Key West

Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Florida Keys  /  Key West

Conch Republic

Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide. Despite its small size and the fact that only one road connects it to the mainland, the island attracts numerous visitors eager to do their own thing. Key West remains immune to the pitfalls of mass tourism and offers simple pleasures long forgotten by big-name vacation resorts. On this little bit of land, you can set your clock to island time: spend your vacation snorkeling the clear waters by day and exploring the main street's bars and restaurants by night. Key West is in Florida Keys. Our United States journey builder tool combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
