Key West is an island and city in the Straits of Florida. It is the southernmost city in the contiguous United States and the westernmost island connected by highway in the Florida Keys. Key West offers some of the finest fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling in the world, in addition to the famous nightlife of Duval street, and historical Hemingway House. Sun-soaked year-round, Key West embraces the island life mentality to the fullest. The island’s yearly October celebration, Fantasy Fest, is described by many as Mardi Gras but weirder, and has on more than one occasion been so wild it shut the city down. Few places have the unique vibe of Key West, a city so insubordinate it often (jokingly) declares itself the the Conch Republic rather than a part of the US. Let your freak flag fly, and purchase some cannabis at a dispensary in Key West.
