West Key Best Key /// Key West Photo Recap & Our Travel Plan
Hi everyone!! Sorry to have been MIA last week! (Real talk!) After I got back from my trip I just felt a little burned out and didn't feel like writing this post! But then tonight I realized I wanted to post this today, so I got to work!!
Instead of making one really, really, long post about Key West, I'm going to break it into SIX posts!

Review: Port St. Luci, Florida
Marathon, Florida: Turtle Hospital
So on the way down, we broke the SEVENTEEN AND A HALF hour drive into four days. The first night, we stayed in Enterprise, AL (someone - me - thought it would be fun to visit the Enterprise car place in Enterprise, Alabama), and got there at about 10 pm, and left at 8 o'clock the next day. On Saturday, we got up early, left by eight, and then drove through Tallahassee, Gainesville, and Orlando before finally stopping in Port St. Lucie for the night. Thats where we had one of the best meals I've ever had in my life, but more on that in a future post! Sunday, we made the pretty short trip from Port St. Lucie to Marathon, and made it there in time for lunch! Thats where we visited the Turtle Hospital! Then on Monday we drove the rest of the way to Key West!
We had lunch at the Cracked Conch and it was so good!! The staff was so friendly and as a Cubs fan, I loved the Wrigley Field sign! I'll talk about them again when I post about eating my way through Key West! This is also the day we visited the Turtle Hospital!
I really enjoyed Key West, but I definitely think it is a busier, more fast paced, vibe than some of the other keys. As a
millenial young adult in my twenties, It was also fun to explore Duval Street and the downtown/bar scene of the city.
New favorite coffee spot. Yall. SO GOOD! And its necessary for photo-ops.
I'm going to share more on this gorgeous park later - but for now I wanted to share just a few of the pictures that I liked from the island and from the ferry there!
Thats it for now! Check back later this week for my list of must sees/must do's in Key West!!
