Our First Florida Keys Vacation Story

Florida Keys questions? Florida Keys stories? My husband and I had a ton of Florida Keys questions before we took our first vacation here. We also knew when we returned we'd have a lot of good Florida Keys stories. We just didn't know how wild our stories would be.

For my husband and myself, our first Florida Keys vacation was in December, 1990.

We had driven our motorhome from Western Canada, through Montana, down to Texas and then across Interstate 10.

We had traveled through blizzards, and crawled across mountainous highways covered in black ice. With our fingernails chewed off, and our fingertip impressions deeply embedded in our RV steering wheel, we waged our private war to leave the land of cold.

After many days of bad weather, then eventually somewhat reasonable weather, we finally arrived in the land of the tropics. As we traveled the Overseas Highway we couldn't have been happier as we sang along to the The Beach Boy's 'Kokomo' song.

I'll never forget our audible gasp when we first saw the incredible shades of aquamarine, turquoise, and emerald water surrounding us as we crossed the 7 Mile Bridge outside of Marathon Florida.

There was also our crazy, but delicious search for everything key lime, including the best key lime pie recipe.

The icing on our cake was our arrival at Key West. Which, as we soon found out, was not just a destination, but an absolutely unforgettable experience. If you've been, or are planning a Key West vacation, the Conch Republic is pure, dynamic energy and it demands that you come back for more.
