The sunshine city of the sunshine state
Beautifully positioned in the Straits of Florida, the island of Key West is the United States’ southernmost point, located just 90 miles from Cuba. It’s one of the sunniest cities in the country with a "just right" year-round tropical climate—neither too hot nor too cold—and at only four miles long by two miles wide, Key West is filled with beaches, historic sights, international restaurants, and a very lively nightlife.
Meander down Duval Street for its energetic strips of cafés, shops, and bars, or take a walking tour to see some of the island’s best architecture, courtyards, and gardens. Dive or snorkel in the coral reefs and wrecks off Key West, or simply stroll in the footsteps of such famous citizens Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and Thomas Edison, who all called Key West home at one point in their storied lives.
