Owner description: A very unusual cemetery - several graves have humorous epitaphs (e.g., "I told you I was sick").
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We rented bikes and road through the cemetery. It was an interesting place to explore. Beware, there will be large iguanas sunbathing on the headstones!

Interesting place to stroll around and get a feel of the residents of an area. We were told to come here and see the iguanas sunning themselves on the stones. We did come accross many but they were very timid.

Very reminiscent of New Orleans Cemetery. Could be a good place to get away from the shops and just peruse a bit of history in the granite stones.

I know it might creep some people out but the history of a cemetery intrigues us. Its very well maintained and accessible and an easy walk from Duval.

The Key West Cemetery has beautiful tombstones, and very special groupings (victims of the wreck of the Maine, the Jewish section, Curry family, etc). It also reflects the eclectic citizens "I told you I was sick" and "I'm just resting my eyes" on graves. Make sure to download and print the walking tour map, without it, it's too hard to identify what you're seeing and to really take it in.
