The final stop on the Overseas Highway, Key West is where the land ends and meets the sea amid 19th-century charm and contemporary attractions. Continental America's southernmost city, situated closer to Cuba than to Miami, is characterized by quaint palm-studded streets, century-old gingerbread mansions and a relaxed citizenry of self-styled "conchs" (pronounced konks).
It has been said that the idiosyncratic architecture and laid-back atmosphere of this small, 2-by-4-mile island probably have nurtured the talents of more writers per capita than any other city in the country. Literally scores of published authors reside in Key West either full- or part-time, and the island's flourishing artistic community is evidenced by the many galleries exhibiting artwork in varying styles and mediums.
Accommodations range from the cozy to luxury, and many brand name hotels have taken root in the sand at the southernmost point in the United States.
