Cruise the Keys in your Key West rental car!
Known for its eclectic, laid-back atmosphere, Key West is situated at the tip of the continental United States, and is rich with history. This key was once home to Ernest Hemingway, John James Audubon and Thomas Edison. 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!
Key West's white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters are like no other place on the planet. Lay back on a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks next to the Atlantic ocean….you’ll feel like a million bucks! You can always find others way to calm your mind and unwind at one of the many beach yoga classes if you’re looking for something physical. Take your Key West rental car around the island to one of the many spas to restore and energize yourself.
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, descendants of Hemingway’s own dear pet Snowball.
A nice drive is to the Historic Seaport and Harbor Walk of Bight, and enjoy the stunning community. Explore shopping and abundant restaurants, where the old mixes with the new. You can let your hair down and slip into the simplistic ways of yesteryear. Shipwreck treasures, artifacts, works by renowned artists and literary legends can be found in any of the city’s museums. One of the most beloved attractions on the island is the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum, a must-see for any literary enthusiast.
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.
Wine and Dine by the Sea
With such a pristine location right on the Atlantic, and famously only 90 miles from Cuba, it’s no wonder Key West is such a culinary destination!
