After Hurricane Irma, so many people in Key West have banded together to prove their strength, resilience, and love for their communities.
Airports have resumed operations, U.S. Highway 1 has been repaired, and the Keys officially reopened for visitors on Oct. 1—almost three weeks ahead of schedule.
Our local Vacasa team in Key West has been a major part of the disaster response and recovery efforts, and shared these photos with us yesterday of life in Key West returning to normal.
1. The Conch Train is now up and running.
2. You still have to wait in line to get into the Hemingway House…
3. …and the Hemingway House cats haven’t stopped sleeping.
4. These two aren’t ending their iconic embrace outside the Custom House anytime soon.
5. Huge cruise ships still dock daily in Mallory Square.
6. And it’s still the best place to watch the sunset…
7. …unless you can get your hands on a boat.
8. And, finally, what would a night out in Key West be without Sloppy Joe’s open for business?
