This cemetery is one of the neatest I've ever been to. Walk through it and read some of the headstones! You won't be disappointed. Some good history here too!

A large cemetery that is well-kept and peaceful. Be ready to spot many iguanas as they are everywhere. Be sure to protect yourself from the sunshine as there is little shade.

We quickly visited the cemetery on our trip in Key West. We did not get out of our car, but saw a lot of iguanas! Pretty interesting!

It's worth spending about an hour walking the grounds and highlights include a section dedicated veterans and those killed on the USS Maine. Many of the graves include unique and interesting sculptures. Check for signs posted on the gates about tour availability.

Most people think there are only three reasons for visiting a cemetery: You are going to a funeral. You are visiting someone who's already there. You are the funeral. However, there are plenty more.

Unusual tour for a cloudy or cool day. Also, a great place to ride your bike (no cars), or a good walk. Be sure to get a map first before going on your walking tour. Check out one grave that says, "I told you I was sick".

Very novel grave sites and an entertaining casual stroll down memory lane. The dedicated military section was emotionally moving.

Great site to visit when in Key West. The cemetery is very historic but the wildlife is a rare treat.
