Things to Do in Key West
“I Told You I Was Sick” is just one of the amusing epitaphs you’ll find at Key West Cemetery, a top island attraction for its quirky grave markers, unique statues and white-washed above-ground tombs.
Head to Smathers Beach on the southern coast of Key West Island to experience the area’s best beach, a half-mile sandy stretch with restrooms, picnic areas, food vendors and metered parking.
Historians, literary buffs, and cat lovers alike are enthralled by the well-preserved Hemingway Home and Gardens, a charming National Historic Landmark which is just a short walk from our hotel. Ernest Hemingway, top-drawer 20th-century American writer, spent ten productive and happy years here while fishing and socializing with the locals he grew so fond of during the 1930s. The Ernest Hemingway home and museum in Key West is an internationally known attraction.
