Every aspect of the diverse Key West landscape, from its unique cultural heritage to its 1982 secession from the United States, is commemorated with colorful festivals and interesting tours that delight visitors and display residents' penchant for partying. Interspersed with some very intriguing history, of course.

One of the most legendary and literary tours is through the house and gardens at 907 Whitehead St. - still "home" to one of the United States' most renowned writers - the late Ernest Hemingway. Now a registered National Historic Landmark, the Spanish colonial villa is open to the public as a museum honoring the island's most famous literary resident. Winner of both the Nobel and Pulitzer prizes, the author lived on the property with his second wife Pauline and their two children from 1931 to 1940. He owned the home until his death in 1961.

Hemingway wrote many of his best-known works in the second-story writing studio adjoining the house. Among them were "Death in the Afternoon," "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "The Green Hills of Africa," "The Fifth Column," "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "To Have and Have Not," which is set in Depression-era Key West. Following his death, the unpublished manuscript that was to become "Islands in the Stream" was found in a vault in the property's garage.
