If you like gardens or old forts then you'll love the West Martello Tower. Also some great photo ops there! A great place to stop by on your way to Smather's Beach. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.

We spent about one hour there walking around the gardens. It was well maintained and had a wide variety of plants, some of which I had not seen before such as the brain cactus. A very enjoyable visit.

This attraction is a gorgeous historical fort and has a beautiful meandering garden, very friendly staff and a garden club with free public lectures. I really enjoyed the lecture and walk around the garden. I will be visiting again and many even joining the Garden Club.

This is a good free attraction in key west. Its neat to walk through the remnants of the old fort and also to see the neat plants/sculptures. If you are sightseeing in key west you for sure should check out the west Martello tower/key west garden club.
