Key West is America’s Caribbean Island, connected to the FL mainland by a scenic highway. Located 7 miles offshore is the world’s 2nd largest, living coral reef, which attracts visitors from all over the world for snorkeling. Diving is also popular here, as well as sport fishing. The freshest seafood is available 365 days a year! Amazing, world class restaurants and entertainment abound! Gay friendly only begins to describe the locals and tourists. We have something for everyone. Our motto is “One Human Family”. Whether your tastes run toward sandals, shorts and a T-shirt, or more crisp linen pants, with a pressed cotton, button down shirt, you’ll find your own venues. We have an opera company, a symphony, a chorale, several repertory theaters, countless live music entertainment venues…all within a couple of miles of our home. Cycle or walk anywhere! Leave the car at home, or better yet, don’t rent a car at all! You really won’t need it!
