Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kayaking & Canoeing and Vandenberg Wreck. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, learn about all things military at U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ingham Maritime Museum, pause for some photo ops at Florida Keys Historical Military Memorial, and pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Mary Star of the Sea.

For reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Key West tour planning site .

Orlando to Key West is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Orlando in December since evenings lows in Key West dip to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to take a bus to Marathon.
