Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum
In the 1930s, Ernest Hemingway made Key West his home. Some say it was the idyllic setting of Key West that inspired him to write classics like For Whom the Bell Tolls, To Have and Have Not, and A Farewell to Arms from the privacy of his second-story writing room. Others say it was sheer coincidence. Regardless, the works earned him the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.
Today, his former home is a museum whose popularity often results in crowded tours—but it’s considered a Key West must. Stroll the grounds for a more peaceful experience and to see descendants of Hemingway’s legendary six-toed cats. Note that the museum is a cash-only enterprise.
