11 Best Things to Do in Key West

Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Laura Ratliff of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 12: Key West is not just some Florida beach town. It is absolutely packed with history: Presidents have lived here, wars have been fought here, and one of civilization’s most prolific writers took pen to paper here (and left behind a beautiful home to visit). If that’s not enough for you, the area boasts—expectedly—a few great beaches, and—perhaps unexpectedly—state and national parks with crowds that are delightfully sparse. The sportfishing off Key West is also world-renowned (while we can't promise you'll catch a big one...you'll catch a big one). In case it wasn't clear already, a trip to the southernmost part of the continental United States will never leave you bored.
