Located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba, Key West is an island only about 6.4 km (4 mi) long and 1.6 km (1 mi) wide.

There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, see the interesting displays at Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Museum, steep yourself in history at Curry Mansion, and view the masterpieces at Alan S. Maltz Gallery.
