The self-proclaimed "Conch Republic" is one of Florida's most unique and colorful escapes, with a long and fascinating history to match. Here's where to eat, drink, play, and stay in the land of Buffett and Hemingway.
Every day slips into the shadows with a celebration of sunset as only Key West can do it. Jugglers, tightrope walkers, fire-eaters, and craftspeople gather each evening on the dock at Mallory Square. This is your chance to pick up a hibiscus-patterned collar for Fifi, an agate-and-shell nightlight, or playful Island Time yard sign as you watch the sun slide into the sea. Can you catch the storied "green flash" that occurs right when the sun dips below the horizon? It's a Key West tradition to try.
