The 7 Best Things about Key West’s DRY TORTUGAS

Picture this: you step onto a sea-plane, where everyone gets a window seat. The plane takes off, and you soar at low heights over the brilliant turquoise waters. Sea and sky is everywhere you look. Then, in the distance, you see the island and a structure emerging like a phoenix from the water: the pentagon-shaped Fort Jefferson, the largest brick building in the Western Hemisphere…

When planning a trip to Key West, be sure to include a day trip to the Dry Tortugas. We promise you it will be a trip of a lifetime.

Here are just 7 reasons the Dry Tortugas National Park is a must-see:

1.     THE SEAPLANE
Just getting there is an amazing adventure! If you’ve never been on a seaplane, this is the trip to 
take one. Spot sharks, dolphins, and the "Flats". This is a body of very shallow water only 3-5 feet deep, extending almost 20 miles. This area is part of the National Marine Sanctuary and has incredible marine and bird life. There are many other sights along the route to the Dry Tortugas, including private islands, WWII wreckage, and Marquesas Islands, which is a large circular group of coral islands. The plane makes a smooth landing at Fort Jefferson, where you begin your magical trip of a lifetime. http://keywestseaplanecharters.com/

2.     SNORKELING
Enter an alternate universe under the sea, and enjoy a magical view. Swim among a rainbow of spectacular sea life, see coral-encrusted ship wrecks, a myriad of spectacular fish, moray eels, jellyfish, and more. And you don’t have to be experienced to try it for the first time! Expert guides will be there every step of the way with you, as you leave the mundane behind in exchange for a deep sea or shallow water adventure of a lifetime.

3.     HISTORY & LORE
From history to lore, there are tales to tell about this fascinating fort. For starters, the fort is the 
largest brick building in the western hemisphere. The Park is actually a 100 square miles but 98% of it is under water. The 7 tiny island that make up the Dry Tortugas account for only 97 acres in total. During the Civil War, the fort was used as a military prison for captured deserters. It also held the four men convicted of complicity in President Abraham Lincoln's assassination in 1865, the most famous being Dr. Samuel Mudd.

4. SPECTACULAR WILDLIFE 
Fort Jefferson is a bird-watchers paradise. Rare birds frequent the island due to its central location in the migratory process. Key West Seaplane Charters. Some of the common and rare species you will encounter include: Roseate and Bridled Terns, Masked and Brown Boobies, Red-Necked Phalarope, Red-Footed Boobie, the Caribbean Short-Eared Owl, White-Tailed Tropicbird, Shiny Cowbird and the Golden Warbler.

5. WALKING THE MOAT WALL
The Moat Wall offers an easy hike (0.6 miles) around the fort. Walking the moat wall is a great opportunity to view coral, fish, and other marine life. An amazing excursion that you wouldn’t expect on a tropical island vacation.

6. FISHING
Enjoy casting into the crystal blue waters in a secluded paradise where you can catch an abundant array of marine fish. You can also lobster and spear fish here.

7. CAMPING
If camping is your thing, then add the Dry Tortugas to your camping bucket list. It’s an experience of a lifetime. Imagine sleeping under the stars, on an island 70 miles from civilization, with the warm tropical breezes blowing through palm trees and the ocean waves ebbing and flowing in the night. You will never forget this trip. Camping is limited so make your reservations now.

Key West The Right Way

6 Top Ways to DO Key West on a BUDGET!


So you want to go to Key West but think you can’t afford it? We think you can! Read on for the how to’s! Top 6 Ways to DO KEY WEST on a BUDGET!

1. COME TO KEY WEST DURING THE OFF SEASON

We can’t say it enough. The off-season here rocks, and a lot of people don’t even realize how much cheaper it is. The official off season is April-December, but we think the best three months to visit are May, September and early October. Why? Everything is cheaper, less crowded, and the deals abound. Airfare and hotel lodging are also on the cheap. You will be shocked at the amount of money you can save on an off-season trip—so much so that you might just come back AGAIN with all the money you saved!

2. SLEEP OFF THE BEATEN PATH

Hotel lodging can make or break the bank, depending on where you stay. One of our best insider tips is to stay in a hotel or motel that is not on Duval Street (the main street in Key West) or next to a big attraction like the boardwalk or Southernmost point. In other words, find a hotel off the beaten path, or better yet, stay in a guesthouse! A guest house is a phenomenal way to save money, as well as add intimacy and charm to your visit. There are a slew of B&Bs, guest houses and family-owned inns to choose from. CLICK HERE to See some Key West Hotels.

3. INDULGE IN THE FREEBIES

There are a gazillion things free things to do in Key West. From the sunset celebration in Mallory Square, strolling Duval Street, visiting the Key West Wildlife Center, and throwing a Frisbee nekkid at the beach (you may get in trouble, but people do it!). hey weren’t kidding when they said some of the best things in life are free.

4. MANGIA IN SEPTEMBER!

Shhh… Here’s a little-known, insider secret: September restaurants in Key West have killer dining specials. If you come here for the food alone, you will save a bundle. A few notable September deals: Tavern in Town (at the Marriott Key West Beachside) has a happy hour dinner special – everything (yes we said everything!) on their menu is $19.99, including steak and seafood!. Azur Restaurant has a September special $6 menu. Come on, dinner for six bucks? What’s not to love? That’s five more free margaritas for you!

5. DRIVE...OR TAKE THE FERRY

You can take a ferry from Fort Myers Beach to Key West. Why drive if you can do this? With
plenty of seats, a bar stocked with bevvies, snacks and food, and even multiple TVs in the off-chance the breathtaking view is a bore!

6. DO WHAT THE KEY WEST LOCALS DO!

Everyone that has done even a little internet research on Key West knows about Duval Street, the Mallory Square Sunset Celebration, and the Ernest Hemingway House. Those are must-sees! But we think the best way to save money and have a blast is to walk in the shoes of the locals. Dig a little deeper in your research (and check out THIS web site!!) for some cool, lesser-known adventures like the wacky Key West Cemetery, West Martello Tower, the unmarked home of Tennessee Williams, free Higgs Beach, and free wine and cheese gallery openings.

So come on down on a budget! The weather in Key West is HOT. The beers are cold. The pools are heaven. The nightlife is a fantasy. You don’t have to be a billionaire to visit Paradise. You just have to visit.

Top 7 Reasons Why Key West is an Easy Getaway

 

Top 7 Reasons Why Key West is an Easy Getaway
 

A getaway to Paradise that’s quick, easy, and affordable? Yep, for real. If you’ve been daydreaming at your desk lately about brilliant turquoise waters, spectacular sunsets, partying til the break of dawn, and enjoying a few days filled with sun and fun, then a getaway to Key West may be just what the doctor ordered. Sure there are lots of sunny places to getaway to, so why Key West? For starters, here are 7 reasons Key West is the tropical tops…

1.     Easy Access Flights
Key West is the Southern most point of the Continental U.S., which makes it feel worlds away, but at the same time, it is super easy to get to. You can fly into Miami direct and catch a quick, 45-minute commuter flight from Miami to Key West. You’re in. Easy peasy.
 
2.     Drivable (and GORGEOUS!)
Not only can you drive to the furthest island in the magical string of Florida Keys, but you are also guaranteed the most scenic drive of your life! SEE: The Most Beautiful Drives in the USA. Make that amazing drive an adventure and stop up the keys for lunch. There are so many waterfront places to eat, your hardest choice is to choose where. You can also swim with the Dolphins, or stop at Bahia Honda beach or Pennekamp Park. The beaches have white sand, warm waters that are shallow enough for your kids to play in safely, or to lay in yourself and catch some rays.
 
3.     There’s Even a Ferry!
You can take a ferry from Fort Myers Beach to Key West. If you've made the drive and want to start your party a little early, then the Ferry is definitely something you should do. They usually have a live musician singing your favorite island music. It's a great way to start your party! There is plenty of seating, a bar stocked with bevvies, snacks and food, and even multiple TVs in the off-chance the breathtaking view is a bore!
 
4.     No Passport Required
You can practically throw a stone to Cuba from the island of Key West, yet it is as American as baseball and Apple Pie. No passport or birth certificate required. Just get here. Then party.
 
5.     It’s Cheaper During Off-Season
Come during the off-season and you are guaranteed an unforgettable vacation that won’t break the bank...too badly. Hotels, eats, entertainment, and airfare are all on the budget-minded side of the fence. Read through some of the blog entries on this site for some other great, off-the-beaten-path deals and steals. SEE: The Best Things In Life Are Free
 
6.     Watersports are Safe
Key West is the capital of water sports, for both novices and pros, so everyone can enjoy the magical, aqua waters and feel confidently safe. The sports are all regulated and must pass Key West safety standards.  Check out all the amazing variety of ways you can enjoy the glorious ocean in Key West here: Key West Watersports Options
 
7.     The Weather is AMAZING Year-round

That means if you are coming from the land of the ice and snow, you are guaranteed a spectacular un-filled getaway. And if you are just coming for a quick getaway, the packing is light: flip flops, bathing suit, sun glasses and sunscreen. And of course a couple cute outfits for strolling along Duval Street day and night! SEE: Top bars in Key West

La Creperie Key West is a Bucket List Must

Oui! Oui! Let Them Eat Crepes!

That warm and welcoming smile you see in the photo is La Creperie restaurant owner Julie De Cock. It's obvious when you see her in action that she takes pride
in her restaurant. Making sure that every plate is a piece of art, she creates a mouth-watering dish that will leave you craving for more. Julie uses organic and non-GMO ingredients when they are available so you know you're always getting the best ingredients. 

Julie and her husband Laurent, who also own Viv Wine & Cheese Bar next door are the perfect couple who share an equal passion for food, wine, and of course Key West. Their desire to bring their old world wine and food knowledge to Key West has made La Creperie one of the best-loved restaurants on the island. 

La Creperie is a local and tourist favorite. Guests even go as far as to put their visit to La Creperie Restaurant on their  Key West Bucket List, distinguishing La Creperie as a tourist hotspot like the Southernmost Point or The Harry Truman White house. You will never be disappointed tasting her delicious crepes, omelets, or anything else delectable that's on La Creperie's menu. 

There’s something magical about La Creperie; warm, welcoming,
and simply delightful. You feel like you’re in a warm and tropical French Bistro, where you can relax and stop and smell the roses... or in this case, crepes. Delicious and heavenly crepes. 

La Creperie is simply magnificent! Come see for yourself. Located in Bahama Village, directly across from another Key West bucket list, Blue Heaven. Bon Appetit!

10 of Key Wests Most Romantic Things to Do
Written by Dianne Ackerman 

We all know Key West is the Party Capital of the World, but lest we forget how utterly romantic it is too. If you want to take a break from the wild shenanigans of Duval Street, do yourself a favor and experience Key West in an equally unforgettable way. This is romance that rivals any Hollywood movie, because this is real. This is true romance. This is Key West.

1. Watch the Sunset on the beach

There is nothing more soul-rejuvenating than the beach. You can spend the day under a cabana

looking at the brilliant blue waters. But we want to tell you how utterly romantic a sunset on the beach is here in Key West. The sky puts on a breathtaking show that begins at sundown. That giant, glorious orange ball of the sun will slowly descend into the brilliant blue sea, sending strands of purple, pink, and yellow up into a sky that sparkles with a million twinkling stars. Sharing the view with a special someone will create memories of a lifetime. Promise. http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/key-west-sunset-sail.html

2. Kiss underwater

(You can probably do more than kiss, but you didn’t hear it from us!)
You’ll have to take off your snorkel to do it. Yes, that means we want you to try snorkeling in the glorious keys with your honey. Key West is home to the only living coral reef in the U.S., which means you are promised a breathtaking view of a rainbow of sealife under water. With the sunlight shimmering in the water and the beautiful colors all around, what better place to plant a wet one on your sweetie?
http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/key-west-snorkeling.html

3. Feed each other oysters

Do the math: Oysters (nature’s aphrodisiac) + Key West (the most romantic place on earth) = The MOST Romantic Date you will ever have. Oh, and don’t forget to wash them down with some champagne. Here are some of our favorite places for oysters in Key West: Half Shell Raw Bar, Alonzo’s Oyster Bar, The Stoned Crab, Sunset Pier, Conch Republic. Thank us later! http://www.partyinkeywest.com/pages/keywestrestaurants.html

4. Rent a Scooter

Hop on a scooter with your sweetie at your back, and cruise around the island tandem style. There is nothing more romantic than heading to the southern-most tip of the island, enjoying the crystal blue vista (and possibly spotting Cuba in the distance!) and making out with your sweetheart under the brilliant blue sky. http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/keywestmopedrentals.html

5. Sunset sail

It’s a cinematic and spectacular scene: you step aboard a gorgeous schooner, share a glass of bubbly, and watch the golden sun sink into the pink horizon. The stars emerge in the night sky, and you both contemplate the amazing day you shared in magical Key West. Could there possibly be anything more romantic than that? http://partyinkeywest.com/pages/keywestsightseeing.html

6. His and Hers Massages

Enjoying a massage together is an especially sensual and romantic date that you will remember for years to come. After a long day of swimming, or kayaking or dancing the night away, it can’t get any better than a fantastic massage with you sweetie at your side enjoying the same thing. You can have a massage in a quiet, candle-lit spa, or you can enjoy it al fresco on the beach. Either way, you will both be ready to enjoy another day in Paradise after your professional massage brings you to the deepest level of serenity. What could be more romantic than that?


7. Kayak on the Gulf of Mexico

Aaahhh, just the two of you, the paddle, the sounds of water lapping…nothing spells romance like
kayaking in the hideaway of the back country waters on the Gulf of Mexico. This Key West waterscape is like being in another world. You can hear yourself think here, you can enjoy each other’s company without fighting to be heard in a noisy bar, and you can enjoy the day doing something totally different and unexpected. Super romantic. www.keyskayaking.com

8. Parasail together

You’ve most likely spent each day in Key West either on the sand or under the water, so why not try a little sky-high romance? Soar in the silence above brilliant green waters, enjoy the gentle breeze and turquoise sky while watching dolphins jump below, view the sailboats and skyline, or even a glimpse of your hotel in the distance. If you ride tandem, you can enjoy all this holding hands. This is bliss. And since you're going to Parasail in Key West, you may as well do it with the BEST; Sunset Watersports. GO TO SUNSET WATERSPORTS

9. Jetski

So you’ve had your nice, quiet kayak day in the Gulf (see number 4). Now for a totally different kind of day on the water, try renting a jetski for two and share an exhilarating ride around the entire island! Like a motorcycle for the water, jetskis have been a popular activity choice for Key West vacationers for years. Many tours offer a pit-stop at a sand bar to enjoy the vistas, to take a dip in the water, and just to enjoy the view.
GO TO KEY WEST WATERTOURS

10. Have a candlit dinner on the beach

Nothing like enjoying some amazing Key West food at a dinner table where you can feel the sand in your toes. Candles, sunset, ocean views, the sound of the breeze and waves…I mean, come on, this just screams romance. We promise you this will be a night you will not likely forget, and will rival anything Clark Gable could have dished up to Vivien Leigh back in the day. Whether you want to pop the question or rekindle the fires of your decades-long romance, this is the place to do it. Find your Key West Beach at PartyInKeyWest.com!

Unique Things You Can Only Do In Key West

Anyone can party on Duval Street...in fact, that's probably the biggest reason you've planned your trip to Key West. It's fun, and with the right people, it can be one of the best partying you can have. What we want to talk about is unique to only Key West. We have a list of things that you can only do in Key West that you can't do anywhere else.

Here is our list of the top 14 Unique Things that you can only do in Key West:


The park is renowned for its marine life, pirate legends, historic stories, white sandy beaches and of course, the Great Florida Barrier Reef. Get there by Seaplane, Key West Seaplane Adventures, or by boat, but it's definitely one of the most amazing places you will ever see.

2. Tour Ernest Hemingway's house
Whether you're a fan of Hemingway's writing, his outdoorsy lifestyle or you like six-toed cats, then you must see the house that Ernest Hemingway wrote some of his most-famous works. It's very inspiring for all wanna-be writer's.  

 You probably haven't done a scavenger hunt as an adult quite like this one. Learn bits of Key West's history, drink in the most-famous bars, and laugh hysterically with your friends as you race to find the clues to win! It's a great way to see Key West in a unique way. 


The Originator of the Key West Ghost Tour, David Sloan will show you all of the haunted houses and tell the tales that will surely send goosebumps down your back...or is that a ghost touching you?! Go find out for yourself. It's unique to Key West and a must-do. 
David Sloan's Ghost Hunt Key West

5. Take the Island 26 mile Island Tour Around Key West
Do the adventure of a lifetime and see Key West on a Jetski. We suggest Key West Water Tours (there are others, but go with the best!). Makes the best memories of fun and sun...and did we mention...you're on a freakin' jetski! Nothing better than that!


6. Go to the Southernmost Point
The most famous landmark in Key West. It's a must-do. Sometimes it's a wait to get your photo, but bring your beverage and wait and capture your famous image with this famous landmark. It's pretty cool standing in the southernmost point of the continental United States. 

7. Go to Mallory Square for Sunset
Key West is most famous for its amazing sunsets. Watching from Mallory Square, you will see street performers unique to Key West. You can buy a cold beverage and enjoy the show as you wait for sun to hit the horizon. 

The Florida Reef (also known as the Great Florida Reef) is the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States. It is the third largest coral barrier reef system in the world and it's simply amazing to see. It's one to check off the ol' bucket list for sure. 


The waters are calm, the wildlife is plenty, and it's just you wand the shallow waters of Key West and the Lower Keys. We suggest Capt. Andrea Paulson with Reelax Charters. She knows all of the best places to get the  most out of your kayaking experience. 


10. Eat the best Key Lime Pie 
You decide on who makes the best one. There are so many different styles to choose from, it will be fun sampling Key West's unique dessert.    


11. Go have a margarita at the original Margaritaville
Margaritaville started in Key West  and you just need to have one in the original location so you can check it off of your bucket list and drink where it all started!


12. Go to the oldest bar in Key West 
Captain Tony's bar in Key West is officially the oldest bar in Key West. Did you know it used to be the original Sloppy Joe's Bar? Go and have an icy cold Rum Runner or beer and put your business card (or bra if you dare!) on the wall to mark that you've been to this famous landmark. 




13. Go to the Smallest Bar in Key West - see how many people you can fit in. 
Located right on Duval Street, The Smallest Bar is a famous landmark that you must go to. See how many friends you can fit into the bar and try to break the record. It's a blast and the drinks are always cold and refreshing.

14. Go to the End Of The Road
Go to where US1 ends (and the Party Begins!) and get your photo taken at this famous landmark. And you may as well post it on your favorite social media and make all your friends back home jealous!

10 Reasons Sun Is Good For You

10 Reasons Sun Is Good For You

Key West Sunshine is good for your health! 

Key West Beach
Everyone loves the sun! Even back in the Stone Age people knew of the Sun's strength, even worshiping the strength and power they got from it. Sun can heal or hinder a life, depending on your use. Using sunscreen, you can enjoy all of the strength and power from the sun to your advantage. Here are the 10 reasons why the sun is good for you:

1. Sunlight helps in cases of chronic or acute depression. 

2. Sunlight improves your mood and moral Sunlight helps stimulate the synthesis of endorphins (good-feeling hormones). That's why we get depressed in the cold and dark days of the winter and are happy in the summertime.

3. The sun is good against insomnia. Daytime exposure to sunlight increases the melatonin production during the night. This hormone helps regulate the sleep. 

5. As vitamin D and some related compounds impede the development of some cancer cells, we can say the sun fights off this disease. Regular and controlled exposure to the sun has a preventive effect against cancer of colon, breast, leukemia and lymphomas. Under the action of the sunlight, the skin synthesizes vitamin D, which makes possible  calcium absorption in the intestine, helping the organism grow strong bones. This way the sun prevents Rachitism (Rickets) in both children and adults and osteoporosis in elders. 


Key West Sunset
6. Exposure to the sun strengthens the cardiovascular system. Blood circulation is improved , the pulse, arterial pressure, moderately high glycemia and cholesterol levels can be normalized.  Many skin diseases (dermatitis) can be controlled and even cured through controlled exposure to the sun. he sun rays are proven to strengthen the immune system . 

7. Sun rays improve liver functioning, being effective in treating jaundice.

8. They help  the kidneys with a part of their job, as the sun waves favor the elimination of waste products through the skin, when we sweat.

9. The sun also helps losing weight by increasing the metabolic rate through the stimulation of the thyroid. It also eases symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. 

10. The sun rays also ease the healing of the swollen joints during peaks of inflammation in cases of arthritis.
