Great value, Popular with locals

A visit to Ernest Hemingway's tropical hideaway is a Key West must for a reason. To make the most of the experience, it's best to take the official tour: they start every 10 to 15 minutes, are led by a passionate (and boisterous) group of local literature lovers, and last about 30 minutes. If you don't have a half-hour to spare, you must at least make time to see Papa Hemingway's famous family of six-toed cats—there are about 40 to 50 of them—and his sons' room, where photos of the author on exotic vacations to Africa, Paris, and Cuba help to better contextualize his literary works.
