World famous Key West is an hour's drive away, On the way you may be able to see the unique and protected Key Deer noted for their small size and abundance on Big Pine Key. While in Key West plan to see the many museums including the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, Key West Shipwreck Museum, Florida Keys Natural History Museum, Turtle Kraal Museum, Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters.

Zachary Taylor Historical State Park, Audubon House and Tropical Garden, Key West Art and Historical Society, Key West Aquarium, Key West Butterfly and Natural Conservatory, Dry Tortugas National Park, Vandenberg Wreck, Key West Wildlife Center and the southernmost point in the United States.
