“Pick up the Guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I am so glad the grounds keeper told us about the map. It is a neat little brochure with a map of the cemetery and also interesting facts about symbols on the tombstones. It is a peaceful place to just roam. If you are from up North like us then it will interesting to see above the ground graves. Just a nice little side diversion to get away from the crowds.

I walked past this place many many times and always think of this cemertery as an art. Love how key west people even die with their humor on their tomb stones. Beautifful and interesting!

“Fun Day on Bikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Pull up the website and follow the tour. Many interesting sites in this historic spot.
No restroom and a long way to the next one. Ride your bike through the area.

“1st visit peaceful and interesting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Go to the web first to find locations and histories of graves. Away from the bussel and noise of old key west. Will be stopping again next visit.
