We had a morning to spend in this very southern city. Southern as in latitude. We toured the Little White House where Truman spent time during his presidency (if you are into touring presidential homes, I highly recommend this one). We also walked down to the Southernmost Point which is marked by a huge buoy (painted red, black, and yellow) where tourists can stand and get their pictures taken. I was pleased by the group of us there; we waited politely for our turns and the whole process went quite smoothly. We also toured Ernest Hemingway's Home (when he lived in Key West with wife number two, I think). I loved all the polydactyl cats roaming around. Be warned, if you want to see his studio, you need to be able to climb stairs. Additionally, only two or three people can actually look inside at a time, so there isn't a lot of viewing time.
We stopped at the Key West tourist info center before heading out on our journey. The attendant was very friendly and informative (received some coupons too).
