The southernmost point in the United States, Key West is famous for watersports, lively nightlife, beaches and historic sites. Don’t miss Duval Street, one of the most energetic strips of shops, bars and cafes in all the land. Did we mention Sloppy Joe’s bar, a favorite Key West hangout of novelist Ernest Hemingway? And, for the more sober-minded, the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum (look for the celebrated six-toed cats). Yes indeed, walking tours of Key West are the best way to see the island’s intriguing architecture, courtyards and gardens. Just start in the center of town at the Key West City Cemetery, which offers a glimpse of Key West’s past and its offbeat sense of humor, as exhibited by gravestones that read, “I told you I was sick,” and “At least I know where he’s sleeping tonight”.
In Key Largo, you’ll enjoy your stay in the island paradise, this is the first of the fabulous Florida Keys and the self-proclaimed Dive Capital of the World. Key Largo is home to the world’s largest artificial reef, the 510-foot USS Spiegel Grove, the John Pennekamp Coral Reef Underwater State Park and the African Queen. Everglades National Park is just a short trip away from Key Largo. Diving, snorkeling and glass-bottom boating in the clear waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are fantastic experiences. Watersport activities in Key Largo are plentiful, including fishing, kayaking and swimming with the dolphins. Or you can just relax with a tropical beverage and watch the beautiful sunsets there.
Overall, Key Largo is way more laid back than Key West. You definitely want to spend at least one day in Key West, especially if you like to shop, but Key West is too crazy and too many people to spend more than a day at. If you’re looking for the tranquility of the upper keys, you’re choice must goes to Key Largo.
