The beauty of the Lower Keys is an attraction in itself. Lush vegetation, crystal blue water and unique wildlifeprovide a wonderland of colors and gestures. The Lower Keys rich history also provides some of this area's most famous and intriguing points of interest.
As glorious as the sun, water and sky, one cannot miss the exquisite colors produced by the lush landscape of the Lower Keys. A variety of gorgeous colors are produced by the bougainvillaea, hibiscus, orchid and frangipani. Indigenous trees such as the shade-producing mahogany, the harmful poisonwood, the aerial-rooted banyans, the peeling gumbo limbo, the delectable sea grape and the graceful mangrove enhance the landscape.
Tropical treats like Key limes, tamarinds, mangos, sapodilla, avocados, papayas and starfruit are grown here as well. The mangrove tree is one of the very substances that helped to create the fabulous Keys. This "man-like" tree grows in the shallow salt water areas of the Florida Bay or backcountry. Layers of silt and sea grass collect under their branches to eventually make a small island. There's so much to see...one visit is never enough. Click Here for for a list of what to do "on land".
