“key west Cemetery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

For those who like to visit cemeteries, this one is interesting. you can find a memorial for soldiers and different areas are for different faiths. A 20 minutes walk in the cemetery is sufficient to get a feel of the place.

“We have our spots picked out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The most unusual cemetery you will ever experience. Take the tour. The best tombstone engraving: "I told you I was sick".

“Peek into the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

When we visited on Sunday, the cemetery gate was open. There is a place to pick up maps in the building next to the gate, but they were all out of them this day. There are above ground graves as well as some in ground. Large military section honoring those who died when a boat sunk. Located in the historic part of town, surrounded by narrow streets with interesting houses.

“A bit o History - very interesting...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great activity when you need to get up out of that lounge chair and stretch your feet for a bit. Very interesting. If you are riding bikes it is a great little stop on your way somewhere.

“Not dog friendly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Most of Key West is very dog friendly. We thought the above ground cemetery would be a great place to explore, take pictures and walk for the dog. Because the Keys is so dog friendly, we had the dog with us most of the time. We get to the fence and large sign, No Dogs. In other words, if you have your dog with you don’t bother hiking to the cemetery.
