Exploring the island on foot is one of the best way, where you can take your time and see it's true beauty. You can join a guided walk through the historic part of Key West to learn about the history and see the sights and landmarks, do-it-yourself guided tour with the Pelican Path Guide or attend one of the fun themed walks like Pub Crawl or Scavenger Hunt.
Where did Key West got its name from? Cayo Hueso (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkaʝo ˈweso]) is the original Spanish name for the island of Key West. Spanish-speaking people today also use the term when referring to Key West. It literally means "bone cay (a low island or reef)".
