Like a chain of pearls, the Florida Keys stretch 150 miles southwest from extreme southern Florida, separating the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. Comprised of more than 400 islands, the Keys have attracted visitors for many decades, most notably writers, artists, fishermen, and free-spirited folks searching for perennial sunshine and peaceful waters.
Honeymooners are also taking notice of this beautiful and diverse region. With numerous outdoor activities (distinguished by a vibrant underwater ecosystem), a variety of resort offerings, and exciting sights and attractions, all in a tropical setting, newlyweds can experience the honeymoon of their dreams without ever leaving the country.
From Carnivals to Craft Beer in Key West
With its party atmosphere, laid-back vibe, and seemingly endless attractions, Key West is often the feature destination for newlyweds when visiting the Keys.
First, get your shopping fix along Duval and Greene Streets before making your way north towards Mallory Square. The popular waterfront area is one of the city’s main focal points and a top spot for people watching. Be sure to go a few hours before sunset (however, beware when cruise ships are in port) and take in the carnival-like atmosphere, complete with street performers, live music, local crafts, and fresh food.
