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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Dolphin Research Center and U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Ingham Maritime Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Key West side-trips: Bahia Honda State Park (in Big Pine Key) and Marathon (The Turtle Hospital, Crane Point Museum & Nature Center, &more). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Mary Star of the Sea, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take in the pleasant sights at Key West Garden Club, and identify plant and animal life at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory.
