Since its founding in 1822, the charms of Key West have attracted poets, pirates, and politicians, among others. It was president Harry Truman who said once, while relaxing at his Key West home, that “I wish I could move the capital to Key West, and just stay here”.

The southernmost city in the United States has a variety of accomodations, but they may be booked at peak season and require planning ahead, especially in the winter when all the snowbirds arrive. The entire island is about three and a half miles long, with the city of Key West on the west side. The airport and entrance to the overseas highway, better known as US highway One, on the east side.

The historic La Concha Hotel, now a Crowne Plaza Hotel, has hosted the rich and famous, such as writers Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway, since opening in 1926. Sitting on Duval Street in the heart of Old Key West, it’s a national historic landmark.

Nearby is the Pier House Resort and Caribbean Spa, which started about forty years ago and claims to be the first Key West resort hotel. It is dedicated to the enjoyment of the island’s free-spirited lifestyle, including a discreet topless-optional sunning area. At One Duval Street, right on the Gulf of Mexico.

Another national historic landmark is Casa Marina Resort and Beach Club, built in 1920 and boasting the longest private beach on the island. The grounds are surrounded by palm trees and native flowers. A magnificent Key West hotel facing the sunrise. At 1500 Reynolds Street.

All three are close to Mallory Square, where everyone watches the sunset, plus the aquarium, shopping and nightlife, The Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, the ferry landing and fishing charters.
