has a warm tropical climate tempered by refreshing ocean breezes, giving it splendid yachting conditions year round. This historic, seafaring town, the southernmost city in the U.S., is undoubtedly one of the most unique places you will ever visit. Tradition lives on at the renovated Historic Seaport District, known to locals as “Key West Bright.” Within walking distance of the port are historic homes, tropical gardens, art galleries, shops, quaint restaurants and lively bars and pubs. During the day the streets and docks are filled with musicians, jugglers, mimes and street artists. At dusk, everyone gathers for the nightly Sunset Celebration on Mallory Dock, and as darkness falls, the city moves to another beat when the world-class restaurants and legendary pubs come alive. The Keys are sheltered by the only living coral reef in the U.S. and are known for their spectacular scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities. Other things to see and do include kayaking and eco-tours, dolphin watching, island hopping and fishing excursions. Key West has excellent marina facilities that offer bareboat and private charter rentals, sailing and sunset dinner cruises and sightseeing tours. There is also a full calendar of special events year-round in Key West, including fishing tournaments, international power boat and yacht races, a lighted boat parade, and Fantasy Fest, Key West’s answer to Mardi Gras which takes place for ten days in October.
