My husband and I went on our honeymoon in Key West, Fla in July of 2008. It is such a beautiful place and we had so much fun. We stayed at the Casa Marina Hotel and Resort which is the most beautiful hotel on the island. The hotel itself it enormous and just got reconstructed. The lobby is nothing but wood and is amazing. We had a very nice suite on the third floor on the corner, so that our view was of the ocean and of the pools. We had our own private beach and it was absolutely gorgeous to wake up to every morning. We got up every morning and had breakfast outside by the pool, which was delicious. They had a very nice buffet breakfast or you could order from the menu. They also had a great chef that made your eggs any way you wanted and he made the greatest omelets. After breakfast we would go to the pool and get some sun and have some drinks. The bar had drinks specials everyday where you could get two for the price of one. When we went to Duval Street which is where everything is in Key West we took a trolley tour around the island. It was ok but it was really hot and not much air was circulating at that time of day. We decided to get off the trolley and walk around. There are a lot of souvenir shops and places to shop. My favorite places to look were at the art galleries where they had some of the most beautiful art I had ever seen, from paintings to glass figurines which were made by hand.  The first place we stopped to get lunch was at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. This is where I got hooked margaritas. We ordered burgers and fries which were great, and the margaritas are to die for. After that all I drank were margaritas. That night we ended up going on a sunset cruise right from our hotel. We went out about an hour before sunset and had champagne and cocktails. This was one of my favorite moments.  We were able to do a lot of things right from the hotel. You could parasail, swim with dolphins, scuba dive, and rent scooters. We ended up renting scooters and riding all over town. They were a lot of fun.  It took us a while to get used to driving them but once we got used to them we were having a ball. The best place that we went to in Key West was Irish Kevin’s. It is a bar that has musicians and comedians. Their best comedian is a guy named NY Pauly, he is hilarious. He plays the guitar and sings Irish drinking songs. He gets the whole audience involved and we had the greatest time. He makes tries to get people to come into the bar that are walking by and teases them when they stop and stare. We went to Irish Kevin’s almost every night that we were there. You can actually check NY Pauly out on their website, at irishkevins.com. The best place to get something to eat was at the Pierhouse Hotel, they have a restaurant that has the best food in Key West. If you go I definitely recommend the grouper.  That was the first and only place I have ever tried grouper and it was the best meal I ever had.  We ate there at least five times. I have to say I cannot wait to go back.
