From the golden sands of Smathers Beach to the famous Sloppy Joe’s Bar, Key West, Florida is stuffed to the gills with surprises. Situated at the tip of the stunning, sun-soaked chain of islands known as the Florida Keys, Key West is an enchanting blend of gorgeous beaches and historic landmarks. Long thought of as a haven for lost souls and eccentric islanders, Key West has become a popular destination for families, couples, and those looking for some inspiration from one of America’s greatest writers.

If you love diving then you’ll be in heaven here, as Key West is one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world.
