Key West Attractions

The Famous and the Fascinating

Key West is more than meets the eye and way beyond what you might have heard. Our island’s history rests on the ocean floor and spills out of bar doors up and down Duval Street. It hangs in tall palms and carries itself proudly like a rogue rooster or one of Hemingway’s six-toed cats. To understand Key West’s unique story, you need to be willing to venture beyond the ordinary to discover a place caught between the trade winds of American history and the wrecklessly wild Caribbean breezes. From Spanish Galleons to bustling city squares, get to know the Conch Republic through our local attractions.
