Visit the Dry Tortugas National Park One of the best reasons to visit Key West is actually a 70-mile ferry or seaplane ride away (no, not Cuba, but almost). Seven small islands comprise the park, home to the impressive Fort Jefferson, a red brick fortress dating back to the early 1800s. While guided historic tours are available, most visitors prefer to spend their time snorkeling, swimming, or sunning. Rustic camping is permitted on a first-come, first-served basis – it's so worth the trouble!
Less than 2 minutes walk from the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, this historic Key West property features guest rooms with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
