Some of the cruises from Galveston stop at Key West, the southernmost point in the Continental US. This popular port of call combines Caribbean charm and laid back island living along with deep rooted history and plenty of arts and culture. Key West offers plenty to see and do whether you want to venture out on the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico or take in some of the many historic sites within a short walk of where you your cruise ship will dock.
Walking is the preferred means of transport in Old Town Key West but you should consider taking advantage of some of the available shore excursions to really maximize on your Key West experience. Popular tours and sites are the Conch Tour Train, Mel Fisher Museum, Key West Lighthouse, Butterfly Museum and the Hemmingway House but there are many, many more available for you to enjoy.
Some people simply like to soak up some of the Key West atmosphere and mix with the locals while taking in some live music at one of the many Key West bars such as Sloppy Joes, Captain Tony’s or the Hog’s Breath, where Kenny Chesney recently performed a free, impromptu concert with local musicians.
Everyone should visit Key West at least once in their lifetime and there is no better way to check out the magic of the infamous Duval Street and Old Town area than during your cruise from Galveston.
