Unusual Things to Do in Key West

Unusual Things to Do in Key West

Key West is known for being the southernmost city in the United States. A long time ago, Key West was the

richest city in the country because of its shipwreck salvage industry. Key West was also an important naval

station. A lot of the country’s finest musicians, writers, politicians and actors were born here – or at least visited

and lived in the small city for some of their lives.

Combined with the warm tropical weather and its proximity to Miami, Key West is very popular tourist

destination. Getting to Key West from Miami is simple – you can book a Miami to Key West shuttle to get you

there and back (that very same day or a few days later).

Unusual Things to Do in Key West

Key West has several top attractions tourists love to visit, like the Key West Lighthouse, the Butterfly

Conservatory, and Mallory Square. But if you don’t want to visit these regular attractions or have visited them

already and are looking for something new to do, here are some unusual things you can do in Key West:

Visit an Evil, Haunted Doll

Did you know that Key West is home to an evil, haunted doll just like the one you say in the movie Annabelle?

Robert the Doll once belonged to a little boy called Gene and was thought to be possessed by an evil spirit who

destroyed furniture and performed other mischievous acts. The doll can now be found at Fort East Martello

museum. Visitors are advised to ask the doll’s permission before taking pictures to avoid being cursed.

Knock Back a Drink with the Dead

Have you ever wanted to have a drink with the dead? Captain Tony’s bar was once a morgue, with gravestones

and even a hanging tree. More than 70 people were hung on that hanging tree in the past – and the hanging 

tree now occupies center stage inside the bar.

Learn How Hemingway Almost got Broke

Hemingway had a lot of trouble with women, history tells us. When he was away from home, his wife had a

swimming pool built which cost $20,000. $20,000 was a huge sum in 1938 and Hemingway, when he learned

what his wife had done was reportedly furious. He threw a penny on the ground and was said to have

exclaimed, “Pauline, you’ve spent all but my last penny, so you might as well have that!” The penny is still

there, embedded in the concrete at the Hemingway Home and Museum. Visitors have a chance to click photos

of the penny and learn more about Hemingway’s romantic troubles.

This is, of course, not all that Key West has to offer. To get the most out of your Key West experience, you

might want to inquire with a local company about Key West tours. You can choose from a wide range of

packages to find one that’s perfect for you. You will get to see Key West’s top attractions and have a great time

with your fellow travelers.
