KEY WEST ­ Consider extending your Florida stay to visit one of the world's most intriguing cities. Key West's colorful cast of characters has ranged from Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon and railroad magnate Henry Flagler to President Harry Truman, who vacationed in the "Little White House" on Front Street. Long a haven for creative spirits, the island inspired acclaimed writers Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and Robert Frost. The old town section is rich with historic sites and architecture. Many of the homes and other buildings now function as inns, restaurants and museums. Duval Street in Old Town is called the longest main street in the world because it goes from coast to coast--from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. One block away is Whitehead Street, home to the Hemingway and Audubon Houses and the Key West Lighthouse. Don't miss Mallory Square and the Hilton Resort and Marina, for the sunset celebration, a nightly extravaganza. If you are driving, the distance is 158 miles and will take an estimated 3 hours. You can take a fourhour ferry from Miami Seaquarium, departing twice a day. There are air options as well. There are wonderful things to see and do, great shopping, fine dining, and lovely lodging choices. Bill and Betty Holley are our resident experts on Key West and have prepared a detailed travel guide, which they will be happy to share. For further information, email Betty at [email protected]
