Key West Trip Report from a first timer

This forum was invaluable to me in planning a recent first-time trip to Key West. Thanks to you all, we had a great time and definitely plan to head back when our schedules allow (and it's not so darn hot!!!!).

Thanks for all the advice, tips, and insider information you provide every day!

If anyone would like to read about our experience, you can find it here:

Enjoyed reading your TR and love the pictures. I wish you had taken a picture of the dog collecting tips, it's a great idea and I wouldn't be able to pass in my. I have a question, if one is not into drinking would you feel out of place in KW. My husband and I are not much for drinking but we love so much of what KW has to offer. I also feel that enjoying the different bars is great fun...some advice please. I loved the cottage you stayed at and where did you find it?

Awesome trip report and beautiful photographs. I agree, you should write for a travel magazine. Oh, and where can I buy your metabolism? ;o)

Great blog post!! We're heading to KW for our first time next weekend, and if I wasn't pregnant right now I'm guessing we'd have a very similar itinerary to yours! I'm hoping I'll still have loads of fun minus the glorious vacay booze buzz!

daisey10, You will not feel out of place at all not drinking in Key West. In spite of the reputation, many people here are not big drinkers and we get many families visiting as well. I would avoid Lower Duval at night since it does get taken over with a drinking atmosphere (Lower Duval is the end closer to Mallory Square).

I have had visitors that do not drink and still loved the atmosphere, watersports, museums, great restaurants and architecture. Key West welcomes everyone. Drinkers and non drinkers alike!
