if you get the book about the Keys and follow the directions to certain gravesites in the cemetery you can spend an hour or two wandering and getting a chuckle when reading the grave markers, cheap ($0.00) and entertaining.

While in Key West, we decided to rent bicycles as our mode of transportation, and I was a little shaky with the trike. We peddled into the town cemetery which provided a perfect practice area, full of paved paths, turns, and curves. What we discovered, too, was an interesting array of well-kept tombs and pretty gravestones. The air was cool... More

Loved the old head stones and all the character of the place. A must see just to step back and take a look at people from the past. The veterans area was very nice.

It was nice to see the cemetery, however it was a bit run Down. Not so beautiful and charming as the rest of the Island is. But it was fun to see how the chicken walked around,

This is where some of the bodies of the USS Maine tragedy are laid to rest. It is in the middle of the cemetery with a sailor statue and fences area. There are many large lizards residing in the cemetery so be aware of your surroundings. Also I had a homeless individual follow me around a bit before I felt... More

I love cemeteries because you can get a real feel for the history of where you are. This cemetery is very unique and sectioned.. Theres plenty of very old graves with stories behind them. Lots of graves with pictures too. The architecture is very interesting on a lot of them. Its worth a hour of exploring.

I stumbled upon the Key West Cemetery and found it an oddly fascinating place. Certainly not a pristine, well manicured place, but that was part of its 'charm'. The place is huge and every corner has something unique to look at. You could see this being the location of a great midnight, crescent-moon movie chiller. But the daytime gives you... More

Like most museums in a humid carribean climate, the Key West Cemetary is an above ground resting place, not unlike those in New Orleans. It could use a little love, with a lot of the headstones and gates in disrepair, as well as having been overrun with iquanas running everywhere. Still a nice place to stroll and see some of... More
