Local Attractions
There are many great things to do in Key West that are located near Karibu Key West.  Since the island is less that 7.5 square miles in size, everything is close!

Here are a few things that we can recommend... we also include a great welcome binder at the home that includes additional information for Key West, the other Keys, and Southern Florida.

Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
This State Park is a short walk from Karibu Key West, and offers the newest and cleanest public beach in Key West (keep in mind Key West beaches are a little rockier than those in the Caribbean, so shoes are helpful).  We offer our guests a pass for beach access, so you can go as often as you want during your stay. You can also visit this historic fort and learn about it's role in Florida's history during the Civil War and Spanish American War.

Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center
This newer center is walking distance from Karibu Key West, and if features great dynamic experiences that explain the ecosystem of the Keys. Admission is free, and it is appropriate for all ages.

Ernest Hemingway House
This well-known author loved Key West, and lived in this home for ten years.  He wrote some of his well known books from this location. If you do not like cats, this is not the place for you, because cats freely roam everywhere like they did when Hemingway lived there.

Southern Most Point
Visit the southern most point in the continental United States.  It is a great spot to take pictures from this landmark, located on the corners of Whitehead Street and South Street. From this point, you are only 90 miles from Cuba.

Sunsets at Mallory Square
While Mallory Square offers many other forms of food and entertainment that you can enjoy, one thing that should not be missed is the great sunsets that can be witnessed from this area. 

Duval Street
Likely the most famous street in Key West.  If you want to be in the middle of everything, this is the place to go.  Find food, drinks, and fun almost anywhere you go, day or night.

Key West Aquarium
While it is likely not the largest aquarium that you will visit, it probably offers the most up-close aquatic experience that you can have. This is a great treasure of Key West for young and old.

Harry S. Truman's Little White House
President Truman spent many days at this home during his Presidency.  It is now the only presidential museum in the state of Florida.

Higgs Beach
A historic beach where a memorial stands to remember the enslaved Africans who died in Key West after being intercepted on boats headed to Cuba in1860. This beach is also a great place for snorkeling, and there is a dog park near for those who bring their four legged family members.

Mel Fisher Maritime Museum
Explore great finds from the sea as sunken treasure ships and their bounty are featured. This museum is updated regularly as new finds are added to their galleries.

Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory
For those who love nature, beyond the water, you can enjoy over 60 species of butterflies and over 3,000 plants.
