We looked for the "main attractions," the headstones and tombs that had unique inscriptions. you can easily google the highlights and get a map.

We slowly road our bikes through the cemetery, reading so many of the odd and interesting epitaphs. I found it odd that so many of the graves were in such disrepair, I am surprised the city doesn't take better care of the cemetery, but we did enjoy looking at the numerous different types of crypts, tombs and reading the inscriptions.

My wife and I get to the Keys as often as we can and one of our highlights is spending time strolling through the Key West Cemetery. There is such a deep history revealed walking through this beautiful location and you learn a lot about the times, people and diversity of this great Island Nation know as the Conch Republic....

I was certainly not the first time that I have visited this cemetery. It is a special place and you can see lots of the history of Key West. At the same time the cemetary is cultural heritage and - in comparison to similar places in New Orleans, free of charge. The place is reasonably kept (old graveyards should not... More

Our local friend took us here. What a great spot but I am one who loves to visit cemeteries everywhere i go. Lots of history. We were told, DONT DISTURB anything - it is bad luck. Check out the nasty stuffed bunny. Well worth a visit, lots of people were bike riding through.

Could not find anything really interesting or worth to visit. Would not spend time there, especially in a hot day.

I was SO interesting to see all the coffins on top of each other due to hardly any sea level so they can't go underground. With that said... SO SAD to see that it's not taken care of AT ALL! Head stones cracked down the middle. Some coffins almost laying to the side... Well here's some pics to see for... More

Some may think that it is morbid to tour a cemetery, but the set up with the graves above ground and the grounds itself are very interesting.

I've never been to a New Orleans cemetery, but it kind of reminded me of it. I had rented a scooter and probably rode around the cemetery like 4 times throughout my stay in Key West.
