Key West sits at the very tip of Southeast Florida; it's about 160 miles miles (by car) from Miami and 81 nautical miles from Cuba. Key West remained a relatively isolated fishing village even after it was connected to the mainland in 1912, when the Overseas Railway extension was built. Today, travelers flock to Key West Florida Bed and Breakfasts to partake in the principal pastime - relaxing at the pool or beach.
Key West is an urban tropical paradise, with more shops and restaurants than open areas. Tolerance is the norm - even stray chickens are welcomed into restaurants and cafes. Any excuse for a party is embraced. Festivals range from the Cuban-American Heritage Festival in June to Fantasy Fest in October. The Taste of Key West in April is sure to delight all palates, and Hemingway Days brings aspiring writers to the island each July.
Ernest Hemingway was one of the most famous residents of Key West. Papa Hemingway developed a love for deep-sea fishing here (it is said his fellow anglers dubbed him "Papa"), and worked on several stories while on the island. The Ernest Hemingway House in Old Town, built in 1851, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now an interesting museum in Old Town.
Old Town is Key West's original settlement, and is today one of the city’s most popular destinations. It is a neighborhood brimming with historic architecture. Many Key West Florida Bed and Breakfasts are in Old Town, as are attractions such as Fort Zachary Taylor, Mallory Square, and Duval Street.
