Key West Harbour, Florida
Key West Harbour
West, which is the county seat of Monroe, is
an island in the southernmost part of the
Florida Keys. In the Continental United
States, Key West is the southernmost city.
The State Road A!A, the US 1 and the East
Coast Greenway all terminate at Key West.
The city was originally calles Cayo Hueso,
which means "bone key". The name was coined
because, according to some historians, Key
Stone used to be an Indian battlefield that
turned into burial grounds. The name "Cayo
Hueso" is still being used by many
establishments and offices in the city.
Today, the island is a popular destination for passenger
cruise ships. Many tourists come to Key West
through the harbor. In addition, the Key
West International Airport also provides
airline service to and from the city. Duval
Street, Truman Avenue and a large part of
northwest portion of the island along
Simonton, Whitehead, Greene, Front, Caroline
and Eaton Streets make up Key West's
bustling central business district. Duval
street is home to several restaurants
including Sloppy Joe's, Captain Tony's
Salmon, Durty HArry's, Hard Rock Cafe, Lazy
Gecko and Flying Monkeys.
A popular Key West attraction is the Key
West Harbor Inn, which offers a breathtaking
view of the harbor. From the luxurious inn,
guests can watch ship sails towards the
horizon against magnificent golden sunsets.
