The ship docks at the Hilton Marina in Key West, the southernmost point of the continental United States, and located closer to Cuba than Miami. Shop and stroll through hundred-year-old gingerbread Victorian cottages surrounded by swaying palm trees. Check out the beautiful lighthouse, the street performers and the vibrant nightlife along Duval Street. This southernmost point in the continental United States is part Bahamian village, part historical landmark.

It has been said that the idiosyncratic architecture and the laid-back atmosphere of this small, two-by-four-mile island probably have nurtured the talents of more writers per capita than any other city in the country. More than 100 published authors reside, full- or part-time, in Key West, and the island is noted for its artistic community with a number of galleries exhibiting artwork in varying styles and mediums.

At day’s end in Key West, visitors gather at Mallory Square to experience the daily "sunset celebration" - a tradition that Key Westers share with visitors. While musicians, jugglers, mimes and other performers provide entertainment, the sun sinks slowly below the horizon as sunset cruise boats sail by in Key West Harbor.

Dining opportunities in the island city are as enticing as the sunset. Cuisine choices are varied and unique, but most restaurants feature great area seafood such as shrimp, Florida lobster, conch chowder, local fish and stone crab claws. Key lime pie is a heavenly end to an exquisite meal.
