The literary name that’s most synonymous with Key West is, of course, Ernest Hemingway. His home on Whitehead Street, a French Colonial residence, is now a museum dedicated to his life and career. You can experience first hand the place where Hemingway — who would have celebrated his birthday last weekend, on July 21st — wrote such classics as The Snows of Kilimanjaro and To Have and Have Not. Fun fact: Several six- and seven-toed cats currently roam the grounds; they’re descendants of Hemingway’s beloved pet, Snow White, who had extra toes, too.
