Do you know if you're cut out for doing Key West or not? Inhabited by those seeking out warmer climates, tropical waters and a laid-back life Key West isn't always everyone's cup of tea.. or should we say rum. So let's see if this unique, strange and sometimes peculiar island is right for you. By the end of our quick quiz, (and there won't be a quiz afterwards), you will know if you're cut out for doing Key West:

1. Do you like tropical weather?
If you're into wearing flip flops, a beach hat, shorts, swimsuit, or even body paint (during Fantasy Fest or Bike Week or any other fun festival that happens to be going on),  then your answer is yes! Move on to question two.

2. Do you like to hear live music while you're drinking? 
If you love listening to talented musicians singing island music while playing their guitar, then your answer is yes. Move on to question three.

3. Do you need Air Conditioning to survive?
If you can't handle the heat, then get out of the kitchen because Key West is the island of perpetually amazing weather.  If you don't need air conditioning to survive, then move to question four.

4. Are you afraid to be without your car?
Key West is a walking city. The island is only two miles by five miles and unless you're staying a little ways up the keys, then you don't need to rent a car. You can walk from bar to bar, (also known as the Duval Crawl) and if you don't mind (or prefer) getting some exercise with your partying, then move on to question five.

5. Are you afraid to part with your hard-earned money?
Key West can be expensive. It's an amazing place but it can put a dent in your wallet. If you want to see how to do Key West on the Cheap click here. But, if you think it's money well spent, then move on to question six.

6. Do you like people?
Key West is surprisingly busy for a two by five mile island. There are times of the year, you will wonder if you're in Times Square or in Key West...except you'll be wearing flip flops and the dress attire is whatever (and we mean whatever) you want wear.  Everyone loves Key West and also loves being on vacation, so you can image how friendly everyone is. You can hop from bar to bar making new friends the entire way.  So if you're not afraid to belly up the bar and say hi to the people next to you then you're a Key West fan and have passed the test and you're 100% cut out for doing Key West!

KEY WEST, Florida Keys — The "Must Do" List of The Very Best of Key West
Whether you're short on time or simply looking for the ultimate Key West experience, Party in Key West has the inside scoop on the very best the island has to offer. Whatever your vacation plans, the list below can help save you time and money during your Key West trip by taking you straight to the top of every must-do list out there.



THE BEST OF THE BEST IN KEY WEST FOR 2017


Best People-Watching: Duval Crawl
A stroll down Key West's most famous street is practically a sociological investigation in itself. Street performers, eccentric locals, and drunken revelers are just the tip of the iceberg. The Duval Crawl, a tour and drink sampling of the bars along Duval, will give you plenty to watch - maybe even more than you bargained for! 

Best People-Meeting: Southernmost Scavenger Hunt
The Scavenger Hunt has all the fun of a Pub Crawl with the excitement of a Scavenger Hunt. This adult only event focuses on the more uninhibited side of Key West. It’s a whirlwind adventure around some of our most well known watering holes and hidden local hotspots – think of it as the “Duval Crawl” with a twist!  More Info on the Scavenger Hunt.

Coldest Beer in Key West: The Tiki Hut at Caroline's
Caroline's is an all-outdoor bar right at the heart of Duval. Its square, thatched-roof bar sits practically on Duval's sidewalk and consistently lures thirsty travelers with the irresistible temptation of ice-cold bottled brews. Don't feel like hanging out? Pour your beer in a cup and keep on strolling. More Info

Best Happy Hour: Conch Republic Seafood Company
You can't beat icy cold beer and The Conch Republic Seafood's buy 1 get 1 free drink special! They also have well drinks and good house wines with the same discount. They have live music and it's just a fun place to hang out. It's always busy so you know it's going to be a fun time. They have amazing appetizers and great happy hour prices. Not to mention, the view from the bar is quite amazing. It's a local and tourist favorite place to go for happy hour and then dinner after (the fish is locally caught and fresh and delicious!). It's a must-go!  More information on the Conch Republic Seafood Company


Best Bloody Mary: Blue Heaven
A Bloody Mary is one of the best hangover cures (we've heard). The best Bloody Mary in Key West is at Blue Heaven, a laid-back spot on Thomas St. with live music twice a day. You don't even have to wait for lunch - Blue Heaven is open for breakfast and Sunday brunch! You just gotta have it! More Info on Blue Heaven

Fun-est Bar: Irish Kevin's
The biggest nightly party in Key West is definitely at Irish Kevin's on Duval. Located near the north end of Duval, Irish Kevin's is a hot spot for locals and visitors alike. Single girls, be on the lookout for local Coasties and Seamen - Irish Kevin's is a popular military bar too! Find Fun Bars In Key West.

Best Live Music: The Green Parrot
The Green Parrot is more than a bar; it is a Key West icon; it is Key West. It has been so many things, to so many people, for so many years. And that spirit will never change. The Parrot is a jury of non-judging peers, a rugged and ragged council of friends. It is a place of hi-jinks and misadventures, of understated kindnesses, and everyday miracles. It has seen all manner of human exploits, from poetry slams to divorce celebrations, from memorial services to hurricane parties and pet birthday bashes, from tattoo contests to fundraising benefits. Oh, and they always have the best bands. Catch the warm up at 6:30pm, go have dinner and then come back for the live shows at 9pm.

Best Beach: Fort Zachary Taylor
Key West isn't known for it's beaches, but we do have a few nice ones. So throw on your swimsuit, and don't forget sunscreen, and head to Fort Zack. More Info On Things To Do

Best New Hotel On the Island - Marquesa 4-1-4
The transformation of the historic properties across the street from the original Marquesa is now complete! Introducing Marquesa 414, a compound of three buildings set around a central swimming pool and fountain. As a Marquesa guest, you’ll have access to both Marquesa properties, the three pools and dining at Cafe Marquesa. A block from Duval Street, and a short walk to anything downtown, it's beautiful, relaxing, and a great new addition to our little island. More Info on the Marquesa 4-1-4

Best Key West Bucket List: The Seaplane Adventure to The Dry Tortugas
70 miles west of Key West, Florida lies North America's most inaccessible National Park, the Dry Tortugas. The park is renowned for its marine life, pirate legends and sheer unspoiled beauty. It is dominated by its central feature, the majestic Fort Jefferson, the largest brick building in the western hemisphere. Step back in time and explore the history that is Fort Jefferson. Sunbathe on a remote white sand beach or snorkel the living reef in the warm crystal clear waters. See More Info


Best Outside-Your-Comfort-Zone Experience: Garden of Eden
Feeling daring? Climb those nondescript stairs near the middle of Duval (at The Bull and Whistle) and head straight on up to the Garden of Eden, a clothing-optional bar that draws the island's most devoted partyers. You don't have to totally disrobe, but hey, why not at least get a little ... topless?


Best Way To Get Around The Island: Pirate Scooter Rentals
The best way to experience your vacation is on your own Moped or Scooter! There is nothing like strolling around on your scooter, with the wind in your hair, navigating around the island with ease.  Electric Cars when you're in Key West, FL. We are open 9:00 am to 9:00 pm 7 days a week. Our trained staff offer free training to ensure your safety. We want your stay to be as enjoyable as possible, after all you are going to be on a vacation. More Info on Pirate Rentals

Best Pool for Drinking and Swimming: Dante's
It's hot in Key West...so you may as well get a refreshing beverage and hit the pool at Dante's. It's always a party. It's always fun. The drinks are refreshing. It's one of the only places in Key West that you can publicly eat, drink, relax and make friends of course. During Spring Break...it will be busy and never a dull moment. Find Fun Bars in Key West

Best Sunset on the Island: Sunset Celebration on Mallory Square
No competition here. Mallory Square has the most beautiful sunsets in Key West, hands down. The nightly Sunset Celebration is always different but always exciting and memorable. Grab a drink and enjoy the view!

Best Sunset on the Water: Sunset Watersport's Live Music Sunset Cruise
From the best seat in the house aboard the World Famous "Party Cat". LOWEST PRICE ON THE ISLAND. 2 Hour Cruise in Key West harbor Free Draft Beer & Soft Drinks. Best Party sunset cruise on the island! It's a blast! You make a lot of friends! Best photo sunset photo opportunities. And did we mention fun?!

Best Watersports Adventure: Key West Water Tours Ultimate Island Jetski Tour
Three times a day, Key West Water Tours at Hurricane Hole Marina offers an unparalleled two-hour, 26-mile jetski tour of the Key West perimeter and small neighboring islands. Passengers enjoy stops along the way at the Southernmost Point and historic Key West Harbor, among others, as well as time to play in the water! Keep your eyes peeled during the tour for glimpses of urchins, stingrays, turtles, jellyfish, dolphins and manatees. It's so much fun riding free out on the water on your own jetski! And you get a free beer at the end of the tour. Can't beat that! More info on the Best Jetski Island Tour

Best Midnight Snack: Angelina's Pizza
Dinner was hours ago and you're six drinks deep, but everything's closed. Well ... not everything. Angelina's serves hot, cheesy, delicious slices until the wee hours of the morning. Pass all the others and go directly to Angelina's. Girls, you may even get a flirt or wink from the guys making the pizza. Don't go back to your room hungry!

Best Dance Music: "TIE" between Garden of Eden and Rick's/Durty Harry's
Key West doesn't have many clubs, but you can still get your dance on at a number of nightspots in Old Town. Get sweaty on the dance floor to the hottest club hits at Garden of Eden or Rick's/Durty Harry's. The party goes on almost all night, so dress to impress nobody...come as you are...and pace yourself! Find Fun Bars in Key West

    Making The Perfect Key West Pina Colada

    Destination: Key West, Florida                                   

    How Did The Rum Runner Come to Exist?

    Where did it start, you ask? History says the famous drink dates back to the 1950's. The Story goes that Holiday IsleTiki Bar in IslamoradaFlorida (now The Postcard Inn) had an excess of rum and certain liqueurs that needed to be moved before the arrival of inventory. The bartenders created a very tasty concoction with this excess and Viola! The The Rum Runner was born! They named the drink after the real "Rum Runners" that inhabited the Florida Keys in the early days!

    Taste of Key West's Favorite Drink Even When You're Not on the Island


    Where did it start, you ask? History says the famous drink dates back to the 1950's.

The bartenders created a very tasty concoction with this excess and Viola! The The Rum Runner was born! They named the drink after the real "Rum Runners" that inhabited the Florida Keys in the early days!


    As with all great recipes, they are passed along and Key West adapted it as their official drink. Most recipes are altered by using different amounts of the same ingredients.  Sometimes an ingredient may be substituted or changed and the recipe will remain intact.The rules of the recipe are meant to be altered to suit your individual taste, but you can't change the main ingredients...RUM...and still call it a rum runner!

    The following recipe is a true Rum Runner recipe. It's not surprising that the Rum Runner recipe will be one
    of the most-flavorful, easiest, and favorite cocktails you will make. Try a "Rum Runner" at your next get together...and of course, enjoy! Click here to Find your Favorite Key West Bar to enjoy your Rum Runner.

    The Rum Runner Colada Recipe

    Ingredients: 
    Two cups of ice
    1 oz pineapple juice
    1 oz orange juice
    1 oz banana liqueur
    1oz of coconut milk
    1 oz light
    1 oz dark rum or aged rum
    Splash grenadine
    Optional: one ounce of Bacardi 151 to float on top
    Orange slice (optional)
    To make by the gallon use 24oz of each ingredient

    To Mix:

    Blended:

    Fill your blender with the ice.
    Add all of the liquid ingredients.
    Blend the contents until smooth.
    Pour into a Pina Colada glass and garnish with an orange slice.
    Add the 151 floater!

    On the Rocks:

    Fill glass with ice. Add the liquid contents. Pour the 151 in the straw or on the top. This is my favorite way to enjoy the Rum Runner. Colada! Hope you enjoy!

    No Pina Colada glass available? No worries, no problem. Anything that will hold liquid will work!

    Key West The Right Way

    TOP 12 MUST EATS in KEY WEST!

    Pack the feedbag, kids, because Key West is where you will surely indulge your every taste bud. We, the staff of Party in Key West, have sampled just about every culinary crumb this gorgeous little island has to offer, so trust us when we say we know where you should be eating!

    Belly up and dig in to our Top 12 Must Eats:


    12. El' Sibone
    What’s not to love about Cuban chow on the cheap? This family-owned, cozy little eatery is located in heart of Old Town Key West. Escape the craziness of Duval Street and have a seat at a table among locals. Key West is a stone’s throw to Cuba, so there is no better place to sample authentic Cuban cuisine in the U.S. than here. Dig into classic delectable like chicken and yellow rice, pepper steak, oxtail, as well as everyday award-winning dishes like Roast Pork, Paella Valenciana, and Siboney Steak. Go there now, thank us later! http://www.elsiboneyrestaurant.com/

    11. Blue Heaven
    This is the place you want to go to experience real Key West living. Famous Key West chickens http://www.blueheavenkw.com/
    and cats roam the grounds, and you can dine al fresco under a canopy made of a sail and surrounded by cute and quirky décor. There is an indoor dining room as well, if hanging out with the chickens isn’t your thing. Enjoy live music and serious (and we mean serious) island-style cuisine like Jamaican jerk chicken, Caribbean shrimp deglazed with Red Stripe (Um, hello? It is as amazing as it sounds!), and finish off the meal with a sublime Key Lime Pie. There is also a fantastic vegetarian menu that even local meat-eaters drool over.

    10. Tavern N Town (located in the Marriott Key West)
    You wouldn’t think a hotel restaurant it a must-go, but trust us, you haven’t had a seafood dinner til you’ve sampled the Plancha Pink Shrimp and Sea Scallops, served with bourbon mashed yams. And what about the gourmet pizzas with toppings like lobster in lemon cream or the housemade fennel sausage? The atmosphere is luxurious and simple. When you come, try to get a table in front of the Tapas Theater Kitchen, where you can watch gifted chefs create their works of art. http://tavernntown.com/

    9. Grand Cafe
    Step back in time as you dine within a gorgeous Victorian mansion. Lunch in the garden, enjoy a dinner looking at the stars on the wraparound porch, or sit in the air-conditioned dining room. Either way, you are destined for a culinary treat with beautifully presented and diverse dishes like tomato bisque with jumbo lump crabmeat, clams in garlic, wine, and butter, spicy Thai Curry, and Steak au Poivre. The beautiful café also hosts weddings, if dinner isn’t the only thing you had planned. http://www.grandcafekeywest.com/

    8. Pepe's
    First of all, this place rocks because it is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That is something to behold. Secondly, they serve all meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Thirdly, they have a kick-butt, daily happy hour with fresh margaritas and oysters. Fourth, they have killer desserts including famous Key Lime pie. Fifth, it’s casual, fun, with huge portions, and a fantastic atmosphere filled with locals. Sixth, what more could you want in a restaurant? We pretty much covered it! http://pepeskeywest.com/

    7. Azur
    This is your go-to place for Mediterranean delicacies. You can enjoy lunch, dinner, and dolmas (Greek for small plates, which you can share with friends). We are big fans of their beautiful brunch menu. Dig this: Key Lime stuffed French Toast, Crab Cake BLT, eggs of any style served with chewy, thick slices of Ciabatta toast, and mimosas to die for. The lunch and dinner menus boast fluffy bites of heaven like gnocchi with slow braised beef, and some of the most delicious homemade hummus and crispy eggplant chips you will ever taste. http://www.azurkeywest.com/

    6. 915
    Here is a not-too-miss eatery located right on Duval Street, so you can enjoy a killer dinner and people watch all at the same time. 915 boasts a beautiful wine list, with pairings for every course. Presentation is taken very seriously at this local’s foodie heaven, and your eyes as well as your tastebuds will feast on specialties like the impressive crispy whole Yellowtail Snapper, luscious, seafood feast called Soul Mama Soup, and Liberty Duck Confit with faro salad and fried kale. The beautiful and elegant eatery has also become a top choice for private parties. http://www.915duval.com/

    5. Michael 's
    The restaurant describes itself as “casual island elegance,” and we couldn’t have said it better. Located in Old Town, among the charming back streets of the city, you will enjoy the quiet oasis that is Michael’s. The famous warm chocolate volcano is out-of-control delicious. Just go there for the dessert and you will have died and gone to foodie heaven. But don’t skip the meal or you will have missed the famous Michael’s veal chop, grilled scallop salad, pepper encrusted tuna, and Allen Brothers Steaks, which are practically celebrity status on this island. Pair it all with a killer wine menu and you will need nothing more than a stroll under the stars to walk off the meal. http://www.michaelskeywest.com/

    4. Louie 's Backyard
    It almost seems too good to be true: a backyard that offer breathtaking ocean views along with http://www.louiesbackyard.com/
    some of the most delicious food on the planet? Yes. Trust us. If there is a celeb to be seen in Key West, you will probably see them here. So talk about bang for your buck! The Upper Deck is where you go for wine and small plates like fried artichokes and lemons, Korean pork and duck sliders, and toasted pesto gnocci. Dine in the Backyard for some of the most exquisite seafood entrees in Key West, like pan-roasted Salmon, Sweet Soy-glazed tuna, local Pink Shrimp with grits. This place is on the National Register of Historic Places, so it is an architectural as well as culinary delight.

    3. La Trattoria
    Come get your grub on Goodfella style with the classic Italian eatery that’s been here for over 30 years. With local seafood, fresh, authentic pasta dishes like Bolognese sauce and seafood ravioli, you can be guaranteed a good, old-fashioned Italian meal in the heart of charming Old Town. The also have a fantastic Martini menu and $5 Martini happy hour. Fuggedaboudit, this is as good as it gets. http://latrattoria.us/

    2. Santiago Bodega
    Sometimes all you need is a glass of wine and a few tapas to take you to another world. Come with some friends or a special someone to share a menu of small plates to tickle your culinary fancy. This is sensual food, so you can’t go wrong here if you are looking for a romantic dinner. Feed each other bites of goat cheese-stuffed dates, grilled shrimp and chorizo, or bites of cold meats and cheese plates, while you sip some of the most exquisite wines on the island, and consider yourself in Paradise. http://www.santiagosbodega.com/key-west/

    1. Cafe Marquesa
    This is Zagat’s highest-rated restaurant in Key West for a reason. No visit to this island would be complete without dinner at this upscale, New American eatery, located in the Marquesa Hotel. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation before you even step off the plane. This is special occasion dining to the max (although we consider just coming to Key West a special occasion!) and every bite will make you feel that special. Unique and artistic fare, first-rate service, romantic atmosphere: it’s all here. Chef Susan Ferry selects the finest seasonal and local seafood, produce and other ingredients, so the menu changes from season to season. Some unforgettable staples include Macadamia Crusted Yellowtail Snapper, Proscuitto Wrapped Black Angus Filet, and Conch & Blue Crab Cakes. A nightcap and a stroll around the stunning hotel grounds—complete with richly landscaped pools, rock waterfalls, and peaceful gardens—is the ultimate romantic night out. http://www.marquesa.com/cafe-marquesa.htm

    Top 3 Myths About Key West Debunked 

    Myth: Getting to Key West is a hassle

    Debunk: 
    Getting to Key West is a part of the adventure. There are so many options. You can make that magical drive to Key West down US 1 (and scratch that off your bucket list). It's one of the most beautiful drives in the USA. Make stops along the way...for lunch...to see Dolphins at Theater of the Sea...or sunbathe at Bahia Honda beach. Even if you don't stop, the drive is so beautiful, it will take your breath away. You can always go the traditional route of flying (it's exciting seeing the island appear overhead).
