Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.
You've added St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Capt. Tony's Saloon, Fort Zachary Taylor, and other attractions to your itinerary. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Truman Little White House, examine the collection at The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, then kick back and relax at Fort Zachary Taylor, then take in the waterfront at Key West Historic Seaport, and finally join in the after-dark buzz at Capt. Tony's Saloon.
