Message from the Mayor of Key West
Hello and Welcome to the City of Key West,
As Mayor of Key West, I welcome you to our relaxing, peaceful island. After the past year, we all realize what a gift it is to call Key West our home, enjoying the simple pleasures of beautiful sunsets, calm crystal blue waters, magnificent art and history, and incredible live music by some of the most accomplished artists in the world.
Out of respect for our residents, employees, and other guests, please get vaccinated and follow the current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
Being a 2x4 mile island with daily sunshine and an average temperature of 77 degrees, Key West is a perfect Community to bike or walk to. Take the self-guided tour of Key West or hop on one of the Conch Trains or Trolleys to get an overview of all that Key West offers.
Nightlife in Key West is legendary, with some of the finest musicians in the world entertaining locals and our guests alike. Stroll our streets rich with art galleries, fine dining, theatre, wine bars, and unique shops. Hop on our free Duval Loop bus to enjoy the new Truman Waterfront Park or stroll the 15 blocks of our famous Duval Street.
Key West is surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Dive the Vandenberg or snorkel our coral reefs, charter a day of fishing, relax on one of our beaches, book an Eco tour and end your day with a beautiful sunset cruise. We are treated to the talented Sunset Celebration performers on Mallory Square each evening while enjoying a spectacular sunset. Remember that we are an environmentally sensitive island, so please treat our island with respect for generations to come.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our island and all that we offer. Please feel free to visit us at City Hall at 1300 White Street in the heart of Key West.
With Warmest Regards,
Mayor Teri Johnston
