Key West Wildlife Center… An Unexpected Pleasure

6748753659_38f9d6ecd6_bWant a really neat FREE place to visit while in Key West? Well then, I’ve got a great get away from the crowds on Duval Street by simply heading towards Higgs Beach.

The Key West Wildlife Center is one of those hidden places that if not for the sign you’d miss it for sure. The entrance pictured below sits off the main road barely visible as you drive by. It is 100% FREE to enter even though they do have two photo-op pelicans that double as donation stations ready to take your money. The exhibits include caged and wild roaming animals, Key West chickens, walking paths, a massive Staghorn Fern & the fantastic Audubon pond. The pond is for sure one of the highlights where we stood for 30 minutes watching the many different wildlife animals frolic in the water and its surrounding trees.

You and your family can find this awesome FREE getaway at 1801 White Street beside Key West’s largest bocce ball courts across from Higgs Beach. Be looking for future blogs on several of the listed attractions.
