Key West

— 2 nights

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Vandenberg Wreck and Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center. And it doesn't end there: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, make a trip to Duval Street, take in the exciting artwork at Alan S. Maltz Gallery, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

Plan a trip to Key West easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Scuba & Snorkeling · Landmarks · Parasailing & Paragliding
An archipelago of about 1,700 islands extending in a gentle arc south and southwest of Florida's mainland, the Florida Keys divide the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico. Many visitors on vacation come to scuba dive in the coral reefs, fossilized and exposed as sea levels declined over thousands of years. In addition to being one of the world's top diving and fishing spots, the Keys feature hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, and various tourist attractions, most of them crowded all year long with visitors on vacation. To soak up the Keys' atmosphere and discover writer Ernest Hemingway's former haunts, drive from one island to the other all the way to Key West, located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba.
