The Keys

I'm looking for a few inmates in or around Key West. We are planning a 2nd trip to Key West, and need some pointers, and general direction.

Best get your place to stay booked in advance.

Key West is actually tiny. Can walk to the tourist spots. If you like fishing check out some of the northern keys.

If you plan on crashin out in your van you can check out Big Pine Key Fish Camp. It's about 35 miles from Key West but the prices are fair and the place is nice with sites on the water. They have a rec room and heated pool with very nice bath houses.

Seriously, though...we really liked Key West. Chocolate covered frozen key lime pie on a stick was memorable.

There are a number of places to stay along the keys, and bed and breakfasts are abundant on Key West itself. You may want to look at a few websites that have the major events calender for the year. You might find things you want to see, or crowds to avoid. Here is one:

I see a Brew fest that looks fun in August 2013, and there seem to be lots of fishing tourneys that might draw crowds (and fill accomodations).

Just got back a few weeks ago from Fantasy Fest, Key West is a great relaxing time. Lot's of bikes too, even though its flat and boring it could still be a nice ride.

+1 on Big Pine Key Fish Camp. Nice clean place, friendly people running the operation, reasonable prices (for the Keys), free wifi, and all the coffee you can drink every morning.

May also get you a bum urinating on your tent depending on where you decide to pitch your tent.

Yes it is but KW had a lot of issues with crime and the powers that be wanted to crack down and enforce the law...
