The house down on Whitehead Street is one of those places that I wouldn't say go to, but then again I wouldn't say dont. You are in Key West, and this is the number one tourist attraction down here. But if you aren't an avid reader of Ernest, then a lot of it is interesting more than fascinating. The guides are eager to answer any questions that you have during the 45 minute tour, and do their best to wax lyrical about Mr Hemingway, but at the end of the day he was a writer, who liked a drink and was a bit of a boy. One of the fascinating things however, is the amount of polydactyl cats that are hanging around the place. These are six toed cats that many of them descend directly from a cat called snowball that was given to Ernest by a visiting sea captain. So yes, go and see it, but remember that this is just a house where someone did some of his best writing.
