My Favorite Place To Visit

Crystal Clear Snokeling

Key West is both a place and a state of mind. It lies about as far away as you can go in this USA, almost part of the tropics, some four hours and 150 miles south and west of Miami. You cross a lot of bridges and spectacular blue and green water to get there, and when you get there you’re only 90 miles from Cuba. Despite its small size, the island, as well as, the town Key West is so fascinating that we often don’t know where to start. With warm weather year round, and an average temperature of 77º, very little rainfall and no snow, any time of the year is perfect for a vacation on this very special island. 

There is much to do and see in Key West and it can be hard to chose from the great variety of land and water activities. Beaches, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, and fishing are among our favorites. And in between water adventures, we enjoy the many land attractions such as historical sites, the aquarium, museums, and lots of great shopping and dining.  One of our favorite things to do is watch sunsets from Mallory Square on the harbor, or from the bars and restaurants on the boat basins. Since nobody knows how to throw a party like Key West does, you can join in at Fantasy Fest (think Mardi Gras) at the end of October, and see for yourself, why Key West is Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. We also tend to spend a fair amount of time in the many bars and clubs on the island. You usually can find the music and atmosphere that you are  looking for.  It seems you can walk everywhere, but a bicycle or moped works a little better when you head to the east end of the island.

Accommodations on the island offers everything from budget bed and breakfasts  to luxury hotels and resorts. Key West also prides itself in its distinct cuisine and refreshing drinks that are available on every corner. There is nothing formal about the city. You can dress casually even in upscale restaurants and leave the formal clothes at home for a fun and carefree vacation. 
 It offers something for everyone. mainly an opportunity to relax, enjoy, and pamper yourself under the tropical sun. Key West is delightful all day and appropriately ends with the gorgeous sunset that is celebrated every evening on Mallory Square by locals and guests. 

If you go to Key West, you will discover an active and fun city life, beautiful nature, lots of history and culture. You can relax, have fun, go on a few adventures and take a break from daily life.  Start planning your Key West vacation now and visit a place that represents adventure and serenity, beauty and fascination, and diversity and tolerance. Everyone is welcome here.
Hemingway loved it. "It’s the best place I’ve ever been anytime, anywhere, flowers, tamarind trees, guava trees, coconut palms...Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks."
