The Florida Keys are connected by bridges and causeways and each Key, or island, is very different from the next.

Car rentals are available at all major airports including Key West. If you are staying in the downtown area of Key West you may be better off not renting a car as parking is limited.

New Year's Eve Shoe Drop Celebration

The Southernmost City celebrates with a descending 6-foot red high heel shoe carrying drag queen Sushi at the Bourbon Street Pub/New Orleans House complex, 724 Duval St. Seconds before midnight, the high heel bearing a lavishly gowned and coiffed Sushi is to be lowered from the second-story balcony of the complex toward the cheering crowds below.
