The southernmost tip of the United States, Key West, is closer to Cuba and the Bahamas than to Tallahassee, Florida’s own state capital. These Caribbean influences make every trip to Key West feel like you’re visiting a place that’s exotic and familiar at the same time. While you’re here, don’t forget to visit the marker that indicates the southernmost point of the US, as well as historic attractions like Fort Zachary Taylor and The Hemingway Home and Museum. In addition to several non-touristy things to do, try to check out the Key West’s Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, Audubon House, one of the finest Colonial homes in Key West, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and Dry Tortugas National Park. Before looking into these attractions, check out the top 2-bedroom hotels in Key West, Florida, below.
