Known for its laid back atmosphere and its colorful cottages, Key West is an extremely unique tropical island city. Being able to experience a taste of Caribbean culture without having to leave the United States has guests flocking to The Keys with anticipation for the azure waters, exotic greenery and historical landmarks.

On your next visit to “Conch Republic,” roam about the island like a local and grab a drink, shop and eat on Duval Street (don’t forget to stop by Margaritaville for that Cheeseburger in Paradise!)

In addition to amazing island fare, Key West is notorious for the number of historical sites to visit: Harry S. Truman’s Little White House, The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and the Curry Mansion Inn, to name a few.

Make sure to take a trip to the end of US Route 1 at Mile Marker 0 while you’re exploring. US 1 is known locally as the Overseas Highway (2,369 mile interstate that connects most major cities in the U.S.) and stretches from Maine to Key West. This marker, along with the Southernmost Point in the US cement buoy, is perfect for photo ops to commemorate your visit to Key West.
