As night falls, head over to Latitudes on Sunset Key for a delectable dinner. This boat-access-only restaurant offers exquisite food paired with breathtaking sunset views. Reservations are required to catch a a ferry ride to the island. After dinner, make your way to the bustling Old Town's Duval Street and dive into the nightlife of Key West at one of the many bars. Green Parrot and Sloppy Joe's, Ernest Hemingway's favorited spot during his time on the island, are two staples of the local scene.
Finally, retreat to Marrero's. Take a moonlit dip at the pool that is open 24 hours a day, before sinking into your plush pillow-top hybrid mattress, connect your favorite tunes to the Tivoli Bluetooth stereo speakers, and drift off to sleep dreaming of another perfect day in Key West.
