Spend Some Time in Paradise
The thought of the Florida Keys often stirs up images of tropical sunsets and crystal blue-green waters, tropical flavors of local cuisine and tangy key lime desserts. No matter what your perceptions of the Keys may be, there’s nothing like experiencing your first sunset melting into the Florida Bay.
The Florida Keys are commonly thought of in terms of the Upper and Lower Keys, with main islands like Key Largo, Islamorada and Key West being main points of interest. No matter where you travel, you’re sure to marvel at the tropical paradise that is the Keys as you travel down the legendary Overseas Highway.
The Upper Keys
Known for some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the area, particularly off the coast of Key Largo, the Upper Keys is where we call home. We’re located at Key Largo’s southern tip in Tavernier. Our central location makes it easy to see top attractions like John Pennekamp State Park—just a short 20 minute drive away. We’re located minutes from Islamorada, the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.” Visitors and locals alike appreciate the quiet, slower-pace of the Upper Keys, all while being close enough to enjoy the party and the buzz of Key West.
The Lower Keys
As you travel south down the Overseas Highway, you’ll pass through Marathon, traverse the famous Seven Mile Bridge and eventually dead end into the life of the party, Key West. Definitely worth the 2 hour trip, Key West is steeped in history and full of unique eateries and attractions. For more about Key West and the Lower Keys, visit the official guide. The Florida Keys may still be a part of the continental U.S.—the southernmost part, to be exact—but it feels worlds away. Filled with rich arts and culture, local pride and tropical scenery, there’s something magical about the Florida Keys that will call you back year after year.
