At the Southernmost tip of the United States, just 90 miles from Cuba, is the quirky, artsy Island of Key West. Set amongst crystal blue waters, the picturesque town is full of historic inns, local boutiques, rustic oceanside seafood restaurants and bars on every corner.
Juan Ponce de Leon officially discovered the town in 1521, and it became a U.S. territory in 1821. During the 1800's, Key West was a great shipping port, exporting sponges, salt and turtle meat.
In 1912, Henry Flagler extended the Overseas Railroad to Key West, and Key West was officially “discovered.” By 1926, Pan American Airlines was founded to fly visitors to Havana, Cuba, and tourism was in full swing. U.S. Presidents, writers, and artists, such as Harry Truman, Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway, flocked to Key West to enjoy the warm weather and the relaxed island lifestyle.
In the 1930s, Ernest Hemingway lived in town where he wrote Islands in the Stream. Today, one can visit Hemingway’s home and a host of other historic places. Plus, enjoy ocean adventures, strolling the winding streets and the famous Key Lime pie.
