Everglades National Park is the largest designated sub-tropical wilderness reserve on the North American continent. Its juncture at the interface of temperate and sub-tropical America, fresh and brackish water, shallow bays and deeper coastal waters creates a complex of habitats supporting a high diversity of flora and fauna. It contains the largest mangrove ecosystem in the Western Hemisphere, the largest continuous stand of sawgrass prairie and the most significant breeding ground for wading birds in North America.

Hotellet vi bodde på.
Florida_Key_West
Søndag 11. juli 1993 satte vi oss i bilen og kjørte til Key West.
Vi overnattet der 1 natt.

Key West is an island in the Straits of Florida on the North American continent, at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys. The island is
about 90 miles (140 km) from
Cuba.

Key West is politically within the limits of the city of Key West, Monroe County, Florida, United States. The city also occupies portions of
nearby islands.

The island is about 4 miles (6.4 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide,
with a total land mass of 4.2 square miles.
Duval Street, its famous main street, is a mere 1.1 miles in length in its 14-block crossing from the
Gulf of Mexico to the Florida Straits/Atlantic Ocean. In the late 1950s, many of the large
salt ponds on the eastern side were filled in, nearly doubling the original land mass of the island. The island is 3,370 acres (13.6 km2) in area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_West

“See you at Sunset!” This iconic phrase has embodied the spirit and history of Key West since the event took off in the late 1960s! Beginning two hours before sunset, it’s a celebration and view that has captured the love and astonishment of iconic figures from Mark Twain in the 1800s to Tennessee Williams in the late 20th century!

The Key West Sunset Celebration invites everyone to partake in watching the glowing pink and red sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico horizon. The nightly festival hosts visitors from all over the world who come to take part in the magicians, jugglers, clowns, psychics, local musicians, artists, and food vendors that combine for an incredible cultural experience. It is a fusion of friends and talents that has captivated tourists and locals alike. This nightly party has everything any local or guest could ever hope to stumble upon. The beauty, sheer history, and pure passion of this event have been immortalized in renowned art, stories, poetry, and photography! http://www.mallorysquare.com/sunset-celebration
