Florida is one of the most beautiful and magical states in the U.S. Not only do you get to experience the warm tropical weather, but you also get to go on a memorable vacation while still being relatively close to home. In fact, if you are on the East Coast, it is one of the easiest tropical locales to access. Key West, particularly, is especially beautiful. Year-round, Key West's weather is jealousy-inducing for anyone that can't visit. This is especially the case in the wintertime. While your friends are freezing back home, you will be in jeans and t-shirts living it up, most likely on a boat. Before you visit Key West, you may want to think about writing out an itinerary that can help you map out and plan your trip.
