Things to do near Key West

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Key West, along with a brief description:

Hemingway Home & Museum

Tour the home of famed author Ernest Hemingway, who resided in Key West while writing A Farewell to Arms. You don’t need to be a literature buff to enjoy this museum. Hemingway once owned dozens of cats, including Snow White, a polydactyl feline. Descendants of that six-toed cat are among the 60 cats housed in this estate. The Hemingway Home is open daily, and walk-in visits are welcome.

Mallory Square

Mallory Square is the perfect spot from which to pack the quintessential Key West experience into one fun day! There are plenty of wonderful shops and restaurants along with bars, museums, gardens, and much more. You can also watch the sun go down at Sunset Celebration, one of the most popular attractions in all of Key West. This plaza is conveniently located right by the cruise port in Key West’s storied Old Town.

Southernmost Point

Key West is the southernmost city of the contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). This fact is commemorated with a monument, erected in 1983 but recently refurbished following damage from Hurricane Irma, at the corner of South and Whitehead Streets. Take a picture next to the replica anchored buoy to celebrate the geographical quirk.
