Sometimes, Floridians forget that they live in one of the most exotic areas of the United States. The sunshine state is home to wild flamingos, 99 orchid species, cold-water springs, sandy beaches and palm trees. With lands as varied and beautiful as Florida, who needs to cross state lines for a vacation?
Florida residents can take advantage of all the beauty of their backyard by visiting Key West - the southernmost island of the Florida Keys!
At 24 North Hotel, Floridians can enjoy 20 percent off their hotel stay by booking with the Florida Residents Escape package! All you’ll need is a Florida resident ID to qualify for the discount.
Key West has a little bit of everything for every kind of traveler. Its peculiar history is exhibited in local museums, from shipwreck treasures to remnants of old Cuban cigar factories. It was home to the late American author Ernest Hemingway, whose old house on Whitehead Street has been converted into a museum that’s occupied by 50-plus six-toed cats (more on the cats here).
It’s also home to a Civil War-era Fort Zachary Taylor, located on the western end of the island. You can hike trails in the state park, tour the fort, snorkel the nearby waters, and see if you can spot iguanas sunning themselves.
Aside from its history, Key West has views for days – of the Caribbean Sea and Florida Straits. Lay out on the sandy shore of Smathers Beach, where you can rent a jet ski or another PWC to explore the island’s surrounding waters.
Let's not forget one of Key West’s main attractions: its wild nightlife. Duval Street is home to a variety of bars that entertain guests with live music, drag queen shows, and drink specials. There’s never a dull moment on Duval Street, and annual festivals bring in lively parades and unforgettable street parties.
So, Florida residents, what are you waiting for? You’re living in paradise, so get out and enjoy it. Book with our Florida Residents Escape deal and enjoy a 20% discount on the best available rate today!
