TRAVEL WITH JRC
We just got back from our annual trip to the keys and it was a refreshing as usual. Here we have put together a list of things to do while you are in the keys.
First up, fly into Key West and walk straight off the plane and go to Duval Street! One of our favorite local places is Willie T's. They always have live music and great drinks. You can walk up and down Duval to hit all the bars or venture off to the side streets for a quiet stroll through brightly painted homes. Extra points if you catch one of the famous roaming chickens!
When in Marathon, enjoy all of the amazing beaches! The crystal clear water and white sand are perfect for relaxing, snorkeling or even fishing! All of the properties we have every stayed at have had their own private beach front, which is definitely something we recommend so that you can go out anytime you want!
Take a snorkeling trip to Sombrero Reef. You will see an old light house with all kinds of coral and tropical fish under it! It is a fun trip, and not to hard. Also it is always busy!
While you're out enjoy a boat ride around the clear waters and relax! The tropical scenery is beautiful and we miss it all the time.
Last but not least enjoy some time out to eat! We like Marathon Bagel Co. for a quick breakfast and iced coffee. For our big night out with the family we always enjoy Florida Keys Steak and Lobster which has a huge menu with something to please everyone! Island Fish House is a go to spot for lunch. They have an open air restaurant connected to docks. You can watch the boats roll in and out and feed fish! They have great food and we love their Conch Fritters.
Marathon is a family destination for us and never disappoints. It is always a great break to relax and re charge.
