Our last leg of the road trip was Key West, the last town at the tip of Florida Keys. A quaint little town were people come to celebrate the sunset. You can literally walk the length and breadth of this town. This is the southern tip of Continental USA.
We reached late in the evening so we headed straight for the Malory Square were all the visitors congregate to celebrate the sunset.
You can watch street performers keeping the visitors engaged prior to the sunset. This is also a nice place to watch people and engage in street photography.
As the sunset approached, the entire mood around here got vibrant. People were out in the sea positioning themselves for the sunset.
Those at shore also maneuvered themselves into advantageous position to witness the sunset. There was anticipation and excitement in the air awaiting the sunset.
During your visit, do make it a point to walk the Duval Street. This is the most happening place here, strewn with bars, restaurants and curio & gift shops. You can also see many old time architecture around here.
If you have time to spare, do make a visit to Hemingway House and the butterfly garden. Both are unique and worth a visit.
Hemingway House, this is were the noble laureate wrote books such as “ Fare well to Arms” and “The old man and the sea”. You can also spot many decedents of famous Hemingway Cats who are well cared for.
I found this butterfly garden very exciting.
The visit here was the grand finale of our road trip across Florida. The most exciting and enduring part of our trip was driving back to Atlanta, a distance of 786 miles in one go made possible by grit, determination and stamina of my lovely daughter Shruti who drove for 18 hours to accomplish this feat.
