About Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
Although winter is upon us, the beach fun does not have to end. In Key West, we enjoy some of the warmest water temperatures in the country, all year long. Go for a swim, relax on the beach and have lunch in our picnic area. You can also enjoy a leisurely walk along our trails -you may spot some of our feathered friends who stop by during their winter migration. At the days end, experience a spectacular sunset in this tropical setting.
History buffs can take a step back in time during Civil War Heritage Days in February. Experience the Civil War-era as Fort Zachary Taylor is transformed into an encampment and witness a battle that takes place between land and sea.
If there is a wedding in your future, our beach is a beautiful location to exchange your vows. Be sure to make your plans early for this very popular matrimonial venue!
The beach, the ocean and history await you at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park.
Fort Zachary Taylor is located at the end of Southard Street on Truman Annex in Key West.
