This 125-mile-long string of tropical islands is the ideal location to either host your destination wedding or escape for your honeymoon (or both!). Each area of the Keys has its own personality and focus: Explore the sportfishing capital of the world in Islamorada; sample gourmet seafood in Marathon; take a diving excursion in Key Largo; tour the cultural landmarks of Key West; or experience the natural beauty of the Lower Keys. Regardless of your interests, you're sure to find a spot that'll keep you and your guests happy.
