“KEY WEST,” the words themselves taste like salty air, cold daiquiris and sun-brilliant adventure. The Coconut Republic is one of those rare iconic destinations where the reality matches the myth. Drop whatever you are doing, and plan a vacation to Key West. Everything you love about Key West is just as it should be. Hurricane Irma, amazingly, passed the historic vacation spot by, doing relatively little damage, before hammering the keys a few dozen miles to the north. And what damage was done is already fixed, repaired and restored. Believe me; Key West is open for business.
