A Key West Tour that will Leave You Impressed

Curiosity, weirdness, history, and attractions are some of the reasons that will make you fall in love with Key

West. Most would agree: the complete island, in one way or the other is enthralling. If you are all set for a Key

West tour, then some of the famous choices include:

Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden

Only a few miles from Old Town, you’ll spot a natural wonder famous as the Key West Tropical Forest &

Botanical Garden. Inaugurated in the 1930s (when the Great Depression was made worse when the New Deal

went into effect and in the decade WWII started), this 8.5 acre lush green forest and botanical garden serves as

an interpretive and educational hub for wildlife and plants of the Caribbean as well as the Florida Keys. A self-

guided tour is the best to explore the varied natural Florida Keys.

You can see orchids, palms or other flowering plants on this tour. The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical

Garden is also home to a fresh water lake, where you can find both migratory and local birds. Often egrets,

herons, as well as other water birds are also seen in this lake. The garden is also home to bright butterflies.

Southernmost Point

Photographers are sure to have a good time here. It is one of the most amazing places where you can take

pictures and spend some wonderful moments with your family. The destination sees thousands of vacationers

every year, chiefly because of its huge painted cement buoy that rests on the corner of South Street and

Whitehead Street.

It is believed that years ago, Albert Kee; a resident of the island sold seashells by the marker and there are plans

to erect a statute in his respect as well. On your visit, you’ll find several vacationers cued up for their turn to

take a snap.

Mallory Square

There are only a handful of places in the world that offer the sheer vibrancy, the magnificence, and the

tranquility of the Keys. For an added charm, make sure to witness the amiable sunset in Mallory Square. The

joys of watching sunset in Old Town are simply great. It is the time when you’ll find thousands of people

gathered on the docks of historic Mallory Square. Here, you can also see flame tossing jugglers, tightrope

walkers, well trained birds and loads more.

Walk a fit farther, over a tiny footbridge, and you can see acts such as Dominique and His Flying House Cats,

Speed Bump the Pig and Bounce and OOOLaLa. And after a tiring day out, if you are hungry, walk up to the

food vendors and taste the scrumptious conch fritters, key limeade as well as other home-made goodies.

Key West Aquarium

You can also stop by the significant Key West Aquarium and take a guided aquarium tour from there. The touch

tank of the aquarium is home to various marine creatures such as, conchs, crabs, sea urchins, and more. And

then, there is nothing like getting up-close and personal with a nurse shark and try feeding it as well.

Custom House

A short walk from Mallory Square, you’ll find the Custom House. This award-winning museum tells you about

the rich nautical and trade history of Key West. You’ll also get the chance to see the famous shipwreck and

interactive maritime exhibits.
