No matter if you are a party animal, seafood connoisseur, average foodie, avid fisherman, relaxing beach bum, history buff or just a person who wants a tropical vacation, then Key West is for you.
From the bars, restaurants and shops on Duval Street, to the beautiful sunset at Southern Most Point to the historic sites throughout the city, there is something for everyone with morning thru the night activity.
Parking is limited and streets are narrow, so one should plan to do a lot of walking when visiting Key West. See our post on Planning and Budgeting for a Key West Vacation. If your vacation is solely Key West and you do not plan to visit any other of the other Florida Keys, then no rental car is needed, as you can easily get around the Island with Taxi, Uber or Lyft.
Key West International Airport (EYW) is on the Island with flights from major airlines American, Delta and United
