“Show me my path. Teach me along the way. Direct my anger. Grant me peace. Sustain my hope. Let me laugh.”
Be strong today for we will reap if we do not grow weary.

The Key West mystique
We believe there really is such a thing as the Key West state of mind. We believe that whether you were born here or first met Key West in 1970 or just a few weeks ago, those who love the island will never stray far. Preserving and enhancing that Key West mystique sustains our island home forever.
