2) Key West
On the surface, Key West is a tropical paradise with beautiful white-sand beaches and palm trees galore. Dig a little bit deeper and you’ll find its beauty is not only skin deep. There’s a deep history that’s worth exploring. Start with Ernest Hemingway’s house, where he resided with his wife in the 1930s. Tour the museum and see Hemingway’s personal items and the studio where he crafted the novel “To Have and Have Not.” Once you’ve got your dose of history, head to Mallory Square for the “Sunset Celebration.” Facing the Gulf of Mexico, this is a favorite place to watch the sun go down. Every day tourists flock to sample the food carts, enjoy music and street entertainment, and browse arts and crafts booths. Feel like splurging? Rent a boat for island hopping tours, camping, sunset cruises, snorkeling, fishing, and more.
