EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
With its distinctive architecture, courtyard gardens and hidden pathways Key West's Old Town is a delight to explore on foot. Experience what makes the United States' southernmost city so unique and discover what lies behind the quaint facade. With local experts who lead lectures and field trips, hear tales of ships and shipwrecks, explore the Hemingway home and get a look at Papa’s favorite bar. Consider President Truman’s love affair with Key West at the “Little White House” and share the spirit of the island with artists, divers, gardeners, historians, musicians, oceanographers and other natives.


Highlights

• Meet numerous Key West residents and hear from them about their home, and the cultural scene.
• Visit the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum to examine gold and silver bars and other artifacts retrieved by Mel Fisher and his crew of divers from a sunken 17th-century ship.
• Learn about the a variety of different bird species and exotic flora at the Audubon House and Tropical Gardens.
