Located 70 miles off of the coast of Key West, this was a tricky park to get to. The expansive ocean and the grandeur of the old fort was well worth the 2.5 hour ferry ride.
Length of Stay:
- 1 day
- Exploring Fort Jefferson, one of the largest and most strategic forts ever built
- Snorkeling among the coaling piers along the moat wall
- A slight sunburn
- Key lime pie and Cuban coffee
Favorite Random Moment:
- Chatting it up with a maintenance ranger who described, in detail, the staff quarters that are built right into one side of the fort. Can you imagine crawling through an arch in the middle of the night to use your restroom?
