You have to take in the lighthouse on Key West. The views are brilliant, you can see forever! On a clear day you can almost see Cuba. Heehee

Its a great lighthouse which offers views of the entire island. The story of the lighthouse keeper is well done. To walk up to the top its only about 80 steps, so its an easy climb.

Nice place/museum, breathtaking view from the top of this lighthouse. Amazing trees around, and lots of information about Key West etc. Kids loved the circle stairways to the top.

This is a nice place to learn about some maritime history of Key West along with the men and WOMEN who staffed the lighthouse

Walking up to the top is interesting and not too difficult. I did enjoy the stories of the lighthouse keepers ... don't miss those I'm the keeper's house. There are a few tragic stories available at audio stops.

Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on. I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.
