The southernmost city in mainland USA, Key West is a city and island located in Florida. A playground for the rich and famous, Key West is a tropical paradise, with stunning scenery and rarely a cold day throughout the year. A place where virtually every road is a scenic drive, Key West is a perfect destination for travelling by a rental car. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Key West, Florida, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Key West is both easy and economical.
Connected to the mainland USA by the Overseas Highway, Key West can be driven to from south of Miami, or if you are arriving by flight or cruise ship, you can collect your rental upon arrival and be on your way!
The heart of the city is a plaza located in the northwest of the island, known as Mallory Square. A visit here is a must when in Key West, particularly in the hours just before dark when the daily Sunset Celebration takes place. Expect street performers, art and craft stalls, and lots of fellow travellers.
Right beside the square, you can visit another great attraction, the Key West Shipwreck Museum. The area once thrived on salvaging good from shipwrecks that happened nearby almost weekly and the museum tells the history of the wrecking crews. Be sure to climb the lookout tower for a great view of the city and surrounding waters.
For a different kind of historic attraction, drive your rental car towards the south of the island, where you can visit the home of Ernest Hemingway, arguably one of the most famous people to have lived here. Just a few blocks further south from here you can check out another unique place, the southernmost point of mainland USA. And when you feel you have seen enough of the sites, you can choose from a great range of activities such as snorkelling, fishing and sailing, or perhaps just kick back and relax on the beach!
