropical setting.
Regardless of which island you choose to visit, the beach is never out of reach when visiting the Florida Keys. In addition to miles of sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and fresh seafood, the Keys offer an abundance of attractions and activities, including diving and snorkeling, sightseeing, boating, shopping and much more. As a matter of fact, Islamorada is touted as the “sport fishing capital of the world,” offering a number of big game fishing adventures.
The Florida Keys are also steeped in history, dating back to the 19th century, when piracy and wrecking were leading industries. Notable figures including Ernest Hemmingway and Robert Frost once called Key West home, and today their former residences are open to the public.
The Overseas Highway connects all of the Keys – Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and the Lower Keys and Key West, so visitors can easily explore each of the Florida Keys and take in as much tropical fun as they can handle.
