Key comes from the Spanish word “cayo,” and it means reef or low island. There are l700 hundred of them in the Florida Keys. Among the largest are Key Largo, Key West (also known as the Conch Republic, which threatened secession in l982, “we secede where other people fail”), Plantation, Lower Matecumbe, Upper Matecumbe, and Sugarloaf. Driving down Route 1 from Miami, along the Everglades National Park, you know you’re in the Keys when you start to see signs advertising “Bait.”
