The second stop on our Keys vacation was Key West! You can’t go to the Key’s and not see Key West! Key West is definitely different, but it’s so much fun and something you have to experience. 


During our time in Key West, we stayed at The Southernmost Beach Resort. This resort is a block from the Southernmost point of the continental USA. Jon and I made sure to be proper tourists and take photo with the Southernmost point sign! 

The Southernmost Beach Resort was beautiful! It is a huge property with three pools, two beaches, a tanning pier, and hammocks everywhere. You truly feel like you are in a tropical paradise. 

I love sitting by the pool or ocean and tanning, but you can only do that for so long. Jon and I love when resorts offer activities or have cool amenities. Southernmost had awesome bikes that you could rent for the day so we used those to explore the town of Key West! Right when we rented the bikes, it started down pouring, but honestly, the feels like temp was close to 100 so we really didn’t mind! We rode by the Naval base, by Ernest Hemingway’s home and up the top of Duval Street. When the rain really started coming down hard, we headed into Hogs Breath Saloon to listen to the live music and get lunch. We ended up having to stay there for a good 2 hours due to how hard the rain was coming down!

Overall, we had SO much fun in Key West. We loved Southernmost for so many reasons but I’d say the top things were: location, size of resort and amount of things to do! If you are planning a trip to Key West, I highly suggest staying at Southernmost!
