‘The Keys’ is a group of islands – an ‘archipelago’ – in Florida, USA. But why does it have this name? Well, the Spanish called it “Cayos” meaning “Small Islands” – and this name sounded like “Keys” to Americans.
The architecture in Florida Keys, main island in Key West, is peculiar. There aren’t big buildings, the houses and restaurants have a simple structure and the beach is just beautiful.
Yes, it’s true: traveling from Miami to Key West takes some hours. But don’t give up: after driving through many bridges you will arrive at the last Key and eat great food !
