Most visitors to Miami are determined not to miss out on experiencing the end of the United States - Key West, the last in a string of nearly 400 islands that extend from the tip of mainland Florida into the blue-green Atlantic Ocean, and the southernmost point of the US that has become one of the state’s busiest tourist destinations.
The road that connects Key West with the mainland is one of the most famous in America. Known as The Overseas Highway (US1) it links Miami with the Florida Keys islands, crossing about 30 of them via a series of bridges and causeways.
Key West, 159 miles (256km) southwest of Miami, is literally the end of the road. The drive through the Keys offers some spectacular scenery and all the populated islands and resorts en route offer great watersports opportunities.
Good beaches are rare, but the Coral Coast offers some excellent snorkelling, diving and fishing. Key West itself is a charming city with plenty of historic interest, palm-lined streets, gingerbread mansions and tin-roofed conch houses. It is a favoured haunt of artists and writers, having in its time been home to such greats as Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Edison, Harry Truman and Tennessee Williams.
