    Best little island town in the United States! Before the days of the bridges through the Keys, Key West (or Cayo Hueso) lived in perpetual isolation. It eventually evolved into an odd hodgepodge of fishermen, artists, writers and people in hiding or who just wanted to disappear. Charming, tropical and magical, it's now a play land for adults and what a fun one it is!

    Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, great fishing, snorkeling, diving, only 4 hrs. south of the Cape via Hwy. 41 to US 1 (depending on traffic and time of year). Go through Everglades Natl. Park on the way there and view an incredible amount of wildlife. Wonderful weekend trip!! Make reservations way in advance!! Take your bicycles.

    Can't come down to the keys without taking a day trip to Key West! Take a trolley tour if you don't have much time to explore & learn about the history and take in the beautiful historical architecture.

    Key West is always fascinating. It is so alive but at the same time relaxing. There are also some interesting spots to visit- hamingway house, a botanical garden... At night it is really alive. You colud rent a bike and ride here and there ! Great.

    A great place to unwind and chill out for a few days. Hire a moped for the day, we did and had great fun.

    50 to 60 minutes from Marathon and Seaglass. Pleasant drive with a lot to see,
    and a lot to get to know on the way.

    One and a half hours from the house by car. This is a wonderful day trip. Walk up Duval Street, buy a souvenir, or sit at a bar for a cool beer and people watching.

    Beautiful waters, skies, and very casual atmosphere. There's plenty to walk around and explore, and the beaches are marvelous. Definitely a "spring break" kind of place to visit with friends if searching for a place that screams "casual sun".

    Dranked where Hemmingway dranked. TONS of bars and probably resturants too (too busy drinking). LOTS of history. Lots of CREEPY scary history. If I wasn't lazy, I would probably review the Ghost Tour. Maybe another day. Worth doing.

    So - I was here many years ago and went back recently - It is not known for the beaches, though there are a few small ones. The nightlife, restaurants and Mallory Square sunset watching are the big attractions. Also, diving snorkeling, wave running and other water sports. But it's a nice place to just hang out and relax.

    Quirky, international (visitors come from all over the world), with a feeling of remoteness and some of the best sunsets I've ever seen anywhere.

    i really don't have any one hotel to tell you about it depends on what kind of experience you want ? there is one hotel down there its a haunted hotel where strange things happen. the crown plaza LA concha hotel the foods there was good. there was so much to do there like walking the zero mile to the marker that tells you that Cuba is 90 miles away and going to some of the sights where kind of over rated like Hemingway's house is across the street from a bodaga. but you can rent these really fancy golf carts that look like antique cars feed the fish at the pier the key lime soda was great it gets hot as hell down there.visit the old forts and if you drive there don't park at a meter go to some of the side street lots and look for the signs to see witch business to go to and pay for parking for the day you don't have to worry about being towed if you park at a meter you will be towed. if you walk down the street from the zero mile marker all the great bars and clubs are on the rite side of the street with all the touristy things to do. also important if you want really great food ask the bar tenders and locals and that goes for conch fritters if you go to the keys you have to try them and some of the places are not fritter friendly they are bad only a very few places make them good

    One of my absolute favorite places to go - laid back vibe, great food, interesting people. Have been over 30 times and find something new with each successive trip.

Description

The southernmost city in the United States, Key West is truly a Caribbean paradise. Situated on a spit of land off of the southern tip of Florida, Key West is all about sun, fun, and the beach-even the ride to Key West over the ocean from Florida is quite the scenic journey. Highway 1 becomes an official Overseas Highway as it extends out for miles into the gulf towards Key West Island. The Key ... read more
West shopping scene is much mellower than in Miami. There are certainly shops selling the local (somewhat flashy) clothing, just don’t expect to part with as much cash for your tracksuit as you might on the mainland. The waters surrounding Key West are frequented by fishing charters, sunset cruises, and parasailing opportunities for the adventurous crowd that frequents this location. The adventurous spirit of youth is definitely in the air-college students flock to Key West yearly during Spring Break. Whether or not this is your game, after a few nights of parties consider hitting your brain’s “refresh” button by stopping at one of the many natural discovery museums or nature preserves that can be found near Key West. The unique environment present on this isolated little strip of excitement is great for both the young and the young at heart.
