Key West Historic Seaport District

Since the middle of the 19th century, the seaport has been the center of economic and marine activity in Key West. Before it became a cultural gathering place and boat marina, it was a commercial hub for delivering fresh fish, sponge, and shrimp to Florida. In 1992, the seaport was acquired by the city and developed into a popular destination for tourists and locals to enjoy. Today, you can find everything from boat charters and local art galleries to restaurants with live entertainment.
