Ensconce yourself within the ocean-inspired design of our rooms while looking out over the harbor and pools from your private balcony.
A stone's throw away from our Harbor Resort is the most picturesque insta-worthy sites and best photo locations in Key West. While the island offers many photo-worthy opportunities, we wanted to add a few more ideas to the list, including fishing, food, and fun! Here’s your guide to eight Instagram-worthy views to help you out.
Local Art at The Marker
Let’s start right here at The Marker Harbor Resort, where we embrace local artists who embody the essence of Key West. Upon arriving at our resort, you will spot the vibrant installation, “5 Watchers” by Key West Pottery’s Adam Russell.

“This was the beginning of what has become known as the “Watchover” series...
Inspired by old weathered dock ties and buoys out in the ocean above the flat horizon. Each vertical column is occupied by some clever waterfowl...Saving his energy and watching over the surrounds for his next dive opportunity...as anyone on the coast can observe every day of the year.” ~ Adam Russell, @keywestpottery

You don’t have to go far to capture this photo-worthy postcard from paradise. The “Greetings from Key West, Florida” Mural is steps from our resort located at 284 Margaret Street.
Mile Marker Zero Sign

The sign says it all and is one of the most sought after photos visitors like to check off the list while on vacay. Located at the corner of Fleming and Whitehead Street is where you’ll find the Mile Marker Zero Sign. Why so popular? This sign marks the end (or the beginning) of US 1, and the other sign is located in Fort Kent in Maine. It’s one of the most famous mile markers of the Country. So when you visit, make sure to get a photo in front of this famous sign. It’s proof you’ve made it to the end of the road.
Catch of the Day
