Key West Travel Guide

Key West is a US island city, part of the Florida Keys archipelago. It’s also Florida’s southernmost point, very close to Cuba, just 90 miles north of Cuba. Key West is a major tourist attraction and a popular cruise-ship stop. The island is accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway, the drive to Key West by itself is a one-of-a-kind experience, and a must-see in Florida.

Best Way To Explore Key West

Duval Street | Key West Travel Guide

I highly recommend the Old Town Trolley Tours, a well narrated, hop-on hop-off trolley bus tour, stopping at all major attractions in Key West. If you’re driving form Miami, 3.5 hours drive to Key West from Miami, I suggest you check-into your hotel, stretch your back, get something to eat, park your car and then hop onto the Old Town trolley.
