July tips, weather, and events

During the month of Ernest Hemingway’s birth (in 1898), Key West pays tribute to the literary personality with readings, sport fishing events, exhibits, and—in true local style—a funny Hemingway lookalike contest. A newer event is the Key Lime Festival, celebrating the little green citrus fruit with a flavor all its own. If you’ve never experienced key lime pie, this is the time! And if you have, well then you know what’s good. Come on down and have some slices with us.
