The Florida Keys make an absolutely wonderful vacation destination at any time of year, one that many visitors find themselves returning to again and again. Allow this Florida Keys guide to give you information about the culture, activities, and overall ambiance of the Keys.
Whether you’re into fishing, diving & snorkeling, boating, cuisine with a “Floribbean” accent, the fine arts, live music, or you’re just in search of some world-class relaxing amidst tropical breezes – after all, The New York Times headlined a Keys article “Just Possibly the Best Place for Doing Nothing” – you can indulge yourself in The Florida Keys.
The Florida Keys comprise most of Monroe County which borders Miami-Dade County on the Florida mainland and extends to Key West and surrounding islands. The mainland portion includes part of The Everglades and Big Cypress Nature Preserve. The entrance to The Keys begins on US-1 in Florida City. Key Largo is located roughly 18 miles from there following either the “18-Mile Stretch” or Card Sound (toll) Road.
The Keys has five principal areas: Key Largo, Islamorada, the Middle Keys (including Marathon), the Lower Keys, and Key West. Florida Keys Vacation Rentals has an office in each location for your convenience. US-1, also known locally as The Overseas Highway, connects the major islands. It is roughly 108 miles from Key Largo to Key West. There is an airport served by commercial carriers in Key West. Another airport in Marathon offers private and charter service. Direct flights to Key West are available from many Florida points of origin as well as from Atlanta and the Bahamas.
