Key West is an island city in the Florida Keys, and it serves as the county seat of Monroe County. The city includes the main island and several nearby islands, and was once the largest and wealthiest city in the state of Florida back in 1889.

Key West was isolated from the rest of the US until 1912, when Henry M. Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) connected the island to the rest of Florida; a major hurricane on Labor Day of 1935 destroyed most of the railroad, and the FEC could not afford to repair it. The US government rebuilt the road as an automobile highway, completed in 1938. Known as the Overseas Highway, it became an extension of United States Highway 1, leading to the southernmost point in the United States; President Franklin Roosevelt famously toured the highway in 1939.

The city earned the nickname “Gibraltar of the West” thanks to its location on the 90-mile shipping lanes between the Straits of Florida, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of Mexico, and it became an important naval station during the 20th century; Harry S. Truman even established his Winter White House here, which you can visit today.

Also taking a liking to the island was novelist Ernest Hemingway, who spent a lot of time at his house which is now known as the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum. Famous playwright Tennessee Williams became a regular visitor to Key West during the 1940s, and it’s rumored that he finished his first draft of A Streetcar Named Desire while staying at the La Concha Hotel in 1947. Williams bought a house in 1949 and listed the city as his primary residence until passing away in 1983.

Today, Key West is a hotspot for spring breakers, weekend escapees, summer vacationers, and fishing/yachting enthusiasts; the surrounding coral reefs offer outstanding snorkeling and scuba diving experiences. Duval Street is the city’s main road, and home to most of its bars and nightlife. It’s also a mecca for the gay community, adding plenty of color and fun to the neighborhood.
