Island Vacation At Florida Keys

Florida Keys offer some of the most wonderful vacation stops in the world. This is the long stretch of land south of the mainland. It is comprised of five groups of islands known as Key Largo, Marathona, Lower Keys, Key West, and Islamorada.

The first area you reach is Key Largo. This is not very far from Miami, about one hundred and sixty miles. At once, you notice the change in atmosphere from the hustle and bustle of a city to a more laid back air.

People may think that places like Hawaii or Bahamas are the ultimate destinations for vacations but that is not true. In the Florida Keys you can do and see whatever you want. There are isolated beaches for those who want a more private time alone, in the form of Islamorada or Marathon Island and there is an active night life for the more socially inclined.

As for accommodations, there is a range of selection to pick from. If you want a luxury setting with five star standards, there are plenty of places that fall in that bracket. If you prefer a simpler setting there are some rustic places available as well. And with the Gulf of Mexico on the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, no matter where you are in the Keys, the beach would most probably be right outside the door.

There is a lot to see and do in the Keys. Each area has its unique flavor. If you want to be very active there is a whole array of fishing, diving, and trekking programs available. Or you may simply enjoy swimming in one of the most pristine waters on earth and sit in the sun a little later. There is plenty to see too, the Keys are home to a number of artisans and artists for those who are interested in things of that nature.

Florida Keys has a lot of things to experience. Its like that all year round. The residents of Florida call it the 51st state because of its uniqueness and its semi isolation from the other cities in Florida. The only drawback of the Keys is that you would not like to leave you may end up making it your home.
