Can't miss list

Can't miss list

Hi all,

My husband and I are both 30ish and will be in Key West for four days in mid-March. We're planning on doing an snorkeling/kayaking trip, visiting Mallory square, checking out Duval street, and maybe doing a ghost tour

My question is, what one thing (activity/restaurant/etc.) would you not leave Key West without doing?

Thanks for your tips. I'm already counting down the days!

I noticed no one has mentioned Hemmingway's house. Should we skip that?

I wouldn't put it on a "can't miss" list, but if you become interested in Hemingway sometime then it's something you can do in the future.

What ever you do - don't miss an opportunity to get out on the water. It is a MUST do! If it's clear and calm, you can see everything!

fish, kayak, snorkel etc etc etc

Get out on the water! Weather permitting of course.

My must-do is at least one Tuesday afternoon spent at Schooner Wharf Bar listening to Raven and at least one other afternoon at Schooner taking in Micheal McCloud. As for restaurants I have so many must-dos now that they more than fill up a week, so each trip I must decide which must-dos I have to skip for this trip in order to visit a few must-tries to see if they should become must-dos too.

Hi NoBeachesInColorado,

Geez, has no-one mentiioned this yet?

If you are there on a Friday, the Conch Republic Conch-tail (pronounced conk-tale) Hour is an absolute must... it will hook you up with other TA members who are enjoying a holiday in Key West plus some KW DEs.
