The islands of the Florida Keys salute diversity and the subtropical island of Key West is internationally known as one of the world’s top LGBT holiday choices.
And that’s no surprise, because this two-by-four-mile island has a rich history of alternative lifestyles. It once was a renegade seaport. It’s been a haven for Caribbean pirates, Prohibition-era rumrunners and literary luminaries like Tennessee Williams and Ernest Hemingway.
Long known as a “gay mecca,” the city of Key West proudly adopted “One Human Family” as its official philosophy in 2000 — a move soon followed by government leaders for the entire Florida Keys island chain.
Today the reasons for the island’s appeal are many. Key West promises sensational sunning opportunities and Caribbean-like cruising weather almost 365 days a year.
Our honeymoon prize includes two return flights to Miami from Dublin, eight days’ car rental, three nights’ accommodation at Cheeca Lodge & Spa in Islamorada and four nights at the Lighthouse Court in Key West.
