travel guide to florida keys and key west 
Sun, sea, palm trees, sunsets... and turtles! Recently we got to visit a place that has been on our travel bucket list -- The Florida Keys & Key West! Did you know that the subtropical Florida Keys are made up of lots of islands? Some 1,700 in fact! More than 40 are connected by bridges allowing you to journey from Miami down the Florida Overseas Highway (US Route 1) to Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine Key and the Lower Keys, and finally to Key West. The drive is one of America’s most iconic road trips and not to be missed!

We love that the Florida Keys are focusing on sustainability with their 'Connect and Protect' campaign and encouraging visitors to have a lesser impact on the natural environment when visiting. From eco-friendly tours, to wearing reef-friendly sunscreen and stopping by the Coral Restoration Foundation to learn about coral reef preservation and protection efforts; there's lots we can do to help embrace this initiative. Also, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary will be marking its 30th anniversary in 2020. The sanctuary comprises 2,900 square nautical miles of coastal waters around the Keys, stretching from Key Largo south to the Dry Tortugas National Park – it’s a great destination for diving and snorkeling. Fun fact: the Florida Keys is home to the continental USA’s only living coral barrier reef.

Key West is known as a very LGBTQ+ friendly place and 2020 also marks the 20th anniversary of the destination’s ‘One Human Family’ motto. We couldn't wait to explore all that the Keys has to offer, and to sample all the Key lime pies. 

This trip is a paid partnership with the Florida Keys & Key West and their partners who kindly hosted us. All views are our own.
