Key West - Florida USA

Key West is a little town, at the Southernmost Point of USA. We've stayed there for one night. We arrived in the afternoon, and we decided to visit the city center without to lose a minute! It's a typical little town, with roosters in the streets, bars and souvenirs shop everywhere.

The main street of the Old Town (historic area) is very animated along the day and the night. You can listen to the music group in most bars, while drinking a cocktail made ​​of rum! Along Roosevelt boulevard (New Town), there are malls, many hotels, sports grounds and the airport.

You will not find beautiful beaches here. There are a lot of seaweed on the beaches, a very unpleasant odor emanating from it! Very bad point! ... but you can practice a lot of activities like diving, the tour of the island by jet ski, and an excursion to the Dry Tortugas islands...

Despite what i have mentionned above, some compagnies give you the possiblitity to visit the Museum on the History of Key West and guided tour of haunted Key West. For sure, after that, you do not sleep as well!
You can also have a look to the house of Hernest Hemingway, who was a writer, journalist and war correspondent for the US.

My advice: before going to the Southernmost marker, make a halt to the shop to buy one (or more) Key Lime Pie at Kermit’s (802 Duval Street, Key West)Eat it slowly and enjoy the taste of lime!

Beautiful view, but a lot of tourists (as us) want to take a picture of them behind the marker, so go there earlier if you want to have the Greatest Picture!
