Key West is a dream vacation destination for so many people, that its green Mile 0 marker is synonymous with the best of the tropical lifestyle. But you don’t have to leave this beautiful island paradise, after you relocate here and experience what the natives and locals see and do on a daily basis.
From Key West, to Stock Island, to Key Haven, it’s not just the southernmost tip of the United States, it’s the beginning of a new era, a new life and a new love affair. An affair that never loses its luster because there’s no end of things to see, do, explore and experience. The white sand beaches and views of the expansive Atlantic Ocean and calming tides of the Gulf of Mexico are here day after day, and along with them, flow balmy breezes day and night.
Sunrise and sunset are the biggest attractions on the island chain, where folks gather to spend a quiet moment and relax with a drink--after a long day of play.
Discovering the Beaches, Reefs and Natural Beauty of Key West
Everyone likes to laze around for a day on the beach. And for those who move here, it’s not just a weekend getaway or a break during the week, it’s a reality every single day of the year. But there’s a lot more to Key West than the beaches, reefs, and natural beauty.
Take a day out on the water, cruising along on a powerboat, or sail into the sunset, whichever you prefer. Some like the tranquility and quiet of kayaking or canoeing. Others opt for fun and adventure, so if that’s you’re thing, paddle board, parasail, water ski, or jet ski until your heart’s content.
Boats are just for pleasure, they’re also for adventure. Dive into the tropical waters and see the coral reefs. Dive the wrecks on the ocean floor or spearfish. Speaking of fishing, there’s nothing like taking on a sport fish or deep sea fishing. Anglers can also toss a pole off the side of their boat or off the side of a pier.
