A Day in Key West, Florida

Key West is one of those cities many put on their Bucket List. It is a place to go for relaxing on the beaches, enjoying a great meal, and partaking in a refreshing drink. I did just that but enjoy the waters at the beach. This trip was more about Duval Street’s activities.

Duval Street is full of life. There are restaurants, bar, boutiques, and all things in-between. As an added bonus to history buffs, there are registered historic sites, bed and breakfasts, and museums near by. If you do not have any plans, no worries. Embrace the local culture and adventure will come to you.

Can’t come to Key West without trying Key Lime Pie. My spot of choice was the Key West Key Lime Pie Company. I can’t complain about a food establishment that uses natural ingredients and made fresh on a daily basis. LOVE IT!!

Back to Duval Street, I had to stop at the Smallest Bar in Key West. Its only 72 square feet but have the essentials of a large bar. Funny bartenders…welcoming owner…variety of alcohol… many laughters. All recommended drinks were delicious. No flavored syrups necessary in drinks.

Walking to the west end of Duval Street, I had to stop at Mallory Square. Enjoy the picture prefect ocean views. It’s the ultimate spot to watch the sunset. There are shopping options and the street entertainment made it worth the stop.

There were random sightings and signs that made me laugh. This sign made me think of My Cousin Vinny movie.

At the east end of Duval Street, I enjoyed watching the ocean with sand between my toes. Reflection and mediation on life’s blessing happens automatically. I had to visit the infamous Southernmost Point mark. It made me more excited about my trip to Cuba.

Ending on a good note, a great nightcap at the infamous Willie T’s. It’s an open-air bar and restaurant with live music and full of character. They have day and night specials to choose from. I recommend trying their mojito and Sesame Seared Tuna salad. Make your mark and good fortune by writing your name on a dollar.

This place has something for everyone. Next time, I will plan for a longer stay to get in-depth with the history of Key West.
