Key West Holiday Getaway

Over the holidays we planned a last minute trip to No Name Key and Key West  - and it was probably one of our better travel decisions. I was looking through my pictures today and realized I never put these up on LLS. I'm so happy we stayed in Florida and found a way to put our precious vacation days to good use. First stop: The Caribbean Club to sit out on the dock, take in the scenery and enjoy an ice cold beer.

Instead of rushing straight to Key West, we stayed at a family friend's house on No Name Key for two nights. It was so peaceful and a great way to disconnect. We went kayaking, fishing and spent time at the famous No Name Pub. Order the pizza! 

Despite it being "the season," we were able to snag a room for two nights at The Weather Station Inn in Key West. Special thanks to the Innkeepers Association for coming through for us. I would totally recommend this B&B if you want to be close to all the action, yet still feel secluded in a rather romantic setting. We will definitely be back! 

We did Key West right. Walked around Mallory Square to watch the sunset and get a glimpse of the characters and their daredevil acts, bloody's and brunch at Blue Heaven and live music at the Green Parrot, the best dive bar on the key. Let's also not forget fruity drinks poolside at Dante's and a stop by Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden to meet Peaches the parakeet.
