Key West and Florida Keys is a category that spans from the mainland on the Florida peninsula to continental USA’s southernmost point and even further out to sea, to the Dry Tortugas National Park.
Sure, Key West is a place for party. But also a very relaxing city characterized by emancipation. Benchmark for almost everything – from where you stay to where you eat and drink – is the main street Duval Street in Old Key West.
Key West and Florida Keys are not beach destinations, but there are several beaches near the city center and some along Overseas Highway.
In Old town you encounter leafy residential streets and a lifestyle that is, to say the least, “cool”. A true “conch” (native Key West resident) takes the day as it comes.
Read about the mile markers that follow you to Mile marker Zero and towards the southernmost point. After Key Largo you will pass over 40 islands and bridges.
Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key, Bahia Honda state park Seven Mile Bridge are some of the benchmarks along the route.
Remember: No stress on the road or during your stay in Key West and Florida Keys. Overseas Highway is slow and for the trip you need to spend at least two days and nights.
