Early in the morning, we hit the road from Islamorada where we were staying for the night, and go to Key West (1h40 drive from Islamorada)
we parked on Truman Avenue (one of the few free parking street in Key West), and walked all day in this famous city of Key West.
The things to see there are the Southernmost Point of the Continental U.S.A also called The Southernmost Point Buoy which is an anchored concrete buoy where tourists like to take selfie.
I particularly appreciated the visit of Ernest Hemingway’s house (http://www.hemingwayhome.com/), a charming old house, and an immersion in the life of the writer at that time.
The beaches in Key West are not very impressive, but allow you to refresh yourself. The atmosphere of the city, and in particular the famous Duval Street, is much more interesting to explore.
According to me, one day is more than enough to visit Key West, especially since I was travelling with children, so I did not explore the “night life” of Duval Street.
on the way back, we took a swim break at Bahia Honda State Park, which offers different beaches with green water. we can also see and visit the beginning of an old bridge, left abandoned, which retraces the history of the construction of the mythical road to Key West
In the evening we spent our second night at the Sands of Islamorada hotel then head of Everglades
