Mid Town Vacation Rentals
This residential neighborhood starts at the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and stretches inward to about the island’s midpoint. Midtown and the New Town area next to it were created in the 1940s and 50s using dredged landfill that more than doubled the size of the island. The additional space meant streets, homes, and yards could be a bit larger. Most of the Midtown homes are occupied by Key West locals who know a good thing when they see it. The typical Florida architecture that abounds is Mid-Century modern. Much of this area is within walking distance of warm sand beaches, and Old Town’s social and arts scene is easily accessible by bike, scooter, pedicab, city bus, or trolley. Within Midtown itself, it’s easy to enjoy a breathtaking sunrise, gawk at a sky full of water birds, ride along tropical bike paths, take a dip in the ocean, or just lounge where you are and enjoy that special “got away from it all” feeling.
