In Key Largo stop at the Key Lime Shoppe for a slice of pie. I found it better than in KW. In Islamorada stop at Island Grille or Lazy Days for lunch or just a beverage. Stop at Robbies to feed the tarpon, also in Islamorada .In No Name Key, try to find the No Name Pub without GPS. It's a challenge. Drive slowly because deer may cross right in front of you .Check out Hogfish Bar & Grille on Stock Island before or after KW where there are dozens of places to have good chow. Have fun. Check out Blue Heaven in KW, you 'll be staying about one block away.

For Key West, hit one or more of the happy hours at the Key West Bight. They are generally from 4:30 - 6:30 and include things like 1/2 priced drinks and apps (Alonzo's and the Boathouse) and .50 oysters on the half shell (Turtle Kraasl and the Half Shell Raw Bar) or 2-4-1 drinks (The Conch Republic Seafood Co.)

Try to get out onto the water once. It may be too chilly for you to snorkel, but there are day and sunset sails, and even a full moon sail. And you could try kayaking.
