The Florida Keys is a group of islands off the southern tip of Florida. The largest among them is Key West, which also happens to serve as one of the largest tourist destinations in the Keys. Key West has a reputation for laid-back island living with an active nightlife. This reputation draws the attention of visitors looking for the ultimate in relaxation with an occasional bit of excitement thrown in.
Key West isn't just about stretching out on Higgs Beach, though. Visitors will find plenty of attractions, whether they want to explore the history of Key West through the Key West Shipwreck Museum or take a tour of the Harry S. Truman Little White House, once known as the Winter White House and used as recently as the Clinton administration.
One of the best times to visit Key West is during the off-season when the crowds thin out a bit and the prices drop. The off-season in Key West occurs during the hottest summer months, lasting from June to mid-August. The temperature tends to rise to average highs in the upper 80s, but it's the Florida humidity that visitors may find challenging. Summer thunderstorms are also frequent in the afternoons but are fortunately brief enough as to not ruin an entire day's sightseeing. Most attractions are still going strong during the off-season. June 6 to 10 is Key West Pride Week, featuring the regional symphony, film festival, bike tours and a street fair. July 17 to 22 is a celebration of Ernest Hemingway's time in town with the Key West Hemingway Days.
