Visiting Key West - Tips

A quick memory list of things to go and see and do in Key West, Florida. Surely one of my favorite vacation spots !

Take a Sunset Cruise...

Plenty of choice of charters when you walk around in the harbor (off Schooner Warf, walking distance from Duval Street) - avoid booking when strolling Duval Street or Mallory Square.

Watch the cat show at sunset at Mallory Square...

One of those strange traditions. But worth the $2 tip.

Consider staying at one of the many local Bed & Breakfasts on the island - or get a Timeshare rental (many companies, including several Hyatt properties)

Visit and sail with the restored 1925 Hindu Sail Boat

Visit Sail Shooner Hindu and find it at 202 William Street.

Free Boat Ride...

Take a quick trip to Sunset Key - a private resort island (Starwood, Westin). And have breakfast on the beach at Latitudes. Boat departs from 245 Front Street. Read more at Westin Sunset Key Cottages.
