Feeling adventurous? Head out to sea for fishing, snorkeling, diving, parasailing, and glass bottom boat tours on the reef. The living coral reef is one of our most exciting treasures here in Key West. It’s the only one in North America, and it runs parallel to the the Florida Keys, right on down to the Dry Tortugas. From scuba trips to snorkeling excursions, many of Key West’s activities focus on the wonderful marine world of the living coral reef.
For days when you’re not planning to go for watersports, make your way to Old Town. Simply walking the shady tree-lined streets and taking in the quaint conch house architecture one of the top Key West activities. Old Town is really that picturesque. Key West conch houses are featured in design magazines all the time. Just take a stroll and find out for yourself!
If you want more structure to your day, try a trolley tour or a conch train tour. There are also ghost tours, walking tours, bicycle tours and bar crawl tours. We call that latter tour the “Duval Crawl”. Duval Street is lined with bar after bar so bar hopping is very easy and fun.
There are museums for any taste, too. Pirates, shipwrecks, history, literature, all of these can be explored in the local museums of Key West. Try Hemingway House, one of the favorite Key West activities on land. Try the Aquarium for a look at the marine world. All these Key West activities are located in Old Town, easy to walk to for just about anyone.
