Key West Parks & Gardens
Daily tours of Fort Zachary Taylor are available, and show visitors how life was lived in the mid-1800s. Snorkelling off the coast will reveal live coral and a variety of sea life, and the sunsets over the Atlantic are legendary.
Take a day trip to Fort Jefferson Dry Tortugas National Park. Take a tour of the fort, or go snorkeling on the living reef in North America.
Visitors to Audobon House & Tropical Gardens can tour both the house, decorated in antique furnishings, and the gardens. Twenty-eight first editions of James John Audobon's works are in the house. Audio tours in English and Spanish are available.
Located in the historic district of Key West is this mini rain forest. Open daily, there is a small admission to tour the garden.
Seventy miles west of Key West, Dry Tortugas National Park offers tropical islands and coral reefs. Along with the natural beauty and wildlife attractions, the park presents Fort Jefferson, the largest American coastal fort of the 19th century.
