Key West should be on every interior design and architecture enthusiast’s bucket list. Why? The climate and culture of Key West are evident in the forms and aesthetics of each building, making it a special destination to visit. One way to explore architecture and design here in Florida is to sign up for Key West tours, and specifically the Key West Home Tour. Let our team at Cabana Inn give you some background on these ever-changing Key West tours before you set out to explore.
About The Historic Key West Tours
The Old Island Restoration Foundation has put on the tour since 1960, making it the longest-running home tour in America. Each year, these Key West tours typically feature five homes and their gardens, each chosen for their design elements and decorations. Keep your eyes peeled for unique details, such as white picket fences, stained-glass windows, lanterns, vaulted ceilings, and even murals. This excursion can also be a Key West walking tour, as no transportation is offered from house to house. However, walking around town will allow you to see the surrounding neighborhoods of each house and their designs as well, so you’ll be grateful for the small bit of exercise.
Key West Inns and Accommodations
Save money by purchasing tickets in advance for these Key West tours. But if you don’t, know that your extra cash is going towards a good cause—as all proceeds stay in the community to uphold Key West’s “unique architecture, culture, and history,” and go to homeowners and nonprofits dedicated to the same goal. After touring several Key West homes, return to your room at the Cabana Inn and take advantage of the lagoon-style pool and jacuzzi to rest your legs and cool off after a day of walking.
