The Florida Keys are an archipelago of about 1700 islands extending south and southwest from the Florida mainland.

The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, off the coast of the Keys, includes the third-largest coral barrier reef in the world. Snorkling and diving are both popular.

Covering much of the ocean floor are beds of seagrass that are of vital importance to the coral reef ecosystem (the largest known seagrass bed in the world) as well as mangrove swamps.

Key West, at the far southwestern end of the Keys, is considered the southernmost city in the continental United States, and offers travelers a laidback atmosphere in an old fishing village.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
