Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
Completed in 1866, this historic fortress oversaw protection of the Island throughout four wars before being designated a historic landmark and repurposed as Florida’s Southernmost state park in 1973. Since then, it’s been a popular destination for recreation and visitors interested in U.S. Military history. Take a guided tour to learn more about the fort’s strategic significance or simply soak up the sun at one of Key West’s favorite beaches. Situated where the Atlantic meets the Gulf of Mexico, it’s the perfect place to snorkel in warm waters and catch a famous Key West sunset.
