READY. SET. GO RVING! LET’S GET STARTED FROM KEY WEST, FLORIDA

The first week of our journey from Key West to Alaska has gone wonderfully well. Of course, how could a week in the Florida Keys not be wonderful? Especially when your RV is parked right on the Gulf of Mexico.

The Keys are a chain of islands off the tip of the coast of Florida. There are 1,700 islands total with only 43 being accessible by car. These 43 islands are connected by a 127 mile long highway, the Overseas Highway. It’s a fairly easy drive in an RV, and we didn’t have any problems with our 40’ fifth wheel. Although take note, if you are driving or pulling a larger rig, parking lots big enough to stop in are somewhat scarce, so you may want to plan accordingly.

The drive through the Keys is one of our favorites in the country. Crossing each bridge, you take in a stunning display of color where deep brilliant turquoise gives way to the light aquamarine of shallower waters, and then the soft tans of sandbars. The islands are filled with charm and whimsy. Small colorful beach shacks sit alongside large modern beach homes in visual harmony. You’ll find everything from small local health food stores to touristy shell shops.
