Key West Lighthouse and Keeper's Quarters Museum


There are only 14 lighthouses in America older than this one, which was activated in 1848, and, uniquely, with a woman as keeper. Climb the 88 steps to the top, where you can take in a wonderful view of the island; it’s a perfect vantage point for photographs. Afterward, tour the Keepers’ Quarters filled with historic instruments, maps, and photos that depict a rich maritime history.
