Spotlight on Florida: Key West

Key West is a beautiful island at the farthest end of the Florida Keys. Although a popular tourist destination the island retains old world charm. You wont find chain stores or McDonald’s. You will find fishing and boating harbors, museums, art and crafts stores and fine dining. You wont even find a “real” beach but you can swim in the manmade beach.


One place I’ve wanted to visit is Ernest Hemingway’s Key West Home. It seems no matter what I do I just can’t seem to get there before close. Just too busy swimming I guess.

Another popular attraction is the marker doing Key West as the most southern point in the continental United States and only 90 miles from Cuba.
