I think the drive through the keys alone makes the trip worthwhile . We headed out from Englewood Fl for what was to be , according to GPS a 6.5 hour trip . It took more like 8 hours , due to our many stops for pictures and the slow moving traffic.
Happily we arrived in time to see the beautiful sunset. Pictures tell a thousand words when it comes to sunsets!

We wondered do the waters always have this amazing sparkle and colour.
This picture was taken from the point that is marked as the Soutern Most Point , only 90 miles from Cuba.
No wonder it feels so Caribbean.

There's a carnival atmosphere to the city. Lots of steet performers. Even the animals get in the act!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Caribbean climate and you can drive there.
  • Cons:Lots of tourists.
  • In a nutshell:A great get away to a beautiful sundrenched part of Florida

    It is a long way down there, but I am moving closer so may get down there yet.

    I would love to see the Hemingway House and gardens. The sunset from the beach is stunning. The historic seaport is pretty awesome too! Nice page!
