A mojito with a view at Louie's Backyard.
Key West is one of the most awesome places on the planet. Many people come here to visit and never leave. At one point in time, it was the richest per capita spot in the U.S., thanks to the wrecking business. As a passing point between the Caribbean and Latin America by the Florida Straits, Key West has seen its rich share of history and characters. Tiny but full of spunk (and no, not that kind, you mongrel), Key West has a charm and hospitality all its own. Never mind the tshirt shops on Duval Street or the college kids at the bars -- there's something here for all jaded adults to unwind and have fun without the pressure and plastic of South Beach.
The south easternmost point of the continental U.S. is actually in Elliott Key near Miami. But this year, we'll be at the southernmost point of all.
Here are some morsels:

And don't forget the official Florida Keys Visitor's site for more information.
