Key West is a four by two mile island, 159 miles southwest of Miami, 90 miles north of Cuba and 755 miles further south than Los Angeles. Both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico border Key West, lending to wonderful soothing tropical breezes.
While visiting the island, enjoy fabulous restaurants, bistros, museums, theater, clubs, shopping, touring, beaches, and of course, “Sunset at Mallory Square”. Stroll down world famous Duval Street and savor a cocktail at Sloppy Joe’s, a favorite Hemingway haunt, or take a ride around the island on a bike or moped and view the local architecture. A brightly painted concrete buoy overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and situated on the corner of South and Whitehead Streets marks the southernmost point of the continental United States. It is one of the most visited and photographed attractions on our island.
Don’t forget about our offshore attractions which include fishing, diving, sailing, eco-friendly water trips or just sitting on a sandbar with lunch and a beverage or dinner on a sunset cruise. Come down and experience our laid back island lifestyle; we know when you go home you will take a little of Key West with you.
