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.
You'll get in some beach time at Fort Zachary Taylor and Higgs Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and Truman Little White House. Next up on the itinerary: take a tour by water with Fury Water Adventures Key West, glide through the air with Sebago Key West, explore the world behind art at Fort East Martello Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Smathers Beach.
