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.
Visiting Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory and Stand-Up Paddleboarding will get you outdoors. The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and Fort Zachary Taylor are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Spend the 17th (Mon) airborne with a parasailing or paragliding tour. There's much more to do: make a trip to Mallory Square, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get engrossed in the history at Truman Little White House, and cruise along The Overseas Highway.
