Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
Step out of the city life by going to Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory and Fort Zachary Taylor. You'll get in some beach time at Smathers Beach and Dog Beach. And it doesn't end there: stroll the grounds of Key West Cemetery, tour the pleasant surroundings at Simonton Street Beach, and kick back and relax at South Beach.

To find photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, use the Key West trip itinerary planning website.
