a key west christmas

aside from amazingly warm weather in december, key west also boasts lots of sights to see and things to do in a small area - most places are in walking/biking distance depending on where you stay. my favorites this trip included the key west butterfly conservatory and fort zachary beach. if you have the option to rent bikes, I highly recommend it.

best beach: pick up cuban sandwiches from courthouse and deli and head to fort zachary, the undisputed best beach in the keys (bring money for the small entry fee)

must see/do: the key west butterfly conservatory, the southernmost point for an obligatory photo, hemingway house if you're interested, key west artisan market, try a beach yoga class

eat/drink recommendations: casa marina for a key lime 'casa colada' by the beach at sunset, la te da for a yummy fish sandwich and an abundant mimosa menu, green parrot casual dive bar, grab fresh fish from fausto's or the fish market and whip up a batch of gumby slumbers (1 cup each: coconut rum, spiced rum, orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice) for a fun night in.

a must-see for sure
