This isn’t a post about the obvious. This is a post about what we as Floridians must do in Key West. We all know about the bars on Duval Street. Getting your picture taken by the buoy. That’s the tourist stuff and I know I’m guilty of it too. One time we went down for the powerboat races. We quickly got bored with it, ended up in a bar on Duval Street, got drunk and then on a bench in Truman Park. I had the most amazing discussion with one of the roosters that hangs out in that area. We talked about family, tourists, hurricanes, and stuff like that. It seems like most of my Key West stories are “we got drunk and….” I mean, why was at a rented house partying with a bunch of girls on a bachelorette party? Because I brought beer. That’s the Keys that you always hear about. And let’s not forget Fantasy Fest. Fantasy Fest is legendary.
This is a list of 10 must do things compiled by Key West resident Ian Wilson. Plus one bonus. So stop acting like you’re from Ohio and go see the real Key West. The one the locals know.
