    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    The southernmost tip of the United States (okay, so we’re choosing to excuse islands such as Hawaii, but you get the point), Key West is pointedly quirky, full of the kind of characters that might be pushing the boundaries of the socially acceptable elsewhere. It’s just these kind of folks, though, that make Key West the place it is: lively, different, independent and a country mile from the American norm.

    The island was originally a land of cutthroat pirates (ship-wreckers as they were called), and lies closer to Cuba (which you may even be able to sweet talk your way over to, if you’re careful) than the mainland USA. More recently the holiday resort developers have moved in, and the condos have started popping up all over Key West, but the off-the-wall antics and lively atmosphere have suffered barely a hit.

    Aside from walking the streets looking for figures of (a whole lot of) fun, though, Key West does have a serious side. The island once suffered a hefty AIDS outbreak, and commemorates the dead through a striking, heartfelt memorial. The cemetery is haunting but features some witty one liners in memory of the dead, while the impressive Indigenous Park re-releases animals into the wild after rehabilitation of those damaged by human presence.

    You’ll probably prefer the more playful side, though, which includes ‘A Key Encounter’, a free exhibit featuring the skin of a 22ft anaconda that ate a woman down in Brazil years ago. Then there’s the Shipwreck Museum, which explores Key West’s more dangerous past, and ‘Ghosts and Legends of Key West’, another look into the town’s formidable past. Of course, it wouldn’t be Key West without the range of water sports: diving, fishing, glass bottomed boats and the once in a lifetime chance to swim with dolphins all make the most of the town’s tropical location and abundant sea life.

    Key West is a bubbly, abundant, good-natured corner of the States that many see as a holiday playground, and the mood rubs off. It’s a great place to go to have fun, a difficult place to take life too seriously and the perfect spot to pick up a tan.

    Once in Key West is not enough, you always want to go back sometime!

      • Visit the hidden paradise in Florida, Key West
        This is a hidden tropical paradise and unknown to many travelers. With its rare coral reefs, turquoise water for diving and snorkeling, its conch style houses, laid back attitude, incredible margaritas, magnificent sunsets and sunrises, moonflowers that bloom at night, this place is the perfect location for vacation. This little tropical paradise is called Key West and it is a gem in the United States. Key West is in Monroe county and it is the southernmost state.

        The Florida Keys are a string of tropical islands stretching, which is a coral cay archipelago about 120 miles off the state’s southern tip, between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The Keys were originally inhabited by the Calusa and Tequesta and in the historical days, the keys were only accessible by water, which allowed Henri Flagler to extend its railway project to Key West.
        Key West has a rich history rooted in its first developers from John Mountain to John Simonton, where the incredible faith and strategic of the island was sealed. At some point, Key West was the largest city in Florida and his isolated spot was used as the main route to Cuba and the Bahamas.

        The known laid-back vibe of Key West is an incredible destination for fishing, boating, paddling and scuba diving. One of the famous street on the island city is Duval where Victorian and Bahamian mansions can be found and also Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration both located in the old charming town of Key West. Many visitors love to spend their day on the water where they can truly enjoy the nature, hang out with the fishermen, whose love sharing their knowledge and insights of Key West and fun things to do when visiting the island. Key West is so beautiful, relaxing, full of nature, packed with incredible restaurants where authentic Spanish and Caribbean dishes are served. The area is for foodies looking for a culinary adventure, quiet seeker and nature lovers.

        Things to do

        Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory is an incredible park where you get introduced to nature and wildlife.

        The Dry Tortugas National Park is a pristine park with a wild and primitive nature. Snorkeling is the way to get familiar with the magnificent coral reef in the area and remember to visit Fort Jefferson to complete your day.

        Boat tours are memorable experiences on the turquoise waters of Key West. While on the water, you can snorkel, dive or enjoy a perfect sunset.

        The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum is a National History and Literary landmark with beautiful gardens, great architecture and peaceful surroundings. Nobel Prize Ernest Hemingway had lived and wrote many of its works in this house.

        Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum is a great spot to catch a beautiful panorama over Key West and its 88 steps to the top are worth it.

        When walking in the streets of Key West, admiring the lined palm trees, the Victorian and Bahamian mansions, it feels like the time has stopped here. Key West is gifted with a climate as you can find in the Caribbean and its tropical savanna climate has made the island the perfect destination for vacation. The best way to explore the island is by touring on a rental bicycle where you can stop to discover the many spots of the island, visit the magnificent art galleries, stop to help a family chicken to cross the street, relax at the Key West botanical Forest and Gardens, eat a typical Cuban sandwich and watch the beautiful sunset on Mallory Square. Welcome in this little paradise called Key West.
