The Florida Keys, in particular, Key West was such a highlight for us. It has such a cruisy vibe which we really enjoyed. We wished we could have stayed longer but unfortunately we only went for a day trip.
We didn’t have much planned before we went, with the intention of walking around and just seeing what we could find. We stopped for a drink at a couple of locations which, again, was really chill. Something interesting about Key West is that you can drink in public, which meant that we could get our drinks decanted into a plastic cup and walk around the streets!
Key West (and most of Florida) doesn’t have a very rich history – in our opinion. It took a long time before people starting living there due to how wet/flat it is, which meant that it was difficult for people to build and settle here. Florida isn’t a true representation of the “true south” of the USA so we’ve found, and been told. Key West is, however, home of the southern most point of the USA – which we checked out and took some snaps of.
We spent a while checking out the stores and interesting people down Duval street – which is the main strip. It seems like the main population is retired/older Americans.
I made a video on our day which you can check out here if you’d like.
