Key West is the southernmost city in the continental United States. Known as a tropical paradise, the city offers much for visitors to see and do – in the ocean and on land! Enjoy fishing, water skiing and other water sports. Go scuba diving and snorkeling to explore the coral reef off Key West, which is part of the only living barrier reef in North America. You can also take an eco-tour or sail charter to see even more of the area’s natural wonders.
Back on the shore, make your way to Duval Street, where you can find shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. For those who want to learn more about the history of the area, visit the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum. The museum features an extensive collection of shipwrecks from the 17th century. Another great stop along your trip is the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum. Located across from the Key West Lighthouse, this building was Hemingway’s local residence from 1931 to 1939. One of the unique things about this National Historic Landmark is that it is currently home to several six- and seven-toed cats who are descendants of a six-toed cat that the author was given by a ship’s captain.
The city is also home to Naval Air Station Key West, which is located east of the central business district.
