THE KEYS LIFE

A visit to the Florida Keys discovers that these islands are more than just a beautiful, laid-back place to relax and enjoy the scenery. In addition to fishing, diving, snorkeling and cruising on the water,eating in the great variety of excellent restaurants,walking the waterfronts and beaches, shopping in the many unique boutiques, galleries and gift stores, there are also museums, theaters, state parks, historical monuments and more.

Our favorite lunch destination whether by boat or by car is Little Palm Island. If going by car you will catch The Truman Ferry which departs from Little Torch Key (reservations advised). Little Palm Island is a fabulous resort and a special treat for lunch because you can enjoy the open air dining bungalow.  The food and service deliciously compete with the breathtaking views.

In the early 1900's, travel between many of these islands was only possible by boat. A modern pioneer, Henry Morrison Flagler, claims responsibility for providing the first civilized access to the Keys. He dreamed of extending the Florida East Coast Railway from Homestead to Key West. His dream was realized in 1912, after years of extreme physical hardship for the engineers and laborers who designed and built it. 

After the 1935 Labor Day hurricane destroyed the railroad, it was replaced by the Overseas Highway in 1938. The highway has since been widened and modernized. More than 40 bridges now connect these islands, like a Caribbean necklace, for more than 126 miles.

FAR OFF THE BEATEN PATH! BUT WORLD FAMOUS!

We heard so much about it and then we finally FOUND it!  Slip in, grab a flimsy chair right on the water, soak up the country tunes and marshy sound views and ORDER the CONCH FRITTERS!

Enough Said.
