The live web cam outside of Sloppy Joe’s Bar in Key West. This camera is stationary, and live 24/7, pointing to the sidewalk right outside of Sloppy Joe’s. Many people walk by and do not notice the camera pointing at the entrance.
You can also see the traffic on Duval Street.

The camera, located across the street from Sloppy Joe’s Bar, shows a live view of Duval Street in Key West, Florida. With this camera you can move the view – BUT ONLY if you are the primary viewer. This may be the most popular web cam during Fantasy Fest!
The photo below shows the actual location of the cam, which isn’t obvious to most of the people walking around Duval Street.
The months of August, September, and early October are considered Pre-Fantasy Fest. During this time the stores start posting information about the festival. Our photos are from Fairvilla, a popular place to buy Fantasy Fest supplies.

When you land in Key West and exit the lobby, you will usually see a few taxis waiting to bring you to your hotel for your stay. If there are no taxi cabs waiting, they can be there in 5 minutes with a quick call. Most likely they will already be there.
The lobby is very small – just get your luggage and hop in the taxi. The cost can vary – in 2014 the cost is $15-17, depending on how far you need to go.
Photos are from about 1 minute before landing in the Key West airport.

For a daytime/morning flight you can see the blue waters, sailboats, and partial above/below land.
In the distance you can see the other Florida Keys!
It is at this point you will hear the Prepare to Land instructions.
Our collection of sunset pictures taken in Florida. These are our favorite sunset pictures so far. Most were taken on the Gulf Coast of Florida. As we collect other sunset pictures we will add them to this collection.
And, yes, the sunsets in Florida are quite photogenic.
