Instagrammable ​​Audubon House Experience

You can find another Instagrammable photo opportunity In Key West at the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens as they recently unveiled an interactive, educational, and “Instagrammable” Audubon Experience.  Visitors enter a room of brightly colored artwork stretching from floor to ceiling as they pay homage to artist John James Audubon, who visited Key West in 1832. The decor is bright and delightful, as the walls are covered in hand-painted wallpaper displaying colorful flowers and tropical birds. The newly designed room was created to encourage a young generation of visitors to explore and learn about Key West’s vibrant history.

Key West Lighthouse Sunset Experience

There’s a new place to watch the sunset, and it’s at one of our most beloved attractions and landmarks on the island! If you haven’t heard about it yet, allow us to introduce you to the Key West Lighthouse Sunset Experience.  It’s the perfect place to view our beautiful island and experience sunset with a small group of 8 or less. We think it’s also a prime location to pop the question!  Not only do you get the property all to yourself, you receive an artisan platter from Uva Key West along with a bottle of bubbly!

The Sunset Experience is weather permitting and allows for 90-minute (45 minutes before and after sunset) access to the property, museum, and tower during sunset.  Prices range from $300 to $350, based on the number in your party.

There really is no better place to watch our spectacular sunsets than our own Key West Lighthouse.

A VIP Experience. Highly Recommended ~ Suzanne, TripAdvisor
