Delve into Key West’s past

Key West is famed for his colorful history and cultural diversity. It’s home to shipwreck artifacts, literary legends, celebrated artists, and a previously bustling seaport, all beautifully preserved and showcased throughout the city’s fine collection of museums. Among the most popular are the Key West Shipwreck Museum, Ernest Hemingway House, Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Museum, and the Martello Gallery – Key West Art and Historical Museum, and they all make fascinating places to explore.

Sail away and find your catch

Leave the crowds behind as you sail through the calm waters surrounding Key West with highly-skilled offshore captains. You can explore the Florida Straits, a 90-mile wide trough of deep water beyond the reef that Hemingway once described as “the Great Blue River.” Swimming all around Key West is a rich abundance of fish including snappers and groupers that inhabit the island’s shipwrecks, reefs and back-country channels, making a day’s fishing trip so rewarding.

 

Music to your ears

Music underpins some of the best memories you’ll take away with you following your vacation, and in Key West there are live music venues round every corner that are sure to get your toes tapping and help you relax. The island’s streets carry a diverse blend of sound in the air, from jazz and blues, to country and western and calypso, making sure you’ll be spoiled for choice in your quest to unwind.

Breathtaking natural beauty

Be prepared to look around in awe as the beauty of Key West’s natural world unfolds before you. With our onsite concierge team, active seniors can take your pick from a range of water-based activities including kayaking and snorkeling, so you can explore the wonders of the ocean at your leisure. Back on dry land, Key West is teeming with places to enjoy natural beauty and the island’s renowned sunsets will no doubt  become your favorite part of the day. Head to Mallory Square for the best views and join the Sunset Celebration which takes place every night. Here you’ll find a festival atmosphere as visitors and locals alike all gather to watch the sparkling sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico. Don’t forget to stop by Key West’s Butterfly Conservatory for one last glimpse of the city’s majestic beauty.

Theatrical delights

Yet another jewel in Key West’s crown is The Waterfront Playhouse, named by Florida Monthly Magazine as ‘the best professional theater in Florida’. For over 70 years, locals and tourists have been treated to a diverse program of productions in this intimate, 150-seat theater which is well-positioned in Mallory Square where the Sunset Celebration adds to the dramatic atmosphere.

Parrot Key Resort for Seniors
