Discover a newer side of Florida’s Key West

90 miles from Cuba and nested on the southernmost tip of Florida Keys is where you will find a small haven of rich bohemian culture that’s bordering on Caribbean more than American. Key West is known to be a melting pot of writers, artists, street musicians, sailors, and ultimately, bohemians who walk the streets daily and probably even carrying books by Voltaire.

Start your day exploring Old Town where most of the tourist attractions can be found. To be able to fully explore this old town that is Old Town, hop on the trolley tour buses which scour the area and take a trip down 500 years of rich history. After the tour, you can choose to explore some more on foot (with a little shopping on the side) and treat yourself to some of Key West’s unique dishes that can be found at the bar and restaurant district down at Duval Street.

If you’ve conquered up history on your itinerary and had your fill of tasteful architecture, it’s time to get in touch with nature as you check out Key West’s tropical gardens, butterfly conservatories, their island cruises, and marvel at the glorious sunset up at Mallory Square. Soak up the scenery and set up a picnic at environmental artist’s Nancy Forrester’s small patch of paradise down at Simonton Street or walk down the path of nature and feast your eyes on all the beautiful butterflies at Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. To cap off a very spiritual and enriching day, choose a cozy spot down at Mallory Square and join the Sunset Celebration. Don’t worry about missing this as this happens daily.

Find your way to a whole new adventure and be ready to pack up your belt with a whole lot of new experiences down at this unique city. Call up a Key West car rental, hop in, and brace yourself for a whole new world.
