An absolute must-see for everyone who visits Key West is the home of Ernest Hemingway and his ”home away from home” Sloppy Joe’s Bar. You will be met pier side by your professional guide to begin a leisurely stroll throughout old town Key West. Along the way you will see and learn about the Truman Little White House, Bahama Village, the Straw Market and the Key West Lighthouse. Your guide will transport you to 1930’s Key West where Hemingway wrote some of his best work. At the museum your guided tour includes the home and beautiful gardens along with a chance to visit with the current residents - the six toed cats. These famous felines are descendants of Hemingway’s original pets. Next, we make our way to Hemingway’s favorite haunt - Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Here you will tour the historic building, learn of Hemingway’s more infamous past, and see some fascinating memorabilia. The tour concludes with the option to return to the cruise ship pier with your guide or enjoy your remaining free time downtown.
