The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is the only 'frost-free' botanical garden in the continental United States and offers a chance to learn about native flora and fauna of the Florida Keys.

The entire site covers approximately 15 acres which varies from dense forest to open ponds and gardens. There are 12 trails in the Key West Tropical Forest each one averaging less than 1/10 mile.
