Car enthusiast on vacation: Key West
Just what is a car guy to do - in Key West
This is the start of a new article series I am starting. If you are reading this article, there is a very high chance are you are a car enthusiast. Sometimes you can be put in situations where it is harder to scratch your car enthusiast itch like say while on vacation, so I thought why not showcase just how you can do that at some of the locations I go tp vacation and make a guide out of it and grow it into a series - first up is Key West, Florida.
This one is really possible anywhere no matter if you are on vacation or your hometown, but in my case when I went down to Key West, Florida in November one particular vehicle caught my eye multiple times.
Saw three Suzuki Jimny (or whatever the many names it goes by) 2 door SUVs in short succession which made me begin to figure out just how can I obtain one myself and I knew if I lived in Key West it would be my daily.
This wasn't my first time in Key West, but in previous years I have seen many people showing off their exotic cars driving down Duval street and heck I even saw a street parked Lamborghini Gallardo once.
Drive by the "Southernmost" Point
Key West, Florida is home to the most southernmost point in the continental United States, but I will let you in on a little secret. You are really taking visiting the second southernmost point. The southernmost is actually on some Navy property that normal civilians cannot access (if you visit it is the point of land that has radar devices and looks like it houses Professor X's Cerebro in it. It isn't that big landmark that you can find tourists lined up down the street, but even so, you can drive by the "Southernmost" Point or as I like to call it, the second Southernmost Point.
Drive by Mile Marker 0
The United States highway US 1 goes from Key West to Maine. It runs over 2000 miles and its Mile Marker 0 is often a tourist photograph spot and you can simply drive and start your trek home or if you dare all the way to Maine.
