Car Rental Key West

About Key West, Florida

Key West is a city on an island of the same name in the Straits of Florida in the United States. Located in the far south of the Florida Keys, it is roughly 140km from Cuba and 261km from Miami. The city also takes up parts of neighbouring islands. The island of Key West is 6.4km long and 1.6km wide.

The name of the island derives from Cayo Hueso, the original Spanish name, which is still used by Spanish speakers. It literally means "Bone Island" or "Bone Cay" (a low-lying island). According to legend, the island was scattered with bones from a Native American battlefield or burial ground. The island almost doubled in size in the late 1950s, when many of the large salt ponds on the eastern side were reclaimed.

The conversion of the former railroad into a highway in 1938 made the island accessible by car. That road is now an extension of United States Highway 1, called the Overseas Highway. Renting a car in Key West means you can explore this quirky outpost of sunshine, laid-back lifestyles, and beautiful coastal scenery. Go snorkelling, discover the islands' association with Ernest Hemingway, and soak up the mellow atmosphere.
