Florida and the Gulf Coast

This section contains our stories about the Florida Keys, America’s mythical Margaritaville. Miraculously, a 60-year-old building boom has failed to ruin the Keys, which continue to exude a funky charm and fin du terre feel. Skinny waters here run from azure to emerald, and the authorities have seen fit to classify the entire region as a no-discharge zone, forbidding even the use of waste treatment systems.
