Florida Keys Scenic Highway

The Florida Keys Scenic Highway is also called "Road to Paradise", because it travels through some of the Florida's most spectacular scenery. Palm trees, tropical beach huts and sandy roadsides grace the 106.5 miles of Florida Keys Scenic Highway connecting the world-famous island-hopping Florida Keys along U.S. 1 to Mile Marker 1 - the southernmost point in the continental United States.

This is the place where you can experience outstanding natural beauty, world-class diving, freat fishing, interesting festivals, the dreamiest views of crystaline waters, sunrise and sunse views, interesting state and national parks, water sports, historic sites, museums, island cuisine, unique tropical atmosphere, rich cultural heritage and friendly people that enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of the Florida Keys.

With the gentle turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the majestic Atlantic Ocean on the other, you will travel over forty-three bridges from Key Largo to Key West. The "Seven Mile Bridge," located at Mile Marker 47, is more than 35,000 feet in length. With more than 800 keys, most of them uninhabited, this drive offers breathtaking sights, so have your camera ready!

Biscayne National Park in Southern Florida is one of the largest marine parks in the National Park System with 95% of its 173,000 acres under water. The park is made up of four ecosystems: the coral reef, the mangrowe-fringed shoreline, the shallow estuary of Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys. The systems are not only dependent on one another, but each also has its own special qualities found nowhere else.

Biscayne protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. Here too is evidence of 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents. Outdoors enthusiasts can boat, snorkel, camp, watch wildlife…or simply relax in a rocking chair gazing out over the bay.
