Things to do in Key West
1. Go to the beach. We have a few. We just don't have a lot of sand or waves. But we have so much sun you don't mind laying on the rocks cause you can get a great suntan. Better yet, hangout at your guesthouse (or hotel) pool.
2. Go to Duval Street and walk up and down the longest street in America--it stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. (That's about one mile in Key West.)
3. Go out to eat. We have some great restaurant like the Cafe Marquesa, Antonia's, and 915.
You can get a lot of reasonably priced and very good food at places like Caroline's (it's in the 300 block of Duval--try the cheeseburger) or TGI Fridays (in the Winn Dixie Shopping Center).
4. Go to Tropic Cinema (400 block of Eaton, just west of Duval) or the Regal Cinema (the Searstown shopping center).
5. Ride a bike and take a self-tour of the island. Obey the stop signs and don't aggravate locals by doing dumb things.
6. Visit the Key West Cemetery. Pics included to the right. One of the best streets in all of Key West is Carey Lane. There are 3 sweet little cottages that have been renovated. There are no Conch Trains or tour buses, no motorcycles or bicycle tours, heck, even a lot of locals don't know where the lane is located. But it is just steps away from the Key West cemetery. Take a left, walk a half a block and you are at the corner of Margaret and Southard. Three block to the north is the Key West Seaport and three blocks west is Duval. So close and so far.
7. Call Gary Thomas and buy a house. 1-877-778-7092.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
