Where is Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park?
If you’ve had enough of the hustle and bustle of Duval Street and want to spend a leisurely day on the beach during a stay in Key West for several days, you’ll find relaxation and tranquility in Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park with its beautifully situated beach with a Caribbean feel.
The Park is located in the southwest of Key West Island. At the end of Southard Street, through the “gated Community” Truman Annex, past the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center, you finally reach the park entrance. The Park can be easily reached on foot from most Motels.
The White Beach invites you to laze and sunbathe. You will find cooling in the turquoise blue sea. Here is also located in an idyllic beachhouse the “Cayo Hueso Cafe”. In addition to refreshing drinks, there are also tasty snacks from the Cuban cuisine for the Hunger in between.
The State Park also contains the remains of Fort Zachary Tayler, named after him, which was completed in 1866 and used until 1947. Although there is little to see from the Fort, it is worth taking a tour through the old walls.
