We drove down to Key West again today, about 60 miles, and this time we let the boys come. Dan had spent 2 weeks here years ago and said he really didn’t need to see it again, but he came anyway. Nate didn’t care either way, so we made him come. This cruise ship was docked on the west side and we couldn’t believe how big it was.
We walked all over and Eliza and I noticed how many more people were here than our previous visit. It’s getting closer to the holidays, which is the busiest time of the year down here. And we thought we were the only ones who would be in the Keys for the winter, haha.
There are 3 main things to do in Key West – Bar hopping, fine dining and water recreation. I’d add a 4th – shells on your truck. We’ve seen them attached to cars everywhere we’ve been, but this was the best one.
We went to Mallory Square with about 2,000 other tourists to watch the sun set. The couple next to us had just gotten married that day, and the family to our right were arguing about where to go on Duvall street that night. There were booths selling food and tourist trinket junk, and entertainers with pets, fire and knives. It was the party atmosphere we expected, and we weren’t disappointed. Another perfect day on the road.
