The Florida Keys have long constituted one of my favorite regions in America. Always warm, often sunny, and virtually isolated, they comprise a world all their own. So, perhaps it’s no wonder that, as the days get colder and drearier in northern Michigan, I have Key West on the brain. Palm trees, banana leaves, Victorian inns, Caribbean bungalows, fresh seafood, French crepes, Hemingway haunts, lively annual events, and snorkeling opportunities galore – yeah, it’s safe to say that I adore that crazy little island.
In fact, I felt so inspired today that I even featured Key West cuisine on my American Nomad blog. Check it out if you have a chance.
And then riddle me this: Do you like islands? If so, do you have a favorite one?
