Key West, Florida: Dazzling Sunsets, Six-Toed Cats, and Cuban Culture
Located just off Florida's southernmost tip, the island of Key West is undoubtedly the most famous of the Florida Keys. Frommer's calls it "the land of the eternal vacation." Most tourists come to the beaches to snorkel, surf, or fish—you can catch sailfish and barracuda near Garrison Bight Marina.
At nighttime, locals and visitors alike converge on the Mallory Square Dock to watch the sun dip below the gulf, casting swaths of deep orange and pink against the horizon. The spectacle is so breathtaking that it inspires a sunset celebration each night. The dock comes to life with traveling psychics, one-man bands, and food vendors serving fresh-squeezed lemonade and conch fritters.
The island’s proximity to Cuba is reflected in many of the restaurants, where you can enjoy authentic Caribbean fare such as coconut shrimp and plantain chips. And no trip to Key West is complete without a visit to the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum, where the author lived, worked, and kept his six-toed cats. More than 50 descendants of those famous felines still prowl the grounds of the museum to this day.
