Hi tpspuck

You are correct on both counts. Thanks.
I'm heading back down to key west in 10 days. We stay at Blue Water Resort. Of course only if the weather is good.

Hi Palehouse
You are right. My DW has had her breast painted there many times. A fun place and town.

We are KW regulars. Just got married October 30th on the water between Mallory Square and Celebration Island. We chartered the Restless Native and got married as the sun set. We also attended Meeting of the Minds( Jimmy Buffett Convention). We can't wait to take the new Outlaw to the Keys. Another great place for lunch and people watching is Caroline's.

We are key west regulars ourselves. I had a house there for years which I sold a few years ago and have many friends in town.
That's a great way to get married. Congrats. Maybe one day we can meet up there.

We really enjoyed the dueling piano bar.

Another vote for Mallory Square at sunset and Blue Heaven. Watch out for the chickens! Huge "pet" fish at the wharf.

If you are into knives, stop at Sandy's at 704 Duval St. Ask for Stefan.

If you only have one day, study your maps ahead of time, pick your places (Hemingway house, Kermit's key lime pie, Mallory's sunset festival) and rent that scooter so you can hit all of them with no wasted time.

When my son was alive he was stationed in KW. We visited often.

Duval St. is the center, then Whitehead and Front St.
Hog's Breath is a great open bar/restaurant on Front St. and the music volume is not bad.

Most places have the music volume VERY high. You can not talk over it.
There is a open air Frozen Adult Beverage palce that is good. They serve up the frozen drinks at 90 proof.

Stay away from the little Bahama section of town at night.
The PD does not patrol it and only responds with several SD backups.

At one tome it was a very unique place. My last visit was that they were pricing the locals out. One Monroe Co SD I know paroled that area and he had to move because rent was too high. Condos were taking over, the houseboats were mostly gone. Margarettaville is also there and be sure to try the Green Pariot on Whitehead St. it has been there for years and still no A/C.

I agree. All great places. Enjoy your visit. Beware. Once you go, you will be back.

So many places, so little time:
B.O.s Fishwagon on Caroline.
Hogfish Bar & Grill on Stock Island.
Bull and Whistle (under the previously mentioned Garden of Eden)

The Sunset festival at Mallory Square and the Trolly Tour are musts, IMO. Although off the beaten path, the cemetary is a unique experience. Some rather unusual inscribings that are funny.

Southernmost Point is the usual tourist photo spot. Strangest thing about the Southernmost Point is that you can see some land that is further south from it.

I, for one, think if you've only got one day to spend in our Keys then use most of it planning your next visit on where to stay, eat, see, etc. There's a lot worth doing, but most importantly, Key West is a lot like good Bourbon; designed to be sipped, slowly and not rushed. Oh, and don't forget that without taking the standard KW tourist picture at the Southernmost Market, you can't really prove you were there at all which can have it's advantages at times :-)
