Key West

Key in to the Best of Key West

Closer to Cuba than to Miami, Key West is a true subtropical paradise. Inviting weather, cultural diversity, and a storied past make the island city a must-visit, no matter the season. Here are a few of our favorite ways to experience it all.

Retrace the steps of Hemingway.

Get a first-hand look at where iconic American author lived and worked by visiting the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum. The relatively modest, two-story house was home to Hemingway from 1931 to 1939, today offering tours of it’s rooms, gardens, and more than forty felines.

Die-hards can also celebrate Papa every summer at the Annual Hemingway Days. The fun includes look-alike contests, readings and book signings, memorabilia, a three-day and more, over the course of a week every July.

Feel presidential.

History buffs will also get a kick out of the Harry S. Truman Little White House. The unusual historic site was where the former POTUS spent his winters from from 1946 to 1952, and tours of the residence are available.

Celebrate the sunset.

Held nightly at Mallory Square, the Mallory Square Sunset Celebration has grown to become one of the most popular attractions in Key West. The festivities include everything from magicians, jugglers, and clowns to psychics, local musicians, artists, and food vendors. It's a potpourri of culture – all in celebration of Key West's unmatched sunsets.

Travel back in time.

The Key West Shipwreck Museum isn't far from Mallory Square. There history buffs will find actors, films and actual artifacts to tell the story of 400 years of shipwreck salvage in the Florida Keys.

Stay there.

There's plenty more for history buffs to delve into on Key West. Near the southern tip of the island, Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park is a preserved Civil War-era fort. Check out displays, monuments, and more – there are even occasional recreations and living history interpretations.

Touch America's southern tip.

Get a sense of just how far south you are on your Key West visit by touching the Southernmost Point Buoy. Located just the the southwest of South Beach, it's an anchored concrete buoy representing the southernmost point in the Continental United States.

Get in touch with nature.

The Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory is an ideal stop for nature lovers. There you can view anywhere from 50 to 60 different live butterfly species as well as an ever-growing number of tropical birds. A visit to the Conservatory is an encounter like no other – a truly unique opportunity to walk with butterflies and birds in a lush, tropical setting.
