At a Glance

The Florida Keys are a string of tropical islands stretching 120 miles off the southern tip of Florida, between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. This two-by-four mile island, has everything is proximity so you can easily get around on foot, bike, or scooter. Party every evening at Mallory Square, where everyone gathers to watch the sunset with sword-swallowers and fire-jugglers. Ride the Conch Train. Visit Ernest Hemingway’s Home. Peruse the pirate treasures on display at Mel Fisher Maritime Museum. Take a selfie at the iconic Southernmost Point marker that marks 90 miles to Cuba. Duval Street is famous for its many bars. The Florida Keys are known for its fishing and snorkeling, shopping, and art galleries. Dining is all about the freshest seafood (conch fritters are a must), and of course, Key Lime Pie!
