We didn't exactly stay overnight at Dry Tortugas National Park, but we did spend the day here. I just had to put this place on our trip journal because it was so cool, and it's the furthest place from Alaska that we've traveled.

We had a great time here, the boat ride was wonderful (its 70 miles from Key West!) and the Fort itself was very interesting. There's also some really nice snorkeling here that we did take advantage of.

Overall, we had a great time here and are really glad we were able to visit here.
