The Keys are islands that are south of Florida and are linked by more than 20 bridges. Key West is the southernmost point of the United States and is the end of this journey that passes almost as if you were doing it through the water, because when you go down that road, not too wide, on both sides of the road you only see the sea. There are many hours by car that are worth doing because both the journey, with spectacular landscapes, and the destination, are impressive. Will you accompany me?
Closer to Cuba than Miami
Key West, or Key West, is closer to Cuba than it is to Miami. During its history this island was a refuge for fishermen and pirates, for those who were looking for treasures and also for those who were disowned from their places of origin. A walk through this place allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of Duval Street , its main street, with shops, museums and beautiful houses , its beaches and possibly one of the most photographed sites, the giant buoy that marks the southernmost point of the country , where Florida ends and the Caribbean is welcomed. With Cuba on the other side.
The walk through Key West gives us a very tropical atmosphere and even with certain bohemian airs . Perhaps inheritance, among many other things, that the writer Ernest Hemingway lived in this place. From the Mallory Square Pier it is possible to enjoy a unique sunset while several artists liven up this moment.
A journey between the sea
As I was telling you before, the road to South Florida is also something worth living. The US1 Overseas Highway runs over spectacular waters and crosses these islands offering unforgettable images. One of those that you have to contemplate with your own eyes.
To whet your appetite, here you have some photographs. Do you fancy this ride?
