The last and only American president to visit Cuba while in office was Calvin
Coolidge, who traveled there in January 1928.
Coolidge traveled to Cuba to address the Sixth Annual International Conference
of American States in Havana. He rode a presidential rail car to Key West, Florida
then boarded the U.S.S. Texas battleship for the overnight trip to Havana, Cuba
100 miles away.
