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.
