Photo Album — Key West, Florida, USA

                Key West is the southernmost city in the continental USA and, besides its fantastic weather and climate, has drawn tourists for many years due to its devil-may-care residents and their strange activities.  Ernest Hemingway lived here for many years and the Hemingway House is a major tourist spot.  Also noteworthy is the Conch Tour Train, a wheeled train that takes visitors on a narrated tour of the major sights. Actually, it is a great way to begin a visit since it provides a wonderful orientation.

            Duval Street is the main street in the tourist area. On the corner, near the waterfront is Sloppy Joe’s Bar, a “must” on every tourist itinerary, for drinks and people-watching.

Another mandatory experience for all visitors is watching the sunset from Mallory Square.  There are numerous shops in the vicinity of the square for browsing.
