The Conch Train is a beloved Key West staple and one of Florida's most popular attractions. For a great tour of Key West, hop aboard this charming reminder of Henry Flagler’s Overseas Railroad, the engineering miracle that brought rail passengers to Key West via an extension of the Florida East Coast Railway.
Called by some Flagler’s Folley, the Overseas Railroad only operated from 1912 to 1935. But the intrepid little Conch Train has been making its faithful rounds of the city without fail since 1958, and is still running daily for your enjoyment.
Sit back and relax as you take a 75-minute journey through the exciting history of Key West and visit the city’s top modern-day attractions.
Hear stories of the days before European settlement when Native American tribesmen left their enemy’s bones to bleach in the island wilderness known to the first Spanish explorers as Cayo Hueso, or “Bone Cay”.
Cruise the streets and byways of Key West, shaded by lush, tropical foliage and graced by some of America’s most unique and historic architectural treasures. Get close up to the colorful, quirky wonder that defines the unique personality of Key West, America’s Southernmost City.
Climb the 65-foot observation tower at the Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum. Learn about Mel Fisher, the treasure hunter whose lifelong search for sunken Spanish galleons lead to tragedy and finally triumph when he found the 1622 wreck of the Nuestra Señora de Atocha and $450 million worth of Spanish treasure.
Experience the Cayo Hueso y Habana Historeum and revisit the days when Cuban cigar magnates ruled the manufacturing and trading hub of Mallory Square.
Meet the explorers, wreckers, turtle hunters, spongers, smugglers, pirates, and rebels who founded Key West.
