My husband & I are heading to Key West for our last vacation sans baby. I will be almost 7 months pregnant during our trip so we are looking mainly to relax and enjoy the sun, eat some good food, play in the water a bit (unfortunately no diving/snorkeling this trip) etc., obviously not to drink/party (at least not me!) Friends who go to KW all the time stay at the Pier House and really love it; it looks beautiful and has a small beach so I figured it would be perfect and booked it immediately. Having done some more research, I realize that although the Pier House property itself seems enclosed/quiet (and near great restaurants), that we will maybe not want to be on the busy end on Duval as our home base, especially since a lot of the popular restaurants, esp for breakfast (Blue Heaven, Banana Cafe, Salute etc.) and "larger" beaches are on the other end. Also not sure if we necessarily need to be close to Mallory Sq, touristy stuff, etc. I shouldn't have a problem at that point walking 20-30 min to/from sites but may not be as mobile as I usually am! (Don't mind taking cabs if need be but would rather not have to depend on them for more than dinner). Might SMOTB be a better choice for us for this particular trip? Or will we be fine at Pier House?
Thanks in advance for the advice and for reading this long post!
