Ernest Hemmingway Home
This is a very fun tour. Lots of interesting stories about Hemmingway's life.

And you've got to love the roosters that roam free all over the island,
providing their free wake-up service.
Beach at Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park
Key West has several good beaches, the largest being Smathers Beach along the south shore. But we love the intimate
beach at Ft. Zachary Taylor Park, on the west end of the island. Ft. Zach is about a 12 minute walk from our home.
Key West's famous sunset celebration happens each night at Mallory Square. Come for food, shopping and
the street performers, and stay to cheer the sunset.
Closer to Havana than we are to Miami, Key West is the southernmost point in the continental U.S.
A great place to have a cold one or three while the sun sets.
Key West is one of the best places in the U.S. for big game fishing. Or just do what we do, and
spend a relaxing day on the water pretending
to fish while the crew does all the work.
Rent a jet ski, go parasailing, take a cruise to the Dry Tortugas,
or join one of the many sailing or powered cruises around the island.
Old Town Key West is renowned for it's historic local architecture. You'll find plenty of "conch cottages"
all the way to glorious victorian homes. Just walk around and explore.
One of the many glorious Key West homes.
Night Life on Duval Street
Night or day, if you can't find a party on northern Duval Street, then you must already be passed out!
Home to legendary bars like Sloppy Joes, Hogs Breath, and many others.
You'll also find a great selection of reasonably-priced restaurants.
The other side of Duval Street
The southern end of Duval street is much quieter than the party end to the north. Lined with art galleries, shops, and restaurants,
it's a great place for an afternoon or evening stroll. And don't forget to visit the Butterfly museum!
