The first settlers arrived in Key West in 1521 and a fishing village and garrison were established as Florida was becoming a Spanish territory. The original Spanish word for the area is Cayo Hueso, which means “bone cay.” The island earned the nickname due to the littered bones of the previous inhabitants who had been using Key West as a communal graveyard. Despite the island's grisly history, it's now cherished as one of the premier vacation destinations in Florida, offering a Caribbean-style getaway without the need for a passport.

Today, you can wander around Key West and discover prime shopping opportunities on Duval Street, street performances in Mallory Square, and a variety of historic museums and nature conservatories to keep you busy for the duration of your stay. Whatever your reason for traveling to Key West, it's important to find the right accommodation that allows you to enjoy everything the island has to offer.

When to Visit Key West, FL

In terms of weather, there isn't a bad time to visit Key West. Temperatures are pleasant year-round, although summer is the island's rainy season. If you're willing to bring an umbrella and brave the showers, you can take advantage of discounted room rates from June to August. Expect temperatures to hover around the high 80s and low 90s.

Bargain hunters may also want to consider visiting from September to November. Fall is Key West's hurricane season, but most tourists simply head for higher ground if a storm approaches. Hotel rates are slashed due to the increased chances of hurricanes, but you can snag some unbelievable deals if you're up for the adventure. You'll also be here for popular fall events, including Key West Brewfest and Fantasy Fest Carnival.

Peak tourist season in Key West is in the wintertime from December to February. This is when travelers are trading northern snow showers for an ocean view and mid-70-degree temps. Winter is also a popular time because hurricane season is over, and several popular events take place, such as the Key West Food & Wine Festival. If you're looking to save money on your room, however, winter is the worst time to travel. Hotel rates are high and Key West is crowded, especially during the holidays.

Overall, the best time to visit Key West is in the early spring between March and May. Key West enjoys climbing temperatures and clear skies that make it the perfect time of year for an ocean getaway. Hotel rates are low and the island itself is too isolated for spring breakers. Plus, you'll get a chance to experience several festivals, including ConchFest, Conch Republic Independence Celebration, and Taste of Key West.

Which Key West hotels have real discounts?

Staying in Key West can get expensive, which is why it's a smart idea to be on the lookout for discounts. Seniors can take advantage of AARP discounts throughout Key West. In fact, many hotels offer AARP members 10 percent off their best available rates. Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn extends that same discount not only to AARP members, but also to members of the AAA Auto Club, COSTCO, and military, including veterans.

Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn, for instance, provides a discount to guests using a Harley Davidson card. If you're unsure what types of discounts your preferred accommodation provides, be sure to contact them prior to booking.

It's also a good idea to check on extended stay discounts. These vary by property, but you may be able to stay two nights and get the third night at half price, or stay ten nights and get one free.

An Insider’s Guide to Key West, FL

There's more to Key West than the side seen by tourists and cruise passengers. Key West is actually a combination of tropical island and small-town America, offering a vibrant culture all its own that's worth exploring as the locals do. If you're hoping to break from the masses during your stay here, skip the chain coffee houses and enjoy a café con leche at a Latino supermarket or coffee window. For some of the best snorkeling around, head to Fort Jefferson on the ferry or a 45-minute sea plane flight. If you can't live without your morning jog, run along the Old Seven Mile Bridge and you might spot some spotted eagle rays in the water below.

While Key West is known more for its coral reefs than its beaches, if you're missing out on lounging on sand, pay the small admission fee to get into Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. It boasts a beautiful beach with plenty of spots for fishing and snorkeling.

No matter your travel style, Key West offers a little something for everyone. Start planning your trip today!

A visit to Key West Recapped

Closer to the Cuban borders than to Florida's mainland, Key West often appears tenuously and partly attached to the rest of the United States. Its 30,000 islanders are famous for their laid-back lifestyle and tolerant attitudes, which often seem adrift in the panoramic combination of seas and skies. The area has been heavily revamped for the millions of tourists that visit per year. The streets are now barely recognizable; the mile-long pavements of Duval Street and Old Town's main promenade have been revitalized. Guests can take their time to explore the exotic blooms, tall skinny palms, and gnarled banyans that threaten to hide the city's faded wooden houses. If you're one of the million tourists, head to the museums first. The Wreckers Museum is the Oldest House in Key West, with displays of cargo obtained from sunken vessels and photographs of the area's heroes. Guests can also explore the tourist shops at Mallory Square, have a conch fritter and key lime pie, or visit the Bahamian Village, and find themselves similarly adrift and torn among the choices. In Key West, taking time is key.

Key West is very eclectic, laid back and fun, fun, fun!! I can't wait to go back. We were smiling ear to ear. The food is delicious and the drinks abundant! I suggest a Key Lime Colada at a little stand up bar on Duval. Yummy! Walk around, there is so much history. Rent a bike, or scooter, swim. I can't wait to go back and do more sightseeing as we pretty much ate, drank and shopped!
