A Brief Discription
The Florida Keys are an archipelago or cluster of about 1700 islands in the extreme southeast of the United States. The Keys extend from the southeastern Florida peninsula near Miami, run south and then curve west to Key West, and out to the uninhabited Dry Tortugas.
The average temperature in the Florida Keys for January is 74 degrees. Temperatures in the daytime & nighttime differ only about 10 degrees. In fact, being surrounded on water, the Florida Keys have a very temperate climate. Much more so that the Florida mainland.
There is no known record of frost, ice, sleet, or snow. Fog is rare.
The islands lie in the Florida Straits, dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east from the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and creating Florida Bay. At the nearest point, the southern tip of Key West is just 90 miles (145 km) from Cuba.
Key Biscayne is actually attached at the north end to the mainland, and is therefore not considered part of the Keys by some Floridians. It is, however, part of the same geological formation, atop which sits coral rock islands, as well as partly-submerged mangrove islands.
The city of Key West is the county seat of Monroe County, which covers mostly the Everglades on the mainland, and all of the islands from Key Largo south and west.
Islamorada, "Village of Islands" is a village located in Monroe County, Florida and is part of the chain of islands know as "the Upper Florida Keys". Within this chain, Islamorada encompasses: Plantation Key, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, and Lower Matecumbe.
As of the 2000 census, the village had a total population of 6,846. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau is 6,772 . The name "Islamorada", meaning "purple isle", comes from early Spanish explorers in the area.
