One way to start your vacation would be with the history of Key West, a colorful past that includes plenty of cultural spice and maritime adventure. From pirates and wreckers, to the treasure hunters whose stories are told in the Mel Fisher Museum, the sea has played an important part in the life of Key West. To combat piracy in the Caribbean in the 1800’s, the Navy built the amazing Fort Jefferson, largest brick structure in the U.S., on the fantastic Dry Tortugas islands. More recently, Fort Zachary Taylor defended the southern coastline during the Civil War. Visitors with a taste for the past also love the historic Key West architecture of the Old Town district, and a stop by President Harry Truman’s Winter White House is always a great way to spend an afternoon.
On the other hand, if you are the type that likes a little more action, Airplane Rides or a trip offshore for some Snorkeling would get your vacation started off right. Then, take a fast lap around the island on a Jet Ski Tour to scout locations for your next adventure. Maybe it’s easier to just get it all in at once with a full day of Key West Water Sports. After all this action, it might be best to take it easy and unwind before happy hour with a relaxing kayak paddle through the mangroves on an Eco Tour, or a delightful Glass Bottom Boat cruise.
Well, you’ve had a busy day in Key West, so it is probably best to relax on a nice Sunset Cruise and watch the famous tropical sunset.

But don’t worry – the great thing about Key West is that it is small, so you can easily get around on Scooters or Electric Cars, and you will not be losing a lot of time in traffic or looking for parking.
