About Key West
Key West is an island in the Straits of Florida, at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys in the United States of America.

Bikes and mopeds are the most popular modes transport for both locals and visitors.

'Conch Cruisers', slow-moving electric vehicles similar to golf carts and pedicabs are also available for hire.

The Old Town Trolley Tours and the Conch Tour Train offer hop on/hop off all day transport. Tickets are available onboard or at Mallory Square where it departs from.

A tour of the Ernest Hemmingway Home and Museum takes you inside his book-filled writing studio, and out to the swimming pool (the first one in Key West). You'll also see some 60 cats, descendants of the ones which lazed on Hemingway's lap while he wrote, roaming throughout the property.

Climb nearly 90 steps to the top of the Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum for fantasic views.

Stroll the 2 mile Harbour walk, which runs from Front to Grinnell streets.

There are endless shopping opportunities here including more unusual items found in the numerous art galleries, boutiques and craft emporiums.

Other attractions include the Key West Audubon House and Tropical Gardens, Key West Aquarium, the oldest attraction on the island and the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.

The Truman Little White House Key West Home and History Museum, originally built as officer quarters for those stationed at the Navy Station.

The Mel Fisher Maritime Museum has treasures salvaged from the 17th century Spanish galleon "Nuestra Senora de Atocha," shipwrecked off of Key West.

Take a glass-bottomed catamaran trip. The reef surrounding the city is the only living coral reef in North America and is full of exotic fish.

Nearly two centuries of black history in Key West can be found at the Lofton B. Sands African-Bahamian Museum.

The popular and busy Smathers Beach off South Roosevelt Boulevard has plenty facilities including food stalls, toilets and rentals such as chairs and watersport equipment.

Rest Beach near White Street Pier is only around 300ft long but is quieter, however there are less facilities here and the toilets are walking distance away.

Fort Zachary Taylor Beach at the end of Southard Street features a historical fort and a Civil War Museum. There are picnic tables, grills, toilets and showers.

There is a vast choice of food on offer from the freshest seafood and fish, to Cuban, American and International options.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at one of three docks at Port of Key West - Mallory Square Dock, Pier B (privately owned) and the Navy Mole (where a tourist trolley transports you off the base). If the port is busy, ships may anchor and tender passengers ashore.

Being an island 2 miles long by 4 miles wide, most attractions and facilities are within walking distance from the docks.
