    This is a former home of Harry S. Truman turned into a museum as he made 11 trips to this home in Key West, Florida. This museum is very interesting and educational as it looks at his private life behind the scenes. There are different tours available. Our tours guide was very knowledgeable sharing fascinating stories of Truman's life in Key West. His presidential limousine is on display outside for picture taking and available for a ride with the purchase of a different tour. There is a very nice gift shop. Worth the visit.

    My favorite beach in the whole world! My true happy place. When in Key West a must see. Admission is only $7 for 2 people, a great bargain. Nice bath house, concession stand and there are chair, umbrellas, and snorkel gear to rent. One of top 3 beaches in Key West.

    Duval Street has endless shops, historical sites, and restaurants to please every age. The atmosphere is one of celebration. Our guide told us that they believe in "one family" to celebrate the good in all people. Everyone was so friendly. Music fills the air as you walk past many open air pubs and eateries. Celebrate happiness on Duval. Wear comfortable shoes because you will want to walk all day so you don't miss a thing.

    The problem with the Overseas Highway is that the pictures you've seen that probably made you want to go were taken from the sky, where you can see it snake over the ocean and into the horizon. But the reality is, you'll probably be driving it, and behind traffic, and having to pay attention to not turning your car into a wildlife refuge at the bottom of the sea.

    The good news is, there's a section with a 2.3 mile foot path where you can park your car and walk it at your own pace to fully enjoy it. Outside of the famous seven-mile bridge, most of it is like any other highway and you can't even see the ocean.

    We really enjoyed this unique museum/ship tour. Highly recommend. However, you need to be able to go up and down steep ladders/stairs. I was surprised there was no warning about this before you started the tour.

    Every once in a while, TripAdvisor gets it exactly right, and this is one of those cases: The Southernmost Point of the Continental US is worth exactly 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great, if not obligatory, photo op - just be prepared to stand in line for a few minutes. It's not a mind-blowing experience, but it's a fun and easy bucket list item to check off.

    Loved the lighthouse and keeper's quarters museum. It was great to be able to see the actual quarters and climb to the top of the lighthouse. The view was amazing! The staff was very nice and informative. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. They offer a beautifully stocked gift shop with tons of items to choose from. Highly recommend!

    This is a lovely Catholic Church with a parking lot. No air conditioning. When it gets hot, the sides of the church are like shutters that open. The Sunday we were there, the male cantor did a great job leading us in prayerful song. He had a very nice voice.

    This is by far the best free attraction in Key West if you love nature. Pretty ocean views, plenty of resting spots to relax and enjoy the flowers. Friendly and informative staff.

    This is truly a hidden gem here in Key West, and one of my favorite places to go. The gardens are well tended, the fort makes an interesting backdrop, and there are amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of only a few places in Key West that are free! Take your lunch and a book, and go hide away for awhile!

    We enjoyed our visit to this small garden and house. It was lovely to see some original prints of Audobon's bird pictures and to read a bit more about the history of the house. Nice rocking chairs on the porch for relaxation!

    The bad reviews are people expecting shiny cleaned up things and chests of treasure. If you have a true and realistic interest in Florida shipwrecks and artifacts then you will enjoy this museum.

    We came here to see the funny epitaphs. It is a large cemetery - make your life easier and go to the main entrance and pick up a free map, otherwise you will be just wandering. We were able to bike around the cemetery to see most of the highlighted graves.
