Key West in detail

Key West is a funky community at the southernmost tip of the continental U.S. founded by shipwreck salvagers in the 19th century. Uniquely different, the town celebrates its mixed population of artists, hippies, gays, lesbians, rat-race drop-outs and fishermen.

Natives call themselves ‘conchs' (pronounced konks) after a Caribbean mollusk that lives in a big shell and goes at its own pace -- describing the community that calls itself the Conch Republic. Bars and boutiques cater to tourists, six-toed cats have their own veterinarian at Ernest Hemingway's former home, and roosters rule at the base of the town lighthouse.
