Things to do in Key West!

Yes - we are back in Key West for a few weeks.  I love this place!  Why?-you ask…

Because of there is so much to do and see.  And because of the:

  • Weather - even though it has rained 4 or 5 days in the last week, it is warm and we have had our share of sun!            
Right now it is sunny and 81 degrees.
  • Sunsets - this is the view from our campsite

  • Habitat for Humanity - we hooked up the group again this year and joined them in a 'Brush With Kindness' effort in old town.  We stained floorboards for the wrap around porch.

  • Sloppy Joe's - popular tavern frequented by the regular and the famous, including Ernest Hemingway in the 1930's

  • Capt Tony's Saloon - where Sloppy Joe's was until they moved down the street.

  • The Audubon House was a real surprise.  Very interesting display of his 'Birds of the Florida Keys'.  My favorite is the Roseate Spoonbill.

  • The closest flea market is down in Big Pine Key, about 30 miles from KW.

  • We love the Old Town Trolley Tour - it goes around the entire island and tickets are good for two days.  While we were waiting to catch it, we struck up a conversation with Andy, who just happens to be VP of Marketing and Sales.  And he extended our tickets for a week!

On that happy note, I think we will wrap it up for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Thank you so much for joining us.  

As always, comments are always welcome!  Until next time...


  1. Excellent! The Keys are on our list for this coming year...thanks for the tour.

  2. if we would be interested in hooking up with the habitat group for next fall in key west - who do we contact?

    1. Anna Symington - the volunteer coordinator. Try to give here a call and inidicate your interest. You may need to leave a voicemail.

      Also, I'd suggest you go to the HFH web site first:

      ead all about it and sign up for the email, newsletter. It usually comes with a note on where the work is going to be next.

      Hope that helps!

  3. Love the post and the pics. The keys are have alaways been one of my favorite places and I love the laid-back attitude.

  4. I love the Old Town Trolly and we have used it in the past, but we didn't have the connections for an extension. You did good on that one. This year we will use the public bus more, it makes loops past the base. We will be in the Fly Navy building Dec 18 until Dec 27. Perhaps we will see you in town.
