Overview

Key West is an island city located in Monroe County, Florida. It is at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys and is nearly 210 km away from the bustling, tourist-filled Miami. The island also encompasses other islands including Sigsbee Park, Fleming Key, Sunset Key and a part of Stock Island.
Key West has a mild tropical-maritime climate, which makes it a tourist-friendly destination all year round. Average temperatures vary between 20°C–30°C. Humidity is high throughout the year, but the effects are reduced as a result of the nearby Gulf of Mexico.
The city has more than 25,000 inhabitants. Apart from tourism, the military and government (State and local) aid the economy of the city. The city used to be the home of the legendary poet Ernest Hemingway.

Overall Guide : Key West has plenty of attractions to keep you occupied. An evening walk will take you to the Sunset Celebration which happens daily at Mallory Square. Climb aboard the bright yellow Conch Tour Train, popular among tourists. Another quaint train... more ride is the Old Town Trolley, which allows you to disembark at 10 different tourist attractions and then re-board for the ride ahead. Head over to the Southernmost House & Museum, which is a beautiful ocean-facing mansion designed in true Queen Anne Victorian style. The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum treats you to a display of gold treasure recovered from shipwrecks. Equally fascinating is the artistic Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden (which resembles a lush rainforest) and the 1847 Key West Lighthouse (housing an in-house museum). Key West has festivals almost every month, the most popular being the Acura International Boat Regatta in January and the Fantasy Fest somewhere near Halloween.

Overall Guide : It's paradise. When I'm there, it makes me feel as if I'm a million miles away from home. I love Key West, the natural atmosphere who makes me wanna enjoy the sea and every single attractions. Weather is marvellous, always... more hot and very very pleasurable, and I can't miss all the fun the city offers.

Overall Guide : If I were a tourist I would not come anywhere near Key West due to all the road costruction which will take a lot longer than 2 years at the rate their going. Even the local people that live here... more are feed up with it already. All you see are torn up roads, baracades, and detour signs everywhere.
Not to be missed boat races
