The Key West Personalized Day Tour
Full Day Tour: ROUND-TRIP TRANSPORTATION
SUMMARY OF DAY TOUR:
Unlike other companies that merely provide you with transportation to and from the island, and forget about you in between, this tour offers you the personalized service and attention to detail that will truly make this an incredible experience.
THE AFRICAN SLAVE MEMORIAL
Learn about and become inspired by the effort to find the unmarked graves of African slaves; and to understand the history of Key West’s role in rescuing them from the extremely harsh treatment of the illegal slave trade in the Caribbean. 9 graves were identified. 294 bodies lie somewhere nearby. It is without a doubt worth the stop for this 30-minute tour. It is the most significant discovery and memorial in all of the Keys!
*Please note that visiting any of these historical sites is optional. It is fine to skip them and simply enjoy your individual time exploring the island.
The beautifully restored Romanesque style building was the first Federal building on Key West (“Key West Travel Guide”). According the the Key West Art & Historical Society, “this four-story architectural marvel was built to keep pace with the increasing population and wealth accumulating from Key West’s lucrative trade routes and maritime industries.” It has featured such exhibits as the provocative Stanley Papio installation art exhibit, the Tennessee Williams art exhibit, and much more.
LIGHTHOUSE AND KEEPER’S QUARTERS:
This museum honors the men and women and families who served the people of Key West during sickness, war and damaging weather events. There are 88 steps. Walk to the top for an incredible view of the town and the ocean. Explore the museum to see how the light keepers and their families lived in the 19th Century and early 20th Century. Admire Key West’s maritime heritage (Key West Art & Historical Society).
FORT EAST MARTELLO:
Built as a fort for the Union Army in the Civil War, it was left abandoned for years. Mostly restored to its mid-19th Century design, the fort possesses interesting relics from the war. It also possesses a creepy vibe, as it is also home to numerous provocative exhibits from Key West’s most eclectic and bizarre history; including that of Robert the Doll. If you visit, you are implored to be nice to Robert, or else!
