Another Tuesday is here and the week is in full swing. You may as well make the most of it with a couple of great things to do for $10 or less. In today's installment of Dollars & Sense we are focusing on things that you can do in Key West, Florida. Check it all out below!
Visit The West Martello Tower & Botanical Garden:
The West Martello Tower - This National Historic Site and former Civil War fort houses a delightfully tranquil outdoor botanical garden with many species of native and exotic plants, trees, and flowers including orchids and Brummel's. The cool thick walls of the fort provide a welcome respite from the hot sun and you can stroll through the brick paths, archways,and courtyards. I like to make an iced lemonade and bring it with me to sip under the gazebo which faces out over the ocean. It is a relaxing place to meditate, feel the ocean breeze and enjoy the tropical foliage. There is an East & West Martello Tower. This is the West Martello branch and it's free though donations to the Key West Garden Club are welcomed. The West Martello Tower & Garden is open year round Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m to 3:15 p.m. It is located at the end of While Street where it meets the Atlantic Ocean.
