Key West is an amazingly fun place. The people are all so friendly and there are many things there that attract the whole family. From morning until the beautiful sunset viewing, the island has so many different things that entertain. You can fish, you can snorkel or dive, you can ride bikes. The natural and historic attractions have appeal to all ages.

The sunset gatherings were very fun. There are entertainers and food vendors as well as musicians and art/gift tents. There's something for everyone.
