Key West, FL

Key West, which has counted Robert Frost and Jimmy Buffet among its residents, marks the southernmost point in the continental United States. Visitors of this port can unwind on an idyllic beach, zoom past sea turtles on a Jet Ski outing, spot dolphins from a catamaran cruise or go snorkeling at North America’s only living coral reef. The island can be navigated on foot or bicycle, but the Conch Tour Train makes a full loop of the Old Town area. Hop on and off to see sights such as the lighthouse, shipwreck museum, an aquarium and Truman’s Little White House, the winter home for the country’s 33rd president. Shoppers can find designer clothes and specialty items in boutiques along Duval Street, while literary lovers will want to visit the house where Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote for more than 10 years. Food tours offer a taste of fish tacos, rum cocktails and Key lime pie.
