Dry Tortugas National Park


The park is a cluster of seven small keys, with less than 40 acres of dry land. Fort Jefferson is the largest all-masonry fortification in the Western world, built in 1846-1866 to help control the Florida Straits. It served as a federal military prison during and after the Civil War. The bird refuge and marine life here are also special features. The park is only accessible by plane or boat.
