Key West Vacations

Off-beat, pastel-colored and wonderfully tolerant, Key West retains its sense of humor and humility despite all odds. Perhaps its slogan, One Human Family, says it all. There’s a feeling of community here.

The area has attracted some of the most creative souls on the planet for years. Life is usually quite lively in the continental United State’s southernmost point. It’s even marked for all to see with the renowned Southernmost Point Buoy.

Overview

The Key West Aquarium is one of the biggest draws in an area that is all about the sea. Alligators, jellyfish, and sharks share the space with colorful fish and visitors from across the globe.

The Shipwreck Museum features live presentations, films, and exhibits highlighting fascinating facts of Key West history. They may have filmed “The Truman Show,” in Florida’s Panhandle way to the north of the state, but the real President Truman found his winter home in Key West, which is open to the public.

Another iconic American figure, Ernest Hemingway, wrote many of his novels in the area from 1931 to 1961. Hundreds of colorful butterflies also find their home at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservancy.

The Audubon House and Gardens features the original artwork of 19th century naturalist John James Audubon. Key West is certainly a fitting location for all those inspired by nature.
