Key West - Southernmost point in USA

Key West – Southernmost point in USA

Key West was surprisingly pretty fun. The wharf area has a lot of neat shops and attractions. At evening all kinds of, well, freaks come out of the cracks in the sidewalks. Funny costumes and face makeup. My kind of fun.

The town is a gay center of the US and vies with San Francisco for honors.
There are shops full of local paintings and sculptures. This photo is a “mandatory” for your trip. It’s a moderate walk to the west and you can count on a line pf people waiting to get their photo.

Key West is a usual stop fo cruise ships sailing the Caribbean. It’s not exactly cheap, but I ended up buying a needed pair of shoes that I did not see in California. I even rented a scooter for $40 and tooled around the island. They ask you to stay you in the main town, but I had to go north a few miles to see the Naval Air station. While I was in college, I was in ROTC and able to get a hop down there from Andrews AFB. A fun time even back there. I spend 3 days on a young person’s budge – 2 meal a day at McDonald’s!

Oh, I forgot, Ernest Hemmingway’s house is open for tours.
