Key West

Attractions & Tours

Key West is only 4.2 square miles in size, but it is laden with history, art, fabulous architecture and the only living coral reef in the United States.  The Mermaid & The Alligator B&B is located in the heart of the historic down town and is close to the numerous tours and attractions



Key West is known around the world as a city rich in culture and diversity.  This is clearly exhibited in the plethora of fabulous restaurants that can be found on our little island.  We have put together a list of some of our all time favorites. We are happy to help you select your ‘new’ favorite restaurant and make dinner reservations for you.



Rich in history and beauty, come and explore…

A visitor need only meander on foot or bike down Old Town’s charming streets & lanes to discover 19th century Bahamian , Greek-Revival & Victorian mansions.  Many of these grand homes hold the stories of pirates, wreckers, writers, presidents and many more.   All attest to the diversity of the people who flourished here and left their mark on the character of the island, making it the distinctly unique city it is.


Weather & Climate

Key West has a notably mild, tropical climate.  It is the only city in the lower 48 states that has never experienced frost and, although cold fronts in winter months are not uncommon, January averages 70°F with temperatures rarely dropping below 50°.  The summer months bring heat and humidity, average high for a summer day is 89°F, but the ocean breezes temper the heat and the waters are an ideal temperature for water sports and exploration.
