Key West, the southernmost point in the United States, is famous for watersports, lively nightlife, beaches, historic sites and its pastel, conch-style architechture.
And, for the more sober-minded, there's Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. (Look for the celebrated six-toed cats).
Walking tours of Key West are the best way to see the island's intriguing homes, courtyards and gardens. Start in the center of town at the Key West City Cemetery, which offers a glimpse of Key West's past and its offbeat sense of humor, as exhibited by gravestones that read, "I told you I was sick," and "At least I know where he's sleeping tonight."
