The Florida Keys lie between the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. This buoyant string of 120 or so miniature mangrove-fringed tropical islands meanders off the southern tip of Florida, connected by the 113-mile Overseas Highway, a continuation of U.S. Route 1. The highway winds its way across the water from Key Largo to Key West. The Southernmost Point Buoy in Key West, Florida, marks the last spot of the continental United States.
