Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery and Tours

Back in 2012 a few industrious and rum loving folks had the wondrous idea to make a new rum and distill it right here in southwest Florida, Cape Coral to be exact.  Utilizing Florida's very own sugar cane crops and other locally sourced ingredients, all of their rum is small batch, handcrafted using an American copper still pot.  Rums are then placed into American Kentucky whiskey barrels and aged anywhere from 3 to 14 years. Wicked Dolphin is the largest craft rum distiller in Florida and perhaps in the United States.

Free Key West Martello Tower & Gardens Tour

The Key West Garden Club is located at the West Martello Tower, a National Historic site.  The site was originally built as a protector to Fort Taylor, also on Key West but was rendered obsolete before it was completed. Plans for the site were originally drawn up in 1836, but construction never actually started until 1863.  Since the site was never actually used as a fort, it was occasionally used for; target practice by the US military, quartering troops, storage and a military radio station.  Over the years the fort had come into severe disrepair and was almost demolished. But, in 1949 the Key West city commissioners stopped the demolition and came to an agreement with Monroe County and the Key West Garden Club to maintain it.  In the mid 1970’s the grounds and fort were declared a National Historic Site and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The photos here and on their website don’t do justice and you truly must see this for yourself.  This is one of the island's last remaining free tourist attractions.
