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.
Explore the interactive maps below to see our top picks for where to stay and what to do in every part of the Keys.
Known as the diving capital of the world, Key Largo has plenty of nearby coral reefs to explore—not to mention wedding-worthy venues. There's also endless water activities, sunset-facing hotels, and of course, tons of freshly caught seafood.
Unwind and unplug in Islamorada, the sportfishing capital of the world. Reel in big-game fish out on the ocean, or just hit the sunny beaches and temperate waters.
With its retro nautical atmosphere, friendly people, stunning beaches and abundance of water activities (from fishing to parasailing), Marathon is the place for water-loving couples.
The Lower Keys
Immerse yourself in nature in the Lower Keys, just north of Key West. Home to two national wildlife refuges, marine sanctuary and a state park, you'll be surrounded by animal habitats and untouched beaches.
Dreaming of a carefree destination with a tropical vibe? In addition to white sand beaches, there's plenty of culture on offer in Key West—from historic buildings to national parks and waterfront resorts.
