Photo Essay: Florida Keys part 2 – Bridges, Boats, and Bars

Bridges, boats, and bars are perhaps my favorite parts of the Florida Keys. When you’re sitting on a little slice of land surrounded by the turquoise shades of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, you can’t help but become addicted to the water, boats, and bridges that go along with it. The bars are just an added bonus.

Only in Key West. I enjoy walking the docks and noting the neat names of boats.

Located at Conch Harbor Marina, Dante’s is a fun and relaxing spot to have lunch, sip a cocktail, and take a dip in the pool.

Sunset Grille & Raw Bar, located on Marathon Key, has great food and a pool. It’s right beside Seven Mile Bridge, and it’s an excellent choice for the sunset scene.

You can't go to Key West without visiting Capt. Tony's Saloon. Well, I guess you could, but how boring would that be?

The famous Sloppy Joe’s Bar. They actually have really good sloppy joes.

 

Jet ski tour

Okay, not exactly a boat, but jet skis are pretty darn fun in the Keys. We took a tour around the island with Fury Watersports. I highly recommend.
