The Key West Resort is just one of many new projects in downtown making Tavares one of the fasting growing Entertainment Districts in the area. Visitors here have an abundance of activities from which to choose. From jet ski and boat rentals to jumping on the Orange Blossom Cannonball steam engine into historic Mt. Dora for shopping and sight-seeing, there is plenty to see and do.

“This area is perfect for our brand. Located on the water, shops and restaurants in walking distance and the fact that you are allowed to stroll the town with adult beverages in hand just screams Key West,” Amanda Belmonte commented.

The Resort is under lease and management with Alex Cooke. “Joining the Key West franchise is giving us the exposure we need to make this property successful,” said Cooke.
