Key West - a Paradise Island at the Southermost tip of the Continental US
June 23, 2019 | by Keith Bland

Whether it’s world-class deep sea fishing in the Florida Straits, fly fishing on the back country flats, diving or snorkeling the third largest barrier reef in the world and the largest in North America, taking a bike or walking tour of the Old Town Historic District, visiting one of the museums or galleries where…

unique local arts and culture are on display, enjoying a sunset sail on an historic schooner, dining in one of the fine restaurants, or shopping and imbibing on world famous Duval Street, Key West not only has something for everyone, but what is has is unique and unsurpassed.

As a visual artist, I chose to move to Key West 25 years ago primarily because of the warm weather, the radiant, year-round natural light, and brilliant color of the sea and sky. The majestic light is intensified by the reflection off the surrounding water and the silver metal roofs of the colorful historic homes. Plus, there were few other places in the U.S. where a bicycle is the only mode of transportation needed!

Key West is blessed with a local community that is diverse and creative with a sincere pride of place. That pride extends to protections and regulations of our built environment with a goal of not evolving into just another tourist town. We locals cherish our funky and diverse island cultural history and strive to leave Key West with all its fabulous resources and unique qualities for future generations to enjoy.
