A change of pace for Key West

The wild life is running all over the cemetery. A cool place to take a break and read the stones. Make sure the Cuban and USS Maine areas are visited.

Interesting to walk around. Though, please not ground very uneven and no real paths to speak of. I've seen better by far, but it you are bored, and it is free....

This is the place to go to see iguanas. They are everywhere walking around and sun bathing. There's a pamplet that explains the different sections of the cemetery. Very interesting

Drove thru via electric car. It's a uniquely beautiful OLD cemetery with iguanas roaming the grounds. We tried to go thru at night but it was closed. Definitely ride or walk thru, it's intriguing to see tombstones from the 1800's and early 1900's.

We thought that the cemetery was a great start to our day in Key West. It was already rather warm around 10am, so I'm glad we didn't leave it to the more extreme afternoon. My highlight was the USS Maine memorial. There is an easy to find map and guide on the Key West tourist site.

This is one of the more unusual and peculiar cemeteries to visit. Many of the headstones are unusual, and I don't understand why so many children were buried here but that is rather sad. Large iguanas roam about everywhere. Many Arlington style military headstones here which I thought was unusual as well.

Rode our bikes through. Very interesting. Cool place to check out. Be sure and get a map. Don't miss the Veteran's section.

This cemetery is very interesting with many spots to explore. The members of Maine are buried there, as well as the famous "I told you I was sick."
