As the southernmost city in the United States, it’s easy to assume Key West is the end of the road. But for more than a century, it’s also been home to many, many wonderful beginnings. Whether you drive or fly into Key West, one thing’s for sure: there’s simply no place else quite like it. An eclectic island city of Palm-lined streets boasting Victorian homes, gingerbread conch houses, and mansions on the National Register.
John Audubon and Ernest Hemingway lived here. One had a passion for preservation. The other, a great zest for living. And that combination gives Key West its unique personality. The moment you set foot on world-famous Duval Street, in Old Town Key West, you do more than feel the ambiance…you become a part of it.
Sure, Key West is dive shops and charter boats and glorious sunsets. But it’s also a Bahamian Village. Historic forts. Lighthouses. Theaters. Museums. Galleries. Festivals. Markets. Sidewalk cafes. Legendary pubs. Even Truman’s little White House.
