Not to miss
A string of idyllic tropical islands off Florida’s southern tip, the beautiful Florida Keys are simply stunning. Gorgeous beaches, turquoise waters, secluded coves and awe-inspiring bridges all combine to create a truly magical holiday experience. Grab your camera and get a snap of yourself at the Southernmost Point Buoy on Key West. It’s one of the most visited and photographed attractions in all of the USA! For a spot of culture whilst you’re in Key West, visit Ernest Hemingway’s home and museum and don’t miss Duval Street, which is home to a plethora of buzzing bars, trendy shops and outdoor cafes.
For the finest and freshest seafood and chops, the award-winning Barracuda Grill is the place to be. If you have room for dessert, be sure to have the key lime cheesecake! Named as one of the ‘100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America for 2017’, Latitudes offers delicious cuisine as well as breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Choose to dine in the Ernest Hemingway Room, where photos of authors and former Key Wests resident adorn the walls, or outdoors where tiki torches illuminate the night sky and magnify the glorious Key West sunset. If you’re a coffee lover, you won’t want to miss the Cuban Coffee Queen, an authentic Key West Café serving serves delicious coffee and sandwiches.
Live like a local
Live like a local and visit Mallory Square in Key West’s Old Town, where sunset celebrations and street entertainment take place each night. The hub of Key West’s social life from its beginnings, it’s where the locals would come to exchange news, gossip and shop! The Marathon Turtle Hospital is also a lovely place to visit and since it first invited the public through its doors back in 1986, it has successfully nursed over 1000 sea turtles back to health. For a real taste of the old Key West, the Half Shell Raw Bar is a true Key West icon. Grab a seat at one of the wooden picnic tables and enjoy some of the freshest seafood that you’re every likely to eat.
