    Walk or Fish

    by grandmaR Written Aug 22, 2014

    We took our kids fishing here when we lived in Key West. It is also a nice place to sit and look at the water and watch the birds.

    Since "our time" in Key West, the AIDs memorial has been added to the White Street Pier area.

    White Street Pier

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This pedestrian pier extends hundreds yards over the Atlantic Ocean. When winds are calm, or out of the north, you can see large schools of fish and numerous feeding shore birds. The end of the pier is a good spot to take kids fishing. Mostley small snappers and grunts, but there have been tarpon, snook and redfish.

    There are nice benches to sit in while looking out to sea...nice at sunset.

    Many homeless people in the area.

    AIDS Memorial

    by Ericasmurf99 Updated Jul 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Names are inscribed on a memorial near the White Street Pier. The memorial is embedded in the sidewalk near the ocean, and made of flat smooth granite. The memorial was dedicated on World AIDS Day in 1997, and funded entirely throug private sources. At the time of dedication, there were 730 names engraved on the memorial. There are spaces for 1,500 names, and each year more are added and dedicated in a ceremony, also on World AIDS Day in December. A group called Friends of the Key West AIDS Memorial takes care of the memorial.
