“I would walk along the quais when I had finished work or when I was trying to think something out. It was easier to think if I was walking and doing something or seeing people doing something they understood.”
– Ernest Hemingway
Hemingway walked because he was a true islander. He knew that with 12 months a year of sunny weather, and so much to see and do, Key West is best enjoyed on foot. Sure, a lot has changed since those days, but one thing is still as true as ever – our little corner of paradise is made for walking.
Key West is only 4 miles by 2 miles. So with a good pair of walking shoes or a sturdy pair of flip-flops, nothing is really out of reach. Stroll up and down Duval Street (and, perhaps, make a few pub stops along the way). Or, wander into our cozy neighborhoods and side streets where the great history and architecture of Key West is revealed in sunny splendor.
