The Florida Keys are a string of tropical islands stretching about 120 miles off the southern tip
of the U.S. state of Florida, between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. They’re known as
a destination for fishing, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving. The southernmost city of Key
West is famous for Duval Street’s many bars, Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration and
the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum.
The Florida Keys have become a popular destination for Americans looking for a tropical
vacation without leaving their own country. The Florida Keys can be considered the American
Caribbean and features all the same amenities as other island destinations such as world
class Florida Keys fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling, boating, sailing, kayaking and eco-
tours. Each of our island destinations has unique features. We invite you to visit each area
individually and discover our tropical paradise on your next Florida Keys vacation.
