Michigan couple looking for a good time in KW

It is our firsdt time to the Keys, we are very excited to feel the heat, and let loose in Key West. We r staying at the Southern Most Hotel, hopefully we made a good choice. Where should we go to get some good ol local fun? Dancing on the tables fun, wife gets alittle crazy sometimes. LOL We cant wait!! We will be there the first week in April.

Sunscreen !!! Don't forget it or you'll regret it.

Go down around Mallory Square about an hour before sunset. Find a bar and watch the sun go down.

Then check out Sloppy Joe's or Hog's Breath Inn to check out the bands. If you like blues and "dive" bars - hit the Green Parrot around 10 PM .

Pace yourself -that tequila sneaks up on you.

In the AM head up to Bahia Honda state park ( Sandspur beach) Mile Marker 37. Stop at Baby's Coffee at MM 15 on the way up.

Been to the Keys a bunch of times - I was there about 3 weeks ago. Never stayed at the Southernmost Hotel - but if the weather's good, as it probably will be, you won't be inside much anyway.

We have all of those on our todo list! Lots to do and so little time. We are staying up near Key Largo for most of the week and only two days and one night in Key West. Chose Angelina Guest house because of price and location - it's only for one night. We will definitley check out Garden of Eden, hogs breath and sloppy joe's. Will also be total tourists and get a cheese burger in paradise and a margarita at Margaritaville. Micplggcc - you've spent some time in VT? - Cool. Happy 6 month anniversary!

Thanks for all the info, we are so excited to finally see the Keys, we have been around the country, and now the Keys.

Say, is $175 / day/ cpl enough for plenty of fun on Key West? As for you Vermont, we know the Green Mountains pretty well, and how bout those Catamounts. We love it there.

Thank you again everyone for all the information.

TravelingAsh,

Even though it's a "totally touristy" thing to do, the cheesburger in paridise at Margaritaville is still the best burger I've ever had. We've been to 5 different margaritavilles and ALWAYS get the burger.

Oh and besides Sloppy's and the other places that were mentioned, don't forget to stop by Irish Kevin's. It's on Duval just down the street from Sloppy's. It's a great time too.

In KW......Go and Do.

Hey Micplggcc - we too are from Michigan (westside) and will also be down there the first week of april. Bring some decent walking shoes as most of the attraction are on the far north end from where you are staying. Never stayed at Sothernmost but heard ok things. Catch the party at Mallory, go to Kelly's for dinner (Kelly Migillis of Top Gun Fame)

Where in Michigan are you from. If we run across you I will make sure to buy you a drink.

PS - if you have the time in your schedule make sure to look into the Dry Tortugas trip.

Cardinal - it is the best burger for sure! We've had it at the Margaritaville in Orlando and Montego Bay! Really looking forward to this margaritaville since it was the original - also one of the BEST Margaritas we've ever had. Definitley planning on a Malorey Square sunset. Guess we're going to have to watch out for all these wild Michigan partiers! We'll keep an eye out for you. Thank you to everyone who has helped us out with advice on what to do. We will only be in Key West for around 24 hours. Will be out partying and "go and do" for about 23 hours of it and sleeping for 1 hour! Thanks!!!

hey everyone, thanks so much for all the info, we are more than just excited for our time in the keys. hey musky, we are east siders, north of Detroit. ggandcc3864@yahoo.com if ya wanna catch up, you too Vermont. We were looking at the Angelina House, ya know we never even thought about Bed and Breakfast places, but have seen that they are or can be more afordable than hotels/motels, we want a place with a nice pool, and to get a breakfast with would be awesome. if no bar at the pool, can ya take your own cooler down poolside, Cheers to all and look forward to seeing everyone. Thanx again for all the Great info.
