A very unusual cemetery - several graves have humorous epitaphs (e.g., "I told you I was sick").

Another of those classic Key West stops, and worth it. Quirky and interesting. Pick up a map and walk around. Take lots of pictures of interesting headstones, lizards and chickens!

This cemetery is a must see for people who love exploring cemeteries. Be sure, though, to print down the information guide off the web or get a copy from your hotel/B&B.

This cemetery has quite the history. Graves from the 1800s to 2017. There is also an area for veterans dating back to the USS Maine in 1898. Whole families and famous people with very interesting remarks on the headstones.

Free to look. Parking is very limited in this area. Had to park a couple blocks away
