If you can make it up the steps you will be treated to a fantastic panoramic view of Key West and surrounding waters. It's a great way to get your bearings in town.

“Must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Visit the tower of KW for an unforgettable view of Mallory Square, Sunset Key, the Westin Pier, Whitehead St. and a part of Duval St.
It's made of wood, access through the Shipwreck Museum.
It's not exactly cheap, but it's worth it. I thing it's $7. Much more interesting than the Museum itself IMO.
