Key West. Close to Perfect. Far From Normal.

Whether you drive or fly into Key West, one thing’s for sure: there’s simply no place quite like it. An island city of palm-lined streets boasting Victorian homes, gingerbread conch houses and mansions on the National Register.

John Audubon and Ernest Hemingway lived here. One had a passion for preservation. The other, a great zest for living. And that combination gives Key West its unique personality. The moment you get on world-famous Duval Street, in Old Town Key West, you do more than feel the ambiance. You become a part of it.

Sure, Key West is drive shops and charter boats. And glorious sunsets. But it’s also a Bahamian Village. Historic Forts. Lighthouses. Theaters. Museums. Galleries. Festivals. Markets. Sidewalk cafes. Legendary pubs. Even Truman’s Little Whitehouse.

You don’t need a car. Tour the city on foot or by trolley. Mingle with some of the world’s most fun-loving characters. And find some of the best-made cigars and aloe products anywhere.

Key West is unique. And unspoiled. A feast for your heart and your soul. In short, if you’re planning on visiting Key West, plan on staying longer than anticipated.
