Key West

The End of the Road. Margaritaville. The Conch Republic. All of Key West’s many names evoke images of palm trees, beverages, and a laid-back island lifestyle. Famous as a fishing town, a funky village, a pirate hideaway, and an artist retreat, it is a warmhearted place where all are welcome. There’s something for everyone: a colorful history, a vibrant arts community, legendary watering holes, the only living coral barrier reef in North America, and a kaleidoscope of wildlife—on land, at sea, and on Duval Street.
