Key West has the most to offer when it comes to concentrated restaurants, activities and nightlife. If your objective is to just relax, take in a few sights, enjoy the water, eat & drink well then I'd spend most of my time there. The trip from mainland to Key West will take nearly all day with the speed limit zones (caution, do obey) and frequent stopping so try to get an early flight. Maybe pick a few places along the way beforehand that you want to visit then use any extra time for something that cathces your eye.

Thanks.  So we're booked to go.  Decided to do it the reverse direction, since the prices weren't that different. Flying directly to Key West, staying for 5 days, and then renting a car, driving up to Miami so we get to experience the drive, staying there one day and then flying home from there.  That should work out I hope.

 

I'll take any restaurant, activity or nightlife recommendations please!!!

You'll want to hit Mel Fisher's museum and Hemingway's house.  Mallory Square at sunset is mandatory and spend a relaxing hour or so on the Conch Train one afternoon.  You might also want to take a half-day fishing charter.

 

Check out Pepe's for breakfast.  One of the oldest places in Key West and they claim to have been open for breakfast every day for the last 35 years, or some such thing.  Sit outside.....

 

Beyond that, most "activities are  going to be centered around eating and drinking......on and adjacent to Duval Street.  Pace yourself, 5 days is a long time in that environment!    ;-)

 

Have fun!

Avoid the Hemingway House if you are allergic to cats!  That is why I did not go in.

Sounds like some fun ideas. Definitely writing some of this down.  Thanks!
