Harry S. Truman Little White House which includes a house and cycling

The winter residence of a former president and a historic lighthouse are among the attractions complementing this area’s charming Caribbean vibe.

Bahama Village is a quaint and historic part of Key West, with markets and shopping streets. Its name references the origins of the area’s initial residents, whose families came from The Bahamas and other parts of the Caribbean. Visit Bahama Village to get insights into the Caribbean roots of the area through its food and neighborhood market stalls.

Enjoy traditional culinary treasures at the iconic Blue Heaven restaurant, which famously held boxing matches refereed by writer Ernest Hemingway.

Try the many other restaurants and bars, with terraces allowing guests to watch people walk along the enchanting, narrow alleys of Bahama Village.

Rummage through the various kiosks and stalls of a flea market to find souvenirs and handicrafts.

Among the architectural highlights of Bahama Village is Jackson Square, a grassy tree-lined space just in front of a set of colorful historic buildings and a market.

Head toward the scenic coastline to reach the Harry S. Truman Little White House, which its namesake president used as a winter residence. Now a museum, it has a range of intriguing documents about Truman and his stays here.

Visit the Key West Lighthouse, which was built in 1825 to help vessels navigate the treacherous reefs of the Florida Keys. Climb its 88 iron steps to reach the top and enjoy views of the rest of the island. It also has a Keeper’s Quarters, containing nautical relics and period décor.

Attend the annual Bahama Village Goombay Festival in October to celebrate the area’s Caribbean traditions. The event features marching bands, dancing and delicious Bahamian food.

Perched on the western edge of the city of Key West, Bahama Village is one of the westernmost parts of the Florida Keys. Find it near the southwestern corner of the Key West Historic District. From the New Town zone, travel by bus on the Green or Red line west to the Petronia & Whitehead stop and get around on foot.
