It’s How Many Miles Away?
Normally these distance mile marker posts are reserved for the center of town or at least a high traffic tourist area like Duval Street here in Key West. This is the exception to the rule, in fact, I’ve NEVER seen one of these on a beach before… have you? There are at least two more of these in town, both of which are in the Harbor Walk area of town… unlike this one stuck on a beach.
Let’s see, it shows: Honolulu 4,788 miles, Miami 132 miles, Dry Tortugas 70 miles, London 4,565 miles, Nassau 281 miles, New Orleans 630 miles, San Francisco 2,550 miles… and the list goes on and on as you can see!
This out-of-the-way tourist site can be found inside the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park along its beautiful shore line. A park fee of $4 or $5 per person does apply.Shoestring Weekend
