When traveling to the southernmost point in the United States, it’s important to remember that things are likely to get a little exciting. After all, the weather is gorgeous and everything is at your fingertips. Incredible water sports, vibrant nightlife, fascinating historical sites, and charming pastel-colored architecture create a vibe like no other. Duval Street is one lively lane of restaurants, bars, and boutiques. Stop by Sloppy Joe’s, one of Ernest Hemingway’s favorites before taking a tour of his tropical plantation-style home that is still inhabited by friendly six-toed cats. Imagine the writer sitting at his large wooden desk, watching palm trees sway in the breeze while petting one of his many fluffy felines. We think walking tours are the most authentic way to experience the island’s stunning homes, gardens, and courtyards. Test the waters and book a ghost tour if you are feeling spontaneous. Key West is characterized by quirky personas and an intriguing, peppered past. There is even a tombstone in Key West City Cemetery that jokes, “At least I know where he’s sleeping tonight.” This type of laid-back humor is what keeps visitors coming back year after year. Get into an island state of mind and surrender to the natural beauty and lively atmosphere.
