The Florida Keys and Key West

Key West Florida

Key West Florida is at the Southern-most point in the United states? It is located at the very Southern end of the Florida keys. It is an island and a city in the Florida Straights. To get there, by car, your journey starts about 25 miles south of Miami, Florida, on US Highway One. You drive from one key to the next key crossing over long bridges.

One of them is the famous Seven Mile Bridge. On shore there is everglades and mangrove, while on the bridges you have pretty  views of the water and boats of all sizes. You might even get a glimpse of the protected Key Deer!

Key Largo

The first key is Key Largo, largest of the Florida keys. points of interest include Gilberts Resort and Marina, many gift shops and the John Pennykamp Coral Reef State Park, and Florida Keys National Marine  Sanctuary, where you can take a nice

Beach at John Pennykamp State Park

Key West has a charm of it’s own. to be enjoyed. Duval Street and Mallory Square is the center of tourist life. Don’t miss a spectacular sunset, viewed from Mallory Square, a tour of old Key West on the Conch Train or Key West Trolley.

One of the very popular photo op locations is the US 1 mile marker zero sign. It’s a mere 2400 miles to the other end. It is either the beginning, or the end of the  road, depending on how you look at it! Don’t worry, there are many “potty breaks” in between.

Fort Zachary Taylor State  Park is a short distance off-shore, and can be reached via ferry boat ride.  The fort pre-dates the Civil War. Many Cruise Ships also Stop at Key West.

There is a bus trip tour from Miami, but I prefer to drive myself! The Florida Keys and Key West should be on your bucket list.

    The trip to Key West is long and sometimes slow moving, but there are many things to see, along the way.
