Blogging A to Z — Key West

KAnother day in the Blogging A to Z Challenge, another day I’m behind! Ahhh, I’ll get caught up this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Letter K brings me to one of my favorite places to visit — Key West. My first trip there was filled with all the typical tourist events, including the southermost point, the butterfly conservatory, Hemingway’s House, the lighthouse, Margaritaville, Sloppy Joe’s, sunset festival, a ride on the conch train, and key lime pie on a stick. And if you’ve never been to Key West, you should probably hit up every one of those places and do every one of those things. They’re fun!

But I’ve been there enough now that I’m starting to learn about some of the less tourist-y places. Still popular and attractive to tourists, but not necessarily on the tourist-y map. Things like grabbing a mojito at the Rum Bar at Speakeasy Inn on Duval; breakfast at my very favorite restaurant in the whole world, Blue Heaven (get the cheese omelette with Key West pink shrimp and lime hollandaise sauce and a slice of homemade banana bread — screw the calories, fat, and cholesterol, trust me); a dozen oysters to slurp at Half Shell Raw Bar; drinks with a view that is second to none at Waterfront Brewery; and the only peel and eat shrimp I’ll eat accompanied by a frozen rum runner and some terrific music at Schooner Wharf. And for a little adult raucousness, maybe an uproarious and entertaining evening at Aqua ๐Ÿ™‚ Top it off with a nightcap and some bathroom graffiti at Captain Tony’s (#ManUpLarry).

There is something for everyone in Key West. Do you want to relax poolside or on the beach? Or do you want to be active — biking, kayaking, diving? Or do you want to eat healthy — fresh seafood and tropical fruit? Or do you want to indulge in frozen drinks and friend conch fritters? How about some great people watching? You can have all of this in Key West.

My very favorite restaurant in the whole entire world! It’s like someone just decided to open a restaurant on their backyard!

Just don’t forget the 2 A.M. fried chicken run at Dion’s!

One of my other favorite things to see in Key West — there are kitty cats everywhere!

    I have never been to Key West, but I do love the east coast of Florida. Florida really is a wonderful sunshine state.
