Key West Cemetery

Perfect for a leisurely self-directed tour by bike or foot, the Key West Cemetery is certainly more enjoyable than its name would suggest.  Located right in the heart of Key West (at the foot of Solares Hill) the grounds are astoundingly picturesque and natural; filled with palm trees, island flowers, and the occasional visitor from the animal kingdom (mostly iguanas and chickens.)  Even a few of the tombstones contain some of the island’s signature charm.  One reads: “I told you I was sick.”  It’s a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street.
