A special part of our nation’s history and the history of Key West, the Harry S. Truman Little White House is where our Thirty-Third President came for a little rest and relaxation and ended up falling in love with the island. As a result, several important political meetings and events took place in the house.

circle 5  

Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum
Visit an era when courageous men dove down deep into the treacherous Key West waters to salvage the valuables onboard sunken ships. At the Shipwreck Treasure Museum you’ll learn all about the years of the wreckers and see artifacts from real shipwrecks. Climb the 65-foot observation tower, watch live re-enactments, view historic films and discover why Key West was considered to be the richest city in America during this era.

Key West Aquarium
See the wild species that live underneath the gorgeous Key West waters. At the Key West Aquarium, you’re likely to get up close and personal with a shark, a sea turtle or perhaps a friendly barracuda. The Aquarium has something to spark the interest of every age - and knowledgeable guides who’ll enlighten you on the many wonders of the marine world.

     
circle 7   Audubon House
See the Geiger tree that appears in John James Audubon’s painting of the white-crowned pigeon—it still stands in the front yard of the Audubon house. Audubon visited the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas in 1832. While he was there, he drew 18 new birds for his "Birds of America" folio. Many of those drawings are believed to have been conceived in the Audubon House garden. Take a tour of the house; enjoy a leisurely stroll through the flourishing garden. It’s a relaxing, educational experience for people of every age.
     
circle 8   Captain Tony’s
Deemed Hemingway’s Sloppy Joe's, Captain Tony’s is an old town saloon located next to Mallory Square. The bar was owned by Joe Russell and is located at 428 Greene Street which was the first location of Sloppy Joe’s. It was here Ernest Hemingway spent many afternoons with his circle of friends during his life in Key West. In fact, visitors to Captain Tony’s can see his original barstool. Stop by for a cool drink and nostalgia of the Hemingway years.
     
circle 9   Sloppy Joe’s
If you’re visiting Key West you can’t go home until you stop in at Sloppy Joe’s. Opened in 1933, the bar changed names and moved around the corner—but the laid back, love of life attitude has always been the same. This was the place where Hemingway and the Joe of Sloppy Joe’s, Joe Russell, shared many a scotch and stories about their fishing excursions. Today, great bar food, strong drinks and live entertainment day and night draw in crowds of people from all-over. No matter when you go, you’ll enjoy the atmosphere, the people, and even get a peak at some of Hemingway’s personal items that were donated by his late wife.
     
10   Mel Fisher Maritime Museum
Lift a bar of real gold and learn about Spanish galleons. Mel Fisher's Maritime Museum displays millions of recovered Spanish treasures including gold and silver coins, navigational instruments and artifacts from the sunken Nuestra Señora de Atocha, a Spanish galleon sunk in the fifteenth century.
     
circle 11   Turtle Kraals
Fresh open-air ambiance, generous cocktails and delicious island fare make Turtle Kraals a favorite among visitors and locals alike. In 1849, this was the site for the first Key West Cannery. When the Endangered Species Act was passed in the 1970’s, the corrals that once held sea turtles became aquariums, home to beautiful marine species and part of the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant. Stop by to place a wager on the turtle races, sample the Caribbean and Cuban cuisine and get to know some of the locals.
     
12   Oldest House/Wrecker’s Museum
Built in 1829, the Oldest House in South Florida was once home to one of the island’s most well-known wreckers, Capt. Francis Watlington. Watlington lived in the house for many years with his wife and nine daughters. Today, visitors can tour the home and the Wrecker’s Museum, a wonderful collection of ship models, maritime artifacts and documents that were so much a part of the wrecker’s era. The classical colonial architecture, original furnishings and items that were recovered from Key West shipwrecks trace the history of the wreckers and demonstrate their influence on the island’s affluence at the time.
     
13   Flagler Station Overseas Railroad Museum
Walk through an actual railroad car; see memorabilia, photographs, artifacts and the film that showcases the arrival of the first train to the island. The Flagler 130-mile railway extension was the result of Flagler’s determination to connect Key West with the rest of the U.S. by train. Learn about the events that led up to the historic first train route to the island in 1912. Be a part of the history and excitement!
     
14   Bahama Village
Take a stroll through Key West’s Bahama Village to experience the culture and history of the original Bahamian settlers to the island. After arriving in the 19th century, the new residents opened shops, bars and restaurants which were frequented by many locals, Ernest Hemingway, included. History has it that the Nobel Prize-winning author enjoyed witnessing boxing and arm-wrestling matches in some of the pubs. Today the charming 12-block area boasts new stores and a variety of eating establishments that offer visitors a journey to that era and a taste of true Bahamian flavor.
     
15   St. Paul’s Church
Stunning stained glass windows adorn the back of South Florida's oldest parish, dating from 1832. Take a seat in a pew and gaze at the beautiful altar and all that surrounds it. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Duval Street offers a spiritual experience to anyone of any faith - for its beauty, rich history and magnificent architecture.
