Unlock the Florida Keys on a FL Bus Charter
Life’s a Beach on a Key West Bus Rental
Spanning some 110 miles south of Miami toward Cuba, the Florida Keys offer visitors the perfect escape – a tropical vacation without leaving the U.S. Each island is a unique destination from the sunken wrecks off the coast of Key Largo to the vacation resorts of Marathon to the bars along Key West’s Duval Street, where the author Ernest Hemingway caroused with his companions.
The islands are as “laid back” as it gets with flip flops the preferred footwear. Laze the days away on sandy beaches and gaze on amazing sunsets. Enjoy a marvelous array of fish while snorkeling, diving or fishing in the warm turquoise waters. The view from Highway 1, the spectacular ribbon of highways and bridges that connect the islands, is not to be missed.

Beaches, Boats & Bars
Few places are as laid back as the Florida Keys. The cultural offerings are few but beaches, boats and bars make for a great escape for anyone looking for a tropical getaway. Below is a rundown of the best beaches and points of interest worth a visit during your travel through the region.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks —Nighttime entertainments in the Florida Keys tend to run towards bar hopping. Duval Street in Key West has abundance of nightclubs and bars where visitors can drink and dance the night away. One of the most famous, Sloppy Joe’s was a favorite hangout of Ernest Hemmingway. Downtown Key Largo encompasses one square mile of bars, cafes and restaurants where visitors can enjoy a quiet night on the town.
- Restaurants & Shopping — In a place where cutoffs and a plastic daisy on your flip-flops counts as high fashion, don’t expect to find exceptional retail opportunities. Folks don’t come to the Florida Keys to shop. On and around Duval Street in Key West, the shops tend towards t-shirts and shot glasses although there are a few specialty shops offering interesting wares. As for the restaurants, it’s all about seafood and Key Lime Pie.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues —There are golf courses in the Florida Keys, but they are few and far between and they are mostly scrunched in amidst mangrove swamps, palm trees and the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Gulf of Mexico on the other. One of the few public courses, Key West Gold Club encompasses more than 200 acres of beautiful Florida Keys foliage and wildlife.
- Historic Sites & Landmarks — The view from the Overseas Highway is stunning. But it’s not the only site worth a look on your travels through the islands. In Key West, take a photo standing next to the colorful landmark buoy that marks the southernmost spot in the continental United States, stroll along the historic seaport or tour Fort Zachary Taylor. Among the many historic homes scattered about the islands, the Ernest Hemmingway Home, located in Key West, is the by far the most noteworthy. Don’t miss the famed six-toed cats that live on the grounds.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — Put down the margarita glass and hit the beach. There’s no shortage of options for visitors looking to sunbath and swim. Bring plenty of sunscreen. Looking for something that requires a bit more energy? Go diving off Key Largo, home of the only living coral reef in the continental United States. There's no place you can't fish in the Keys, but Islamorada, Marathon and Key West are where the charter boats conglomerate. Bahia Honda State Park and Beach offers some of the best snorkeling and beachcombing in Florida. Enjoy shallow water wind surfing at Curry Hammock State Park.
- Zoos & Aquariums — Snorkeling and scuba diving isn’t the only way to get a close up look at the local marine life. The Key West Aquarium showcases more than 100 species of fish, turtles, sharks and birds. It features a Touch Tank where you can pick up amazing animals. In Marathon, the Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters stands as the country’s first totally interactive aquarium with chances to feed and swim with sharks, stingrays and other tropical fish.
- Other Points of Interest — Key West City Cemetery offers a glimpse of Key West's past and its offbeat sense of humor, as exhibited by gravestones that read, "I told you I was sick," and "At least I know where he's sleeping tonight." Also not to be missed, Florida’s only presidential museum, the Harry S Truman Little White House, was the winter White House for this country's 33rd president.
