* Highway 1, also called the Overseas Highway, is the only road connecting all the islands
together and connecting the islands to the mainland. Because everything is either to the
right or to the left of the Highway, we call one side 'Oceanside' and the other 'Bayside' or
'Gulf side' with the exception of the island of Key West because it is at the end of the string
of islands. Most of the time when we describe where something is, we say Mile Marker
and the number. Mile Marker 0 ends the numbering and is in Key West.
We also break the Florida Keys into three main sections - the Upper Keys, the Middle Keys
and the Lower Keys. The Upper Keys is from MM 108 to 65 and is where Key Largo,
Tavernier, and Islamorada (the "Village of Islands") are located. The Middle Keys is from
MM 64 to MM 40 and includes the city of Marathon and the 7-mile bridge. Then the Lower
Keys is from MM 40 to 0 and includes Bahia Honda, Big Pine Key, Key West and a few
Keys in between like Little Torch Key, Ramrod Key, Cudjoe Key and Summerland Key.
Here is a complete list of the Keys that make up each area. For more information about the
Florida Keys visit our "About the Florida Keys" page.
Florida Keys Accommodations
Whether you're on a tight budget or the sky's the limit - whether you just need a
place to sleep or a romantic full service hotel or resort, you'll find it in the Florida
Keys. You'll find several major motel and hotel chains in the Florida Keys but if
you want to really experience the Keys, try staying at one of our unique, one of a
kind hotels and motels owned and operated by Florida Keys locals. Some have
private sandy beaches or pools and some hotels and motels even offer their
own water sports activities such as sea kayaks, water skiing, tube rides, wake
boarding and paddleboats.
Pamper yourself and relax at one of our many Florida Keys resorts. Florida Keys
resorts range from luxury and elegance on your very own private island to exotic
resorts with fully equipped kitchens for those who prefer a more ‘homey’ stay.
Accommodations in the Marathon area are mostly resorts, hotels and motels
with very few B & B's. Usually hotels and motels are a bit cheaper here than in
the rest of the Florida Keys and many are waterfront. Key West is about an hour
and a half away from Marathon, the drive is spectacular and there are many sites
to see between Marathon and Key West. So, if you have a car and like
adventure, you may want to think about staying in or around Marathon.
Key West Accommodations
Key West is a city that is very proud of its diversity. In Key West, you will find many
gay and gay friendly accommodations (mostly Bed and Breakfast, Inns and
Guest houses) and some are exclusively male or exclusively female. Some are
also clothing optional resorts. So, we highly recommend researching our
properties before deciding where you want to stay. Whether you’re looking for a
family retreat, a romantic couples getaway or a place to meet other gay or
lesbian singles, Key West offers many hotels, motels, resorts and inns to
Key West Bed & Breakfast and Guest Houses
Key West’s charming and quaint B&B’s and guest houses are usually restored
100+ year old Victorian style homes with lushly landscaped grounds, high
ceilings, picket fences, wood shutters and wrap-around porches and are located
in the center of Key West’s Historic Preservation District. There are some B&B’s
and guest houses that are even listed on the National Register of Historic
Places. Ask the host at the B & B that you decide to stay in for the history of the
home and get ready for a true and fascinating recollection of some of Key West’s
Some guest houses are decorated with original art work by local Keys artists
while others are decorated with antiques from the era in which the home was
built. And some offer your choice of either traditional antique furnishings or
tropical Caribbean style furnishings. Most of the Key West Bed and Breakfast’s
and Inns are located in Old Town within walking distance of world famous Duval
Street and Mallory Square.
