When you think of the Florida Keys, you think of little tropical islands. As soon as you get to the Keys, you feel peaceful and move at a slower pace. It just happens. From Key Largo to Islamorada to Marathon down to Big Pine Key and finally, Key West you see one beautiful sight after another. It might be the gorgeous colors of the water - Atlantic or Gulf. It could be a restaurant on the water with beautiful tropical foliage. Maybe a stunning beach or place to stay. Beauty all around!
