Key West, the southernmost city in the continental United States, is a tropical blend of beautiful waters, exotic foliage, wonderful restaurants and lodging facilities and history-enriched attractions and activities. Visitors immediately enjoy the Caribbean feel of this island nation called the Conch Republic.
Since its founding in 1822, Key West has gone through many phases, from pirates to poets, and carries the creative torch of such former residents as Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams.
|Sunset Celebration takes place at Mallory Square. The participants of this Key West attraction consist of art and crafts, exhibitors, street performers, food carts, psychics and of course the thousands of tourists from around the world who visit this Key West art show. Each night around two hours before sunset masses of people, both locals and tourists alike, flock to the water's edge to experience a multicultural happening and to watch the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico.|
