My Key West Trip

by in My Key West

My first trip to Key West was in November 2017. A group of 13 friends traveled to the little island for the National Offshore Boat Races.  All of us have families and decided this trip would be adults only.  This will be a very interesting since this group had been busy with small children. I will have multiple posts on this trip, but here I’ll give you an overview.

My wife, a friend, and I traveled the Sunday before the races to enjoy the calm before the storm.  Most of our group planned to arrive on Wednesday. I am so glad we did this. This way we could do some of the bucket list items we wanted to do. We flew into Fort Lauderdale and took a puddle jumper into Key West. It was an amazing flight, especially since I am working on my pilot’s license and have flown into Key West on my flight simulator many times.

After we landed we headed to our condo in Stock Island.  It’s a three bedroom, two floor townhouse locales in Coral Hammock area. Great place and we had a great view of the pool. The CVS next door was perfect for getting items we needed.

The first few days we hit the major tourist locations. Once our group arrived there were more restaurants and bar hopping along with a lot of shenanigans.

The end of the week was dedicated to the boat races and more shenanigans.

The trip back home was interesting. We are supposed to fly out of Key West, but due to flight scheduling issues, we ended up driving to Fort Lauderdale with a rental car. This was a great unplanned travel that I am glad it happened.
