Step back in time and visit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum on Whitehead Street in Old Town Key West. This unique space was home and inspiration to Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway for over 10 years. Upon discovering Key West Hemingway claimed, "It’s the best place I’ve ever been anytime, anywhere, flowers, tamarind trees, guava trees, coconut palms...Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks." After touring the legendary author’s home, head on over to Margaritaville, you won't find absinthe, but you will find a cool boat drink…
