Top 5 Things About Key West

Top 5 Things About Key West

Staying in Key West

1. Sunset Celebration - This arts festival is held at the pier and is filled with music, street performers, food carts, and many more attractions. I was able to learn about multicultural arts while enjoying the sun set into the Gulf of Mexico. The sunsets here are like no other. 

2. Duval Street - It's a historical and tourist spot by day and an extremely busy and lively area by night. Duval Street is the best place to blow off some steam and have a drink or two at the many restaurants and bars they have to offer.

3. Blue Heaven - This is by far my favorite place to eat breakfast, and I will go out of my way to dine al fresco at Blue Heaven every time I have the chance. 

I met a very unique artist named Afro on the premises that was selling his paintings in which he depicts the cultural influence that the surrounding Caribbean islands have on Key West.

4. Waldorf Astoria Casa Marina - Thank you to the beachfront hotel for a relaxing experience. 

The architecture is very much European/Spaniard-inspired. The place is gorgeous and has many pools, and our room had an oceanfront view. Staying here felt like being on a tropical island without having to leave the US. 

Waldorf Astoria Casa Marina is truly a jewel in the Key West. If you want a calm, premiere luxury stay with very mature, seasoned travelers without too much of the excitement happening on Duval Street, this is the place for you.

5. 90 Miles to Cuba - As a Cuban American, it was great for me to see the concrete marker near the "Southernmost point in the continental United States," which also has the Statue of the Conch-Blowing Greeter.
