Adventures in Key West

We recently traveled to Key West, Fl to celebrate the marriage of two wonderful friends! As someone stated, "Key West is like spring break for adults!" It was a fun time spent with great friends.

Me: How do people get up there?
Husband: Those aren't real people...
Lodging:
We stayed at The Pier House on Duval St. and loved it. It had lush trees and foliage, a private beach, and comfortable rooms. This place definitely embodied the island spirit!

Eats:

Blue Heaven - Grilled Lobster with Angel Hair Pasta
It is a fun outdoor restaurant with good food. The only thing I didn't like about my dinner was the corn bread, it was too dry for my liking. The lobster and pasta were great!


Better Than Sex - Dessert Restaurant
We stopped by for takeout on our last night in Key West. It's a fun concept with some nice desserts, but I may have had too high of expectations. I've definitely had better desserts. Worth stopping by if you have time though!


Key Lime Pie (One of the best I had on the trip)
Tuna, Crab, and Avocado Stack
We also had a delicious conch ceviche, conch spring rolls (not my favorite), and fantastic mango coconut coladas. I think this place was one of my favorite spots in Key West. We didn't order any entrees, but all of our choices were great.

Louie's Backyard - Salmon Tartare Appetizer
It was pretty good, but my dinner was a tad salty for me. We had a late dinner, but the view from the deck would be amazing during the day or at sunset!

Sarabeth's - Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
Cute restaurant, friendly staff, and great brunch!

Key West Wedding:




Beautiful wedding on a fun catamaran that sailed into the sunset! It was one of the most relaxed and fun weddings I've been to. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Rooster:
If you haven't been to Key West, you may not know that the roosters roam freely around town. They didn't cause any disturbance to us and we really didn't hear them at our resort. Just remember not to bother them, because you can get fined for that!

I agree, the corn bread was dry. Plus, I prefer sweet corn bread.
