Attractions in Key West

Experience a little culture on your gaycation.

Blu Q

Captain Steve and his crew on the Blu Q catamaran offer a variety of clothing-optional snorkeling, kayaking and sunset cruises that bring passengers to coral reefs, sand bars and other areas roughly 10 miles west of Key West. You’re almost guaranteed to see sea turtles, barracuda, sharks and other denizens of the deep.

Key West Cemetery

Where better to discover the history of fascinating Key West than in the final resting place of its many notable figures? Many of the words on the headstones have a kind of macabre sense humour, such as “I told you I was sick” or “Devoted Fan of Julio Iglesias”

Truman Little White House

This historic building has served as the winter White House of President Truman and is now a public, living museum as well as a governmental retreat.

The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum

Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote here for more than ten years. And he had some crazy-footed pussies running around. A must see.

South Beach

Not that South Beach. But it is a warm sandy beach that’s a favorite with locals. The waters shallow, so you don’t even have to pretend to swim.

Smathers Beach

This beach is man-made, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the half mile of beach, bike paths, and a plethora of sports.

Rest Beach

This is a great place to chill out, as the name implies. There’s soft sand and natural vegetation. If you fish, come here to do it off the White Street Pier.

Higg’s Beach

This wide, sandy beach has a long wooden pier. If that’s not suggestive enough for you, they also have a variety of available watersports.

Ghost tours

Take one of the ghost tours and learn about Key West’s haunted past. If you dare.

Gay & Lesbian Trolley Tour

Not the “hey you, hop on” you might be wanting, but it’s fun nonetheless. This tour is a fabulous way to see the sights and meet other gays and lesbians.
