Key West is the final stop on the Overseas Highway, where the land ends and meets the sea amid 19th-century charm and 20th-century attractions. The ambiance of the nation's southernmost city - which is situated closer to Havana than Miami - is embedded in the quaint, palm-studded streets, historic gingerbread mansions built a century ago and a relaxed citizenry of self-styled "Conchs".
At day's end, visitors gather at Mallory Square to "call it a day." Hardly a contrived activity, the daily "sunset celebration" is a tradition that Key Westers share with visitors. While musicians, jugglers, mimes, an occasional fire-eater and even the Key West Cookie Lady provide entertainment, the sun sinks slowly below the horizon. And, if the sunset is good enough, the audience respectfully applauds. Nightlife in the "Southernmost City in the Continental United States" features a plethora of restaurants and taverns.
