Key West Maps and Orientation

(Key West, Florida - FL, USA)

Situated within the southerly Straits of Florida, the lengthy island of Key West resides at the far southern side of the famous Florida Keys. This small city is connected to the mainland state by the Overseas Highway (A1A), which links Big Pine Key, Marathon, Islamorada and Key Largo, before reaching the Southern Glades.

Although Key West is divided into a number of notable districts, the Old Town is where most tourists will find themselves spending time, with plenty of hotels, attractions, eateries, bars and shops being located here. The New Town tends to be where local businesses base themselves, being accompanied by a series of residential neighborhoods.

Getting around the center of Key West is really best done on foot, provided that you are not in a rush to hop between attractions and beaches. Maps can prove handy, although the gridwork of streets is really very organized and simple to navigate.

Maps and Orientation of the City

The northern shore is bounded by the North Roosevelt Boulevard (US-1), while the southern shore is partially lined by the South Roosevelt Boulevard, which passes by Key West's international airport and various hotels, such as the Best Western and the Hilton Grand Key Resort. The popular Smathers Beach also resides off the South Roosevelt Boulevard.

Another beach of great note is to be found within the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, on the far western side of the island. Further west and just a relatively short boat trip away is the secluded Key West National Wildlife Refuge, which makes for an interesting day out.
