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

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

Florida Keys Travel Safety Tips



I wanted to give you some tips on travel safety when you are in the Florida Keys. Where to go if you get hurt and you need a hospital or how to contact the police if need be. Traveling to another area can be just a horrendous experience if you don’t know who to contact in an emergency. I know there is 911 that you can call, but if you prepare yourself for the worst, the worst usually never happens. Better to be safe than sorry is what I always say.

There are 3 hospitals throughout the Keys. In the Upper Keys is the Mariner’s Hospital. It is at Mile Marker 91.5 in Tavernier. The phone number for the Mariner’s is 305-434-3000. Continue reading

Glass Bottom boats

If you are in the Florida Keys you will be able to find information on taking a tour on a glass bottom boat. In Key Largo, for instance, at the John Pennekemp State Park, tours leave on a large air conditioned cabin, which makes it a very comfortable ride.

Just what is a glass bottom boat? The hull of the boat has glass panels from which you can see everything in the water. The captain will take you over coral reef where you can see underneath the water up close without getting wet! Fish, like parrot fish, zebra, barracuda, snapper, nurse sharks, sting rays and grouper can be seen. You will see some beautiful and colorful coral like the purple fan, a very known soft coral that is very dominant in the Keys.

Kokomo in the Florida Keys?

Off the Florida Keys there’s a place called Kokomo

That’s where you wanna go to get away from it all

Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand

We’ll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band

Down in Kokomo



Does Kokomo really exist in the Florida Keys? If you’ve never heard of Kokomo, it was from a song the Beach Boys sang and everyone thought it was in the Florida Keys.

This midwestern city is known as the “City of Firsts” thanks to its rich automotive heritage and history of technological discoveries.
