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.
We've included these beaches for you: Fort Zachary Taylor and Smathers Beach. Visiting Parasailing & Paragliding and Dolphin & Whale Watching will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from Key West to Big Pine Key to see National Key Deer Refuge about 50 minutes away. Spend the 4th (Tue) exploring nature at Dry Tortugas National Park. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, take a leisurely stroll along Mallory Square, get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
