    If you want some quiet time and a place to look at beauty, this is the place to visit. It is located right near the southern most tip of the US, but tucked away in this quiet corner. The beauty here i...  more »

    I'm a butterfly gardener so I mostly went to see if I could spot any new (to me) butterflies. I live outside of Tampa, but it's amazing how many different butterflies one can see in South Florida. Fir...  more »

    “The greeter was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the walk especially the orchid garden. There was a visitor there with her bird in a stroller made it that much more special.”

    Breathtaking free gardens in an unfinished civil way fort. Definitely worth a thirty minute stop!

    Very nice, beautiful, usually quiet, pretty big (not huge) and best of all, free. They have a donations jar but I've never been pressured to use it. Can't think of anything bad to say about this place.

    I happened to walk past here once on a trip and I make it a stop every time I come now. This garden is unique for its setting and beautifully kept. You can also observe plenty of butterflies or sit in the shade on the old walls and watch the pelicans fish and the waves gently roll in. Admission is free but they accept donations which I think are more than warranted for what you get.

    Just a beautiful place with such cool history. We visit here every time we come to KW.

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
