Florida, Key West

Fabulous Key West

Fantastic Key West

The next stop on our tour around Florida was Key West. Since Marathon was so close, we chose to make this a day (all day) trip. There were so many things we wanted to do since none of us had ever been here before. There is and endless amount of things to do here for people of all ages.

Southernmost Point

This is pretty much a mandated stop when you’re in Key West. For those that don’t know, it’s the most southern point in the United States.  From this point, it’s only 90 miles to Cuba.

There was a short line for pictures when we got there, maybe 15 minutes. We made friends with the family in front of us and we traded taking pictures. It’s a cool site to see and the kids loved it.

Hemingway House

My son the history buff was looking forward to touring the house. The fee was nominal, maybe $5/person and that included a tour guide as well as free time to explore.

Our tour guide was fantastic. He was personable and very educational. He entertained the adults and also did a great job of keeping the kids involved as well.

The tour went all through his house, his writing room and the pool. We learned so much!

Hemingway’s famed 6 toed cats were everywhere

I highly recommend this tour if in Key West. Our entire family enjoyed it and it’s a great educational experience.


Being huge Buffett fans, this was practically a requirement for us. We found it easily on Duval Street. The restaurant is small and. It exactly what we expected since it is the original, but we went in anyway. Everyone ordered something different and all the food was good. Our server was fantastic and did some cool stuff with the kids.

There was a gift shop next door to the restaurant that we looked around in for a while. They had some neat stuff that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

Duval Street

The most famous street in Key West. We loved this street. There are endless varieties of stores, art galleries, restaurants and coffee shops.

Overall our day in Key West was too short. We hated to leave. There was so much we didn’t get to see and do. Next time!!

  2. What fun! I’ve been thinking seriously of adding a trip to Key West to our vacation agenda. I didn’t know that Hemingway had some history in the area! I love Hemingway. My husband and I visited some of his old haunts in Northern Michigan a few months ago. So cool!
