Getting to the Florida Keys and Florida Keys travel information

The Florida Keys are the southernmost tropical islands in Florida that you can actually drive, fly or take a short ferry ride to from mainland Florida. The Keys extend south and west of the Homestead area of Florida, close to Miami, FL. If you make the 130 mile drive across the Overseas Highway to the end, you will find Key West. Along the way are many great experiences and picture perfect blue water and islands. Take your time and enjoy your journey through the Florida Keys.
