Full description

Find out why Key West attracted so many cultural legends on a self-guided walking tour of the quirky old town. Starting from Mallory Square, follow the precise directions of your audio guide mobile app to learn the fascinating history behind the people and places that make the island so special.

Starting from the Memorial Sculpture Garden in Mallory Square, you’ll discover the stories behind Key West’s most famous sights, including the residence of former President Harry Truman, Florida’s oldest bar, the hotel where Tennessee Williams stayed for ten years and the so-called longest street in the world.
