Keep your summer adventure going in the Florida Keys
The indomitable heart of Islamorada, Florida
ORIGINALLY SETTLED BY intrepid farmers, this quartet of coral islands in Florida’s Upper Keys pivoted away from agriculture and into tourism after Henry Flagler completed his Overseas Railroad through them in 1912. Stepping off that railroad platform were fishing-keen U.S. Presidents, writers, and movie stars, who generated a buzz around Islamorada as a luxurious sporting paradise. After devastating storms— the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 and Hurricane Irma in 2017—savaged Islamorada, its residents stood fast and rebuilt. This year, with the postIrma reopening of The Moorings Village and now the historic Cheeca Lodge & Spa, Islamorada calls once again with its blue waters and the thrill of the catch.
