★ Florida Keys Travel and Attractions ★
The Florida Keys is a 120-mile-long island chain extending from just south of the Everglades on the U.S. mainland and ending at Key West, only 90 miles from Cuba. The Keys is America’s version of the Caribbean, one of world’s most popular scuba diving locations and the site of many salt water fishing records.
Diving, fishing, sunning, relaxing, birding and hard-core partying are why more than 4 million visitors a year flock to the Florida Keys. Key West, the southern-most dot in the continental U.S., is one of the nation’s most hard-core party spots. Compared to Key West’s outrageous festivals, New Orleans’ Mardi Gras is third league.
With the Keys spanning 120 miles, where are the places worth stopping? What are the dive sites in the Upper, Middle and Lower Keys? The fishing opportunities in these areas?
