I talked my friends into a walk and ended it at the cemetary. It was hot so the Iguanas were sunning. There's no public restroom so stop for a cold one and use the facilities. Interesting history and sections within.

Drove through on an electric cart with a map provided by the cemetery. Historic notes of interest are noted on the map.

Good way to learn history and spend a little time off the beaten path of the normal tourist traps.

Lots of history here.This historic site was very peaceful.The only cemetery I've ever found to be peaceful, beautiful and gave me fits of laughter ... due to some of the funny notations on the head stones. A self guided tour is fun. Another must do activity when you go to Key West. And it's free.

It seems a little morbid to say but it really was a fun and fascinating visit. Reading the headstones is entertaining. It's so different from what I'm used to seeing in a cemetery. It's an interesting look at life and death in a completely different part of the country. Go visit! And they have maps at the little caretaker building so you can find some of the sillier headstones as well as the different ones and some of the more famous locals.
