With the end of the year comes the beginning of the holidays. And with the holidays comes family and friends, parties, food, gift giving, and much more. Although these are things to look forward to, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to pull them off without a hitch. If you want to truly take some time off and not worry about all the details that go into a flawless Christmas, taking holiday vacations with your loved ones every winter is the right choice for you.
Who doesn’t love going to the movies? The chance to get comfortable in the cushy theater seats, munch on a giant bucket of buttery popcorn and settle in front of the giant screen for a few hours and escape from reality is always alluring. Individual movies are tempting enough, but film festivals take all of that and ramp it up a few notches. Luckily enough, every November, Key West has its own festival to take advantage of.
Key West and Cuba have been closely linked throughout history, due to their geographical proximity and Cuba's fight for independence from Spain. Luckily, one of the fruits of this pairing is the rich Cuban cuisine in Key West, spawning several restaurants that dish up tostones rellenos, Cuban mix sandwiches, and more.
One of the most unique things to do in Key West is to visit Dry Tortugas, a Key West national park. This island park stands out because of its unusual land to water ratio: 1 percent land and 99 percent water. To get there, you’ll have to ferry, plane, or take your private boat, but the 70-mile commute from Key West is worth the turquoise water and wildlife sightings.
Famous for its white sandy beaches, clear blue waters, and local history, Key West is truly the vacation destination for anyone, with a little something for every type of traveler, especially the food lover. When you stay at Cabana Inn in Old Town Key West, you’ll not only be central to everything there is to do in this historic area, but you’ll be able to enjoy amazing Key West seafood restaurants and beautiful beaches.
A new idea has been conceived to make Key West genuinely magical, and when we say magical -- we mean it. The Key West Mermaid Festival, which is just a short trek from our inn at Key West, is the latest addition to our community that unites locals and tourists alike for great family fun.
