Omg! Once you landed at its Conch Republic Airport you know for sure you’re in a different kind of USA, the kind where it’s very laid back, like the time stop here.
Conch Republic Airport
I was here somewhere in late Spring 2017 for a whole week and wouldn’t leave if I could. And that’s how much I loved this Southernmost paradise.
Here are places that I went and I think you should too!
I spent every single day here playing in the water and laying on the beach, with its perfect 85 degrees weather, hell yeah!
The famous Duval Street
This street is like the tiny version of the Vegas Strip. So many things happening here, 24 hours period.
Form the yummiest homemade alcoholic gelato ever made to the sloppiest Joe ever.
More like a market for tourist where you get to see and wanted to buy souvenirs from the local artists, from handmade jewelries to hand made t-shirts.
So happy to see the beauty of sunset again, it was my first sunset in five years. Here you get to see some of the most amazing street performances while waiting for the pretty pretty sunset.
Key West Aquarium
It’s always love-hate feelings whenever I go to the zoo or aquarium and such, but at this place it was mostly hate, perhaps because I was sad with the size of where they keep them fish just for show was just way too tiny. I hope the fish and friends there got a better place now.
Truman Little White House
Named after the only US President who enjoyed being in Key West and made himself a tiny White House in this paradise key.
The Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum
Loved every single thing here but the cats and its graves (I’m never a cat lady)
Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
Pretty cool fort, I just can’t stand the giant iguanas that invested this place hehe.
The white rocky beach is also very nice for swimming or sunbathing.
A retro movie theater that serve alcohol, hell yeah! Watched one of the Avengers movie here.
Excited to take my picture next to the point here like everyone else, but not too excited about the line, it took 30 minutes and once it’s your turn, you will feel like the other people are rushing you, so you gotta take it fast, so I’m pretty sure everyone ended up having a so so picture here.
Key West Cemetery
Who plans to go and see a cemetery when you’re on vacation? I bet no one! But since the hotel I’d stayed was on the way to the places I went therefore I did went and see it. It was interesting just because the design was different from most cemetery in the US, I think it was because of the Spanish and Portuguese influences.
Higgs Beach Dog Park
Don’t have no dog but always wanted to have one. Seeing the dogs here being happy by the sea with their human buddies made me very happy! I’d get to see some with chickens wandering around too! Only in Key West!
Edward B. Knight Pier
It gets you closer to the water hehe
