The monument is right nest to the road and it is nice to stop and pay your respects. If the traffic is light it is well worth it, but during peak hours getting back into traffic is frustrating.

Not a big monument, but historically important to the Keys. Informative, you would be glad it see it and read the history. The Keys aren't just Sunshine and beer.

While biking around Islamorada my wife and I stopped at this monument in memory of Islanders that have lost their lives from hurricanes. There are benches for meditation, a ceramic map depicting the Key West Islands and a small place where people have left momentos.

We saw this after visiting the museum just beside the Islander Resort. It was very moving and humbling to be able to visit this with deep appreciation for that terrible and sad time in Islamorada's history.

We had passed this several times but not until we visited Windley Key State Park did we realize what it was. Make a quick stop and read the placards available there to get a history lesson.
