Looking for that historic charm that brought writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams to this unique town? Look no further than the Old Town Area of Key West. Located South of White Street, this area is known for it’s mix of historic homes with unique charm as well as the fun energy of downtown Key West.
Old Town is the perfect mix of locally owned stores, fun bars, and an impressive restaurant scene that only continues to get better. While nightlife and tourism is centrally located primarily on Duval Street, the area is filled with historic Key West homes ranging from small condos with a charming Caribbean and Southern influence as well as the most impressive Historical homes renovated to the tastes of even the most discerning buyers.
Stroll along the main streets of Old Town or take a turn and walk down the side streets of Key West, history is everywhere you turn. From the Truman Little White House where Harry S. Truman used to vacation during his presidency, to the Hemingway House on Whitehead Street where the infamous writer built a boxing ring in his backyard, the character this town exudes can easily compete with the likes of New Orleans or Boston.
