Key West's City Cemetery is rich in history. From the honor of the U.S. Navy Plot, dedicated on December 11, 1898, to the humor of its most famous epitaph, 'I told you I was sick', this cemetery embodies the true spirit of Key West and its residents.  Moved to higher ground after the 1847 hurricane disinterred bodies from the first burial ground near the Southernmost Point, the whitewashed above-ground tombs and statues are fascinating.  The cemetery is located in Old Town with the entrance at Margaret and Angela Streets. Open daily from dawn to dusk, admission is free.
