There are tons of things to do and you don't have to spend a fortune to participate. For instance you can tour "Old Town" which has fascinating buildings built from 1886 - 1912. This area has lots to see and some great attractions such as Mallory Square and Duval Street.

Visiting this crazy place is aninexpensive and highly rewarding activity for your vacation. Some things you will gawk at, other you will laugh at and some will leave you so puzzled you really will question if it is fake. The lobby greets you with a prehistoric Mastodon skeleton, a car covered in dimes, and a replica of the world's tallest man who stood at 8 feet 11 inches at 22 years old!

Places To Stay

All types of accommodations are convenient and all budgets are covered in Key West. Hotels, motels, and resorts are plentiful, while RV parks, camping options, guest houses, villa's, and condo's are all easily planned as well.

One of the best accommodations in Key West

My first choice when it comes to the ultimate irresistible accommodation is the Hyatt Key West Resort And Spa. This resort has combined the intimate island feel of Key West and complemented it with chic opulence and five star service. Guests are offered the utmost respect and care, with the staff going so far as to implement an allergy protocol which their website describes as "rooms undergo an additional six step process to reduce airborne particles and minimize the presence of potential irritants". On site you will find the Key West Golf Course which is (just like the resort) amazing! Jet skis, explore packages, and sunset cruises are all offered exclusively by the Hyatt. Of course, as the name indicates, spa services are also here and they too are beyond your wildest expectations. For every hour you dedicate to them they will return it ten fold with relaxation, rejuvenation and stress release.

So who is Key West best suited for? Well, by rights, everyone! It's a great destination for families, couples, and friends both young and senior. The cities charm and numerous free activities certainly add to its appeal!
