How To Find Great Bars In Key West

Can you believe someone wrote a book on where to find some of the best bars in Key West? I was rummaging over on Amazon and came across this book. This couple, Mark Lee and his wife started going to Key West in 1999 and fifteen years later writes a travel guide about the best places to find that cool drink and even some great food while you are in the Keys. There are even resources to finding a hotel that doesn’t cost and arm and a leg and attractions you may want to see. Pictures galore fill the book so you can see for yourself the real Key West, not some glorified photo shoot some travel photographer took. Continue reading

Florida’a No Name Key



About 30 miles from Key West is a small island in the Florida Keys called No Name Key. If you are on Big Pine Key you can get to No Name via a wide, concrete bridge. The bridge is actually a pretty popular fishing spot because it has wide pedestrian lanes on each side. But this tiny island gets lots of visitors and the reason why is to see the Key Deer whose home is on this 998 acre island.

Funny thing is 820 acres are protected because this is the home of the National Key Deer Refuge. Yet people do live here, there are about 43 homes currently and visitors and residents alike like to hike through the refuge or kayak around the island. Continue reading

How To Find Affordable Key West Hotels



One of the most important things to do when you are going to the Keys, is to secure a place to stay. If you are like me and hubby and decide to just take a random road trip in the middle of winter, then you may want to stick with some affordable chain hotels. We personally like Best Western. The rooms are always clean and roomy and breakfast in the morning saves a bundle. We are not morning people, so a continental breakfast with our coffee is just enough to hold us over. First, I’ll show you a video of the Best Western we stayed at on our way to Key West.

When we were in Port St. Lucie we stopped here: Continue reading

Key Largo – First stop, Holiday Inn

Florida Keys Map



The Florida Keys have hundreds of hotels, motels and places to stay ranging from modest prices to high end. You have to know that if you go unprepared as we did, the room prices can be a bit high, just like anywhere else you would go without checking first. But  hey, that’s the fun of a road trip if you can do it!  Now the plus side of not making arrangements for your Keys Vacations is this; We found an awesome hotel in Key Largo that dropped their price almost $50 when we stopped in to check out their room rates. Can you believe it was a Holiday Inn? Continue reading

Restaurant Certificates


Food For A Fraction Of The Cost

I have just had some great experiences with a new site that I ‘ve got to tell you about! Restaurant gift certificates are a great way to save a few dollars when you are traveling. Let me tell you about my savings so that when you do decide to go to the Florida Keys, you can save some money on your way there, as well as in the Florida Keys.

When I first found Restaurant.com, I was planning a trip to Gettysburg PA. So, hubby and I took our grand kids to see a place called Land of the Little Horses. We found a certificate for a nice outside dining restaurant there. I kept checking the website and one day they had a sale of 80% off on their certificates. So, I checked out places to eat and found a great place. Of course, skeptical as I am, I called the Restaurant myself to make sure they took the certificates. The lady on the other end knew exactly what I was talking about but knowing it was a legit place of business to get certificates made me feel better! I sure didn’t want to get to Gettysburg and find out the certificates were a rip off! Continue reading
