Along with the surrounding shoals and waters, they make up Dry Tortugas National Park. The area is known for its famous bird and marine life, its legends of pirates and sunken gold, and its military past.

Key West is an island in the Straits of Florida on the North American continent at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys.The Southernmost City - Key West

Explore a city where real estate titles date back to the Kings of Spain.

Key West is an island in the Straits of Florida on the North American continent at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys. The island is about 90 miles (140 km) from Cuba.

Key West is politically within the limits of the city of Key West, Monroe County, Florida, United States. The city also occupies portions of nearby islands.

The island is about 4 miles (6.4 km) long and 2 miles (3.2 km) wide. In the late 1950s many of the large salt ponds on the eastern side were filled in, nearly doubling the original land mass of the island. The island is 3,370 acres (13.6 km2) in area.

Walk along the palm-lined historical streets and discover gingerbread mansions, tin-roofed conch houses, the John Audubon House and Ernest Hemingway's home.

Walk in the footsteps of Thomas Edison, Lou Gehrig, Harry Truman, and Tennessee Williams.

Marvel at the accomplishment of Henry Flagler, an oil tycoon whose Florida Keys Over-Sea Railroad train made its first journey to Key West on Jan. 12, 1912, literally connecting the previously isolated Florida Keys with the mainland for the first time, forever changing the face of the island chain.

Gaze at the fabled treasure of the galleon Atocha. Discover tomorrow's fine art treasures by Key West's well-known and unknown artists.

Adventurer Ponce de Leon discovered the Florida Keys including the Dry Tortugas in 1513. Today, as the Keys celebrate the 500th anniversary of that momentous event, Keys musician Howard Livingston performs his exuberant song showing why there's still so much "Magic in Key West."

Indulge in cinematic premieres, private film screenings and VIP parties at oceanside hotspots -- while listening to top emerging filmmakers' insights into their creations -- Nov. 13-17 at the second annual Key West Film Festival. Here, Kevin "Dot Com" Brown of "30 Rock" explains why there's no better place for film than America's elite southernmost island.

Big Pine Key is home to the National Key Deer RefugeThe Lower Keys begin where the Florida Keys island chain takes a graceful westerly turn toward the sunset, shortly after the famous Seven Mile Bridge. It is a quiet region of small resorts, down-home restaurants, single-family homes, untrammeled wildernesses and rich history.

Explore the National Key Deer Refuge, a large expanse of mostly undeveloped pine lands where the diminutive Key Deer live, or venture out to No Name Key.

Big Pine Key is home to the National Key Deer Refuge, where the majority of the Key Deer population can be found. As Key deer are endangered, many precautions have been taken to preserve as much Key Deer habitat as possible:

  • Signs are prominently placed along U.S. 1 (the Overseas Highway) to inform drivers that they are entering Key deer habitat, and warning them that feeding Key deer is prohibited
  • Approximately two miles of US 1 on the eastern end of Big Pine Key are elevated and fenced off to allow Key deer to pass under the road
  • The stretch of US 1 in Big Pine Key has a night-time speed limit of 35 miles per hour (as Key deer are most active at night) and the speed limits (45 MPH in the day) are "strictly enforced" according to signage

If you're looking for an off-shore adventure, Big Pine is also the jumping off point for numerous snorkeling and dive charters to Looe Key reef.

Come visit Big Pine & the Lower keys. Like all the Keys, you'll find it's rich in history.
