Key West recap!

Thursday, May 7, 2015

I'm baaaack! Key West/Sunset Key was amazing and a much needed getaway! I have been meaning to do a recap since earlier this week but a terrible case of bronchitis + having a rotation 2 hours from home makes for no free time. 

We had a house rented on Sunset Key which was just a short 2 minute boat ride from Key West. Sunset Key was SO nice, I highly recommend it! It is absolutely gorgeous and quaint. It allows you to get away from the craziness of Key West to relax but you are just a short boat ride away from all the madness.

Sunset Key is covered in fresh flowers! Love!

Thursday we arrive late morning and started the day with lunch at the pool by our house. I had way too many fresh mahi sandwiches. We relaxed all day then headed over to Key West for dinner and drinks. After dinner we went to a drag show which was traumatizing hilarious. I was worried that I was going to have nightmares. The guys, errrr girls (?) really loved my husband which was weird and somewhat pissed me off. So after being scarred for life, we headed to a bar with live music. It was so much fun sitting outside with drinks and music and family!


Friday dad had a boat chartered to take us snorkeling and exploring all day. Y'all, I TOUCHED A SEA TURTLE! Dream. come. true. A huge school of dolphins also swam beside our boat for a while which was incredible. It was an amazing day that I won't forget!

 Love my daddy

Saturday morning we had breakfast at Blue Heaven, which is Kenny Chesney's favorite spot in Key West! It is the neatest outside dive restaurant with the best food. I had eggs benedict and homemade banana bread which were both out of this world. We did some shopping on Duval Street and the rest of the day was spent relaxing on the beach and by the pool. Saturday night we went to a "sunset party" that had street performers, drinks, etc. I had the best guacamole that was made right in front of me! yum! And that sunset… I can't even. Thank you, Lord!

Our view for dinner on Sunset Key… absolutely breathtaking

Sunday we did the Conch Train Tour which takes you around Key West and shows you all the "landmarks" and educates you on the history of Key West. Honestly, I was dreading it but decided to go because dad really wanted to. However, it was SO much fun and so educational. I highly recommend it! We finished the day with bloody mary's and a few hours by the pool then it was time to head home and back to reality.


Please let me know if you are planning a trip to Key West! I'd love to give you recommendations on restaurants/bars and things to do! If you are looking for a spot with pristine, white beaches and crystal blue water, Key West is not your spot. However, if you are looking for a fun vacation with snorkeling, drinks, and hot weather, Key West is the answer!

  4. Yeah, I don't know if a drag show would be my thing...I guess it sort of a compliment that everyone liked your husband...but still rather awkward. I would not have wanted to stay there, either.
    Beautiful pictures!
