Whether it's spring break, Fantasy Fest, or just another weeknight, Key West is a paradise for late-night revelers. While some visitors are content to settle into one spot for the evening, others prefer to go from bar to bar, club to club along Duval Street, doing what's known as the Duval Crawl until 4 a.m. The buzz isn't limited to Duval Street. In addition, there are fine arts performances, tea dances, art gallery openings, historic tours, ghost walks, and piano bars throughout the island. Key West is blessed with near-perfect weather and is surrounded by a bountiful coral reef, making the great outdoors one of the island's biggest attractions. The southern coast is lined with sandy-albeit most of it imported-beaches, with facilities ranging from pickleball and tennis courts, picnic tables, playgrounds to water sports concessions and restaurants. Fishing, scuba diving, and nature tours lure the more energetic visitors onto the warm, clear waters. Birders are equally impressed with the opportunities the island's weather and waters afford. Key West has been grabbing the world's attention since the 1600s, when Spanish fishermen from Cuba discovered the prolific fishing grounds around the island. It hasn't slowed down.
This is the historic section of Key West in the downtown area. The Center of which is Duval Street, which is said to be the longest street in the US - running from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. The street is lined with many shops, restaurants, and bars with lively entertainment. This is where Key West began and grew to be the most populated and wealthiest city in Florida in 1876 when the cigar rolling industry and sponging were king. There is a lot of colorful history in these old streets. The rest of Key West did not develop until after World War II when, what is now known as New Town, was salt marshes that gradually were filled to create land for development. The character and charm of Old Town have been painstakingly preserved in the largest residential historic district in the United States. Prices per square foot are some of the highest on the island, but the proximity of restaurants, entertainment, and shops within walking distance.
It's a fascinating place, where the present proudly wears its history like gold charms on a bracelet, each telling a story of who was who and what was where. The who includes a star-studded list of writers, artists, and statesmen, from Hemingway and President Truman to Tennessee Williams and John James Audubon, all of whose residences now house museums. The where reveals itself in scores of buildings dating back to the early 1800s. Those who appreciate Key West's unique history fight to restore rather than build new and share their love of the architecture, history, literature, and local lore through lively walking tours of the Old Town. As a result of their sometimes heroic efforts, few other cities can claim as many well-preserved Victorian-era houses.
Truman Annex is a neighborhood in Old Town, Key West, Florida, that was the winter White House for President Harry S. Truman during its days as part of the Key West Naval Station. It is located on the western end of Key West adjacent to Bahama Village and the Old Town historic area. Today it is transformed into a gated residential community of 304 Conch-style houses and 281 condos surrounded by palm trees and white picket fences, which includes The Shipyard, President´s Walk, The Foundry, Mills Place Porter Place, and Harbor Place. The Annex got its start in 1845 as part of the Fort Zachary Taylor army base. Confederate Florida seceded in 1861, but Key West remained in the Union, thanks to a midnight takeover of Fort Zachary Taylor by federal troops stationed on the island. The base was eventually taken over in 1947 as the "Fort Zachary Taylor Annex" to the Key West Naval Station. New docks had been added in 1932 to make it a home b

New Town in Key West is further away from the Duval Street liveliness but also a great option. This part of the island was once salt ponds and marshes. It was created from landfill in the 1940's and 1950's to allow for early suburban development. For years this has been the favorite neighborhood for locals. There are grocery stores, car dealers, schools and a Home Depot. The yards are bigger, parking is easier and the prices are lower.

Remember you are on an island that is only 2 miles X 4 miles, so you are never that far from anything
