    Amazingly, there are two national parks within easy reach during a visit to the Florida Keys: Everglades National Park and Dry Tortugas National Park. The Dry Tortugas can be accessed via ferry or seaplane from Key West, or by private vessel. The remote offshore preserve lies approximately 70 miles west of Key West in the Gulf of Mexico. The park contains the Civil War-era Fort Jefferson, believed to be the largest masonry structure in the Western Hemisphere.

    An interesting note for collectors: The Garden Key Harbor Light located in Dry Tortugas National Park is to be depicted on a 44-cent first-class postage stamp as part of the U.S. Postal Service's commemorative stamp series.
