“American Caribbean.”  The temperate climate, beautiful foliage, and friendly people make the Keys a wonderful place to spend a few days, a few years, or a lifetime.  (The numbers at the end of each listing are the month/year that the listing was originally added and later updated.)  Please see my music video on YouTube with photos that I took in Key West.  For more Florida Keys and Key West tourist info, also see The Monroe County Tourist Development Council.
