Weekend in Key West

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
The best things are downtown, on and around Duval Street. Everything from the quaint, original bars / clubs to the chain places like Fat Tuesday's. There is a party atmosphere and it's very friendly. Be sure to see the street performers in Mallory Square before sundown. There are also lots of little shops for those who love shopping. :) Lots of great food and restaurants to choose from.Quick Tips: The sunsets are amazing, so be sure to catch a few. There are a few public beaches around the island in which the shuttles all stop at if you are not staying at a resort on the beach. Staying at a beach resort is not a must here since you are never far from one. I'd almost rather stay...Read More

Comfort Inn Key West

Hotel | "Comfort Inn"

Quote:
The accommodations were clean and nice for a regular hotel. They offer a breakfast every morning free to guests near the front lobby. A nice variety of danishes, muffins, toasts, waffles, cereals, etc. It is a stop right on the Bone Island Shuttle and you can buy tickets right at the front desk. It's fairly inexpensive and clean for a no-frills room. Not really near anything, but good for someone who just wants a room at a good price and can use the shuttle to get where they need to go.

Hard Rock Cafe

Restaurant

Quote:
A must for all hard rock fans. Instead of the huge elaborate buildings that usually house Hard Rocks, this is a old manor house that was converted into the restaurant. Construction is not really permitted in most areas of Key West (especially downtown), thus this is one of the truly unique Hard Rock Cafe's unlike any of the others. It's the same menu, but the unique surroundings make it a must for those who like to visit HRC. And of course you can pick up your t-shirt as always.

Duval Street

Attraction | "Duval Street in General"

It's a great atmosphere. Get your drink and take it with you. There are no laws to restrict you from drinking out in the open/on the street. Basically go bar hopping and see them all. Lots of varied places from local pubs, from larger venues with performers to the chains like Fat Tuesday's, etc. Everyone is friendly and there to have a great time. There are coupons all over to get you in the places, so pick up a few before you go out to get some buy one, get one free deals. Go see the stores and sights without being stuck inside all night.

Lots of fun street performers. Great for the kids or anyone. Very unique performances. Many times the crowds have lots of people from the cruise ships that are docked nearby. You'll get some great, memorable pictures.
