My favorites from Key West in no particular order including dining, nightlife, and day activities.

  • 1. Blue Heaven
    Blue Heaven, Key West, Florida Keys

    Had the clams appetizer, pork with mango chutney for entree, and caramel apple crisp for dessert. It was all amazing!

  • 2. Gulfstream III

    Night fishing on the Gulfstream. Probably the funnest thing I did while in Key West and I had never fished. I caught 6 fish the first time and 26 the second, mostly snappers. Had a blast! They'll fillet your fish and you can take it to a restaurant to be prepared or do it yourself.

  • 3. Jet skiing

    Rent a jet ski and do doubles so you can throw each other off.

  • 4. Margaritaville Cafe
    Margaritaville Key West, Key West, Florida Keys

    Have a margarita and watch live music. I'd usually get a blackened hot dog while I was there too. The creperie next door is amazing also but I don't remember the name of it.

  • 5. Banana Cafe
    Banana Cafe, Key West, Florida Keys

    Sit on the patio and have crepes or omelets for breakfast.

  • 6. Capt. Tony's Saloon
    Capt. Tony's Saloon, Key West, Florida Keys

    The story is it was built over a cemetary so walk around and look for the headstones. If you're lucky you may even see the Captain himself there.

  • 7. Turtle Kraals Restaurant and Bar
    Turtle Kraals, Key West, Florida Keys

    Go on a Monday or Friday before six and you can bet on a turtle race. Also check out the museum next door.

  • 8. Square Grouper
    Square Grouper, Cudjoe Key, Florida Keys

    The fondue was awesome as well as the catch of the day.

  • 9. Wild Dolphin Adventures
    Wild Dolphin Adventures, Key West, Florida Keys

    I went on some of the bigger catamaran snorkeling trips and this one was much better by far. Its just a local with his small boat but we got a more personal experience. He tooks us to dolphin watching first, then snorkeling we saw tons of fish, sting rays, and nurse sharks. Loved it!

  • 10. Bahia Honda State Park and Beach
    Bahia Honda State Park and Beach, Big Pine Key, Florida Keys

    The nicest beach in the area. Take some food and have a bbq on the beach. Wish I had a chance to camp and snorkel in Looe Key but didn't get around to it.

  • 11. Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory
    Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, Key West, Florida Keys

    Walk through the garden and if you sit still for awhile the butterflies will land on you. Thousands of colorful butterflies.

  • 12. Duval Crawl

    Stroll up and down Duval street for shopping and bar hopping at night, they stay open until about 4 am and later if you know where to go. Around the 800 block you can catch a drag show, they start at 9 pm and the drag queens are out on the street beforehand.

  • 13. Mallory Square
    Mallory Square, Key West, Florida Keys

    Sunset at Mallory Square is full of street performers.

  • 14. Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
    Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, Key West, Florida Keys

    Kind of a rocky beach out but great for snorkeling and bbq and sunsets.

  • 15. Smathers Beach
    Smathers Beach, Key West, Florida Keys

    Play volleyball, rent a kayak, go parasailing, or just lay out and enjoy the sun. If its in season you can even get a kiteboarding lesson with Kitehouse here but you have to set it up in advance.

  • 16. Rent a scooter or electric car and see the island!

  • 17. Sloppy Joe's
    Sloppy Joe's, Key West, Florida Keys

    Usually live bands and a good crowd.

  • 18. Island Dogs

    Local hang out where the food is good, staff is friendly, and Fuel TV is almost always on!

  • 19. Ghost Tours of Key West
    The Original Ghost Tour, Key West, Florida Keys

  • 20. Southernmost Scavenger Hunt

  • 21. Rent Kayaks and tour the island.

  • 22. Scuba or Snuba

    If you're certified or want to get certified this is a good place to do it. If not try snuba!
