Known for its eclectic, laid-back atmosphere, Key West is like a whole new world! Situated at the tip of the continental United States, Key West is actually not far from Cuba, and is the largest island in the Florida Keys. This city is rich with history, and was once home to Ernest Hemingway, John James Audubon and Thomas Edison.

One of the most beloved attractions on the island is the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum, a must-see for any literary enthusiast.
Key West's white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters are like no other place on the planet. Simply lay your head back on a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks while listening to the waves crash. You’ll feel like a million bucks! If you’re looking for a more physical way to calm your mind, attend a class at Shakti Yoga or Yoga on Beach. Travelers can even spend an afternoon getting pampered at one of the many spas. Drive a Key West rental car to calm, restore and energize yourself.
Key West is home to some of the most outstanding outdoor recreation in the state of Florida. From golfing to fishing, anyone will love spending an afternoon in the sun. Drive your Key West rental car to one of the several golf course on the islands. The Key West Country Club is a stunning public course on Stock Island, and Key West Golf Club’s championship-rated course is like no other! Any fisherman or woman traveling to the Keys must take part in this famous sport of the region, where it’s possible to catch mahi-mahi, tuna, billfish and much more.
At only two miles wide by four miles long, Key West may be short on acreage, but is certainly long on history, culture and activity. Since being settled by Spain in the 16th century as a small fishing community, Key West has lured many happy visitors with its beautiful beaches, classic architecture and first-class dining. In a Key West rental car, you can explore every nook and cranny of this storied paradise!
No trip to Key West would be complete without a stop to Ernest Hemingway’s home, nestled in the heart of Old Town. After a short drive in your Key West car rental, the whole family can step back in time to visit the rooms, gardens and views that witnessed the most prolific time of the beloved Nobel Prize-winning author’s career. While on the insightful tour, you can delight in the forty or so polydactyl (six-toed) cats that roam the property, descendents of Hemingway’s own dear pet Snowball.
Deep Sea Delights
What drew Hemingway to Key West and kept him enthralled? After a day filled with writing, he enjoyed some of the best fishing in the Western Hemisphere, venturing out into the deep to bring back marlin, grouper and tuna.
