If you are like most of us, you’ve had to make some adjustments to your travel plans with everything that’s been going on over the past couple of months. With that said, I think we can all agree that we’re in serious need of some sun, sand, and serenity…it sounds like time for a road trip!
Well, it’s your lucky day, because we have the perfect solution: Take a day trip to the Key West Historic Seaport! Read on for our recommendations on where to eat, drink, shop, and play to make this day trip to Key West the best one yet.
The Drive >> Overseas Highway
You can reach Key West in about 3 ½ hours from Miami by driving along the beautiful US-1 Overseas Highway. On your way, you’ll pass by the Seven-Mile Bridge, known as the Eighth Wonder of the World. The original bridge runs alongside the current vehicle bridge and is open to pedestrians and cyclists. In order to get out and take in the gorgeous views, you can stop at the Little Duck Key public boat ramp and park your car just on the right-hand side of the road.
The Food >> Conch Republic Seafood Company
Enjoy fresh dock-to-dish dining, entertainment, and even some Key West history at Conch Republic Seafood Company. A Key West treasure, Conch Republic Seafood Company has a rich tradition of bringing the delicacies of the seas right to your plates with sponges, giant sea turtles, shrimp, fish, and so much more. We can’t forget to mention their daily Happy Hour: 2-for-1 on all beer, premium well drinks, and house wines from 4:00-7:00 P.M.
Conch Republic Seafood Company is open for business with full hours of operation – you can see for yourself on the live webcam!
The Shopping >> Hammerhead Surf Shop
No day trip would be complete without some shopping, and we have just the place for you. Hammerhead Surf Shop is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to look at your A-game this summer – surfwear, sunglasses, swimsuits, hats, and don’t forget your sunblock!
The Water >> Sunset Watersports
Looking to make a splash while you’re here? Join the crew of Sunset Watersports for a beautiful afternoon sail out to the reef with a refreshing afternoon dip in the crystal clear waters. If you’re looking for some extra excitement, you can start at the dolphin playground and watch the majestic dolphins jump and play right next to the boat, followed by a snorkeling adventure.
