The City The guide was updated:A long vacation should be considered when visiting Key West, since there is much to do here.
Enjoy acres of spectacular beaches with powdery white sand and immerse yourself in the colorful flora. Swim with dolphins, shred frosty Atlantic Ocean waves by surfing, and immerse yourself in the perpetual warm waters by snorkeling or swimming. The endless activities will keep you entertained from morning till dusk with jet skiing, and Ferry trips to the Dry Tortuga National Park.
A maritime location, Key West also offers you a historic seaport at Old Town Key West, with museums and historical knowledge. Visit President Harry Truman’s Little White House which, now a museum, has represented his premier summer residence. For literature lovers, escape into the enigmatic book world of famous author Ernest Hemingway at his once official Key West vacation spot.
Join in the multi-ethnic restaurant experience and indulge both in delicious creations and in making friends with the locals. One shouldn't leave without visiting Key West’s prominent, larger than life buoy marker which claims the position of the Southernmost Point Marker in the Continental US, being only 90 miles away from Cuba.
