Tripadvisor Names Key West Among Top 10 U.S. Destinations
KEY WEST, Florida Keys - Tripadvisor has named Key West among the 10 most popular domestic visitor destinations in its 2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best awards.
Key West ranks seventh on the roster of the United States' domestic destinations. It is one of three Florida cities listed among Tripadvisor's top 25, with Miami Beach ranked fifth and St. Augustine 19th. New York City claimed the number-one spot on the prestigious list.
"Key West offers a laid-back and warm embrace to its visitors - an atmosphere and a welcome that continue to draw people from around the U.S. and the world to share that experience," said Stacey Mitchell, director of the Florida Keys tourism council.
Tripadvisor's awards listing praised Key West for its refreshingly slow pace, history as a haven for U.S. presidents and literary legends Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, exceptional diving and the kid-friendly Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center.
The Travelers' Choice Best of the Best awards are the highest honors bestowed by Tripadvisor, billed as the world's largest travel guidance platform. Award winners are selected annually based on millions of reviews and opinions collected from travelers around the world.
