If you think you have come to the end of the southernmost tip of the United States once you have reached Key West, think again. Seventy miles west out over the emerald waters of The Gulf of Mexico you will find The Dry Tortugas National Park. Fort Jefferson is the largest 19th Century coastal fort and is its central feature. Take a two hour plus boat ride from Key West or consider a sea plane. This is a unique adventure not to be easily forgotten.
