Hemingway Tips (5)

Hemingways house

Well, i mean if you go you might as well see this. It is a pretty house, but its just that, a house!
The guide person did say that it is the only house on the island with a basement due to Key West being solid rock underneath. Little bit of info for ya!

The biggest torist trap in Key West is....

What Key West page will be complete without mentioning Sloppy Joe's. I will just do it int the tourist trap section. They are still raking in the bucks on the coat tails of Hemingway. But it is still a good watering hole. Around the corner from here there is a place that claims to be the "ORIGINAL SLOPPY JOE" Ayyiii.
If you're lucky, you'll catch a wet T-Shirt contest. Ladies, be ready, it is open to amateurs. But beware, I think some ringers sneak in now and then. You know what I mean. No amateur can look that good.

Unique Suggestions It is still a good stop, albeit, crowded.

Touring the Hemingway house ....

Touring the Hemingway house . . . I don't want to make any Kew Westerner's mad, but it just isn't worth it to me . . . Why not visit Hemingway's local hang out instead, Captain Tony's Saloon, and raise your glass in a toast to Hemingway . . . If you are going to see the cats, just look around, you will find one!

Here's the front of Hemingway's house. As I recall they don't allow you to take pictures once you're inside.

Okay, one of the 'must see'...

Okay, one of the 'must see' things when in Key West is to see Ernest Hemingway's home. But there really wasn't much to see.
