When Jimmy Buffett sings about "Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude" in the Florida Keys, he has things absolutely right. The Florida Keys are casual, relaxed, and dedicated to preserving their laid-back nature. Leave your neckties and high heels at home. Business as usual in the Keys means "No jacket required". The Florida Keys stretch some 200 sun-drenched miles from
Biscayne Bay to the Dry Tortugas, encompassing innumerable islands, reefs,
lakes, bays, and beaches.
The largest of the Florida Keys is the first Key - Key Largo. The most famous of the Florida Keys is Key West - the last Key in the string of islands. The Florida Keys are linked by 42 bridges scattered along the 126-mile Overseas Highway. Businesses and residents refer to where you are in the Florida Keys by the Mile Marker - the green and white markers along the highway. The Florida Keys environment ranges from the fragility of America's only living coral reefs to the seemingly impenetrable mangrove fortresses of the back country. Crystal-clear aqua-marine waters beckon you to explore their living tapestry of undersea life. In the Florida Keys, life focuses on the water.
