Places that are Impressive

A big difference between the islands, and the regular parts of Florida is the amount of restaurants that have Patio Dining. We found a bunch of good ones like Caroline's Cafe. No longer will we except to be escorted to a table within the walls of any restaurant. Not in this city, with fantastic places like Caroline's Cafe that mix food and outdoor views so well. I thought the breakfast was outstanding over at the Six-Toed Cafe. Yummy places that you would not think of here in Key West. This is a winner and the food is Prime Time. When you're ready for some beer and you like to have a good view at the same time go with the Bull and Whistle. What a Duval Street landmark that has its great share of the best parties of Key West. Easy to find at the corner of caroline and Duval, people love this places for the open air views, pool table, and top side Garden Club.

Vacation Ideas

We are so much looking forward to coming to the craft beer festival in Marathon again this year. We get into any of the beer, wine or bubbly drinking games and will come down here any time that's available. There's something special about Marathon Community Park and how they take advantage of it for the holiday season with lots of live entertainment. I love the fact that they events they have their are free and you don't have to pay an admission charge to join in the fun, you just pay for any food or beer that you buy.

December is great down here in the Florida Keys so you can have your cookies with santa claus at the Crane Point park. We love singing Christmas carols from a boat in the Christmas Parade. I see that cabana breezes is having a big disco bash this year for new year's eve starting at eight pm that looks fantastic. I realize they have set a date for the Florida Keys day this year supposed to be March thirty one and that's something that they figured out and set up there in Tallahassee so it is official. A visit down here will have you want to relocate to the area, trust me! Only thing about the Florida Keys is they do not have a target store target.com every five miles like they do here in South Miami.
