Key West

Community Key West

Key West is the southernmost of the Florida Keys, located closer to Cuba than to Miami, and is the southernmost city in the continental United States. Key West is a unique union of history, natural beauty, romance, cultural diversity, architecture and climate.


The Bahamian and Cuban heritage inspired by commercial fisherman, Bahamian wreckers, spongers and Cuban cigar makers can be seen in the architecture of the many mansions and conch houses nestled among the palm tree lined streets. These homes were also host to many famous people, such as Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Frost and Jimmy Buffet, who found inspiration in the subtropical paradise.

In Key West, you can visit many historic attractions by convenient public transportation, taxis, pedi-cabs, tour trains, trolleys, bicycles or even your own two feet. Residents and visitors enjoy gazing at the centuries-old treasure of Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de Atocha, discovering modern art treasures by Key West’s artists among dozens of galleries, and window shopping while strolling along Duval Street. Life in Key West is not complete unless participating in the many activities including diving, fishing, water sports, golf and the sunset celebration held each evening at Mallory Square. In the evening, streets are filled with sidewalk cafes, open-air bars, legendary pubs and world-class restaurants with island specialties, while drama, musicals and comedies flourish on local stages.
