The Florida Keys: Maritime Escape on the Overseas Highway
Islamorada is located in the upper portion of the Florida Keys, southwest of Key Largo. It's a quiet, laid-back place that typifies the Keys lifestyle; many people visit just to bask in the sun. You can also go from snorkeling with dolphins at one marina to kayaking with paddle-wielding manatees at the next. Most restaurants offer beach or patio seating for a nice view of the sunset.
The historic Overseas Highway was once a railroad connecting the Keys; after it was hit by a hurricane in 1935, it became a thoroughfare for motorists to drive right along the water. At Bahia Honda State Park, there's a bridge that commemorates the old railway.
