My husband and I (30/32) will be visiting Key West in mid November to celebrate my (eek!!!!) 30th birthday. We are a fun-loving, diversity-loving, childless couple who are VERY excited about our first trip to KW. I've been reading all of the threads and have a few good ideas about the "can't miss" places, ie.Blue Heaven, the cuban restaurant, Half Shell Raw Bar, Hemingway Houseetc, but I do have a couple of questions.
1) I read that the avg. temp in Nov. is about 80..will the water, etc still be warm enough to snorkle and hang out at the beach? (I know, KW is not know for it's beaches, we're walking into this with our eyes open)
2)We have kind of been thinking about a trip to Dry Tortugas, but wondered if it was worth it? I know it kills an entire day and wondered if those of you out there thought it was a good idea to go.
We will be there for a week..Sat.-Sat. and are flying into Miami, driving down and then flying out of Key West. Just so you all know what we like...we plan to do the "Duval Crawl", so we love to party and have a good time, but we are also content to lie around a pool and read for hours. We do laid back vacations to St. Pete Beach and throw downs to Las Vegas. Thought Key West would be the best of both worlds and then some!
Can't wait to hear your input and suggestions for anything else I might have missed that we "must" see!
