What is there to do?

Ready to explore some history in the Florida Keys? What if we told you that you could visit the winter "White House" of then President Truman?

Well you can, because the Harry S Truman Little White House is a unique historical site that offers tours to take you around the property, exploring this rich history.

Not only did President Truman use this as a place to relax and restore his mind between 1946 and 1952 (at the time he was dealing with the threats of the Cold War!), but later Presidents also used the house too.

You can tour the house with knowledgable tour guides, to give you a glimpse into this "second" life the Presidents had whilst in office, but you also get to learn some of the politics of the cold car, as well as the Naval History of Key West!

Today, the Harry S Truman Little White House is still a living museum, and is actually used for government functions - it wasn't just a one off piece of American history, so just imagine the decisions that have been made in these walls!

Why travel to DC when you can visit another "white house" in the Florida Keys - the sun is certainly sunnier on this house!

A fascinating day out exploring an iconic part of US history.
