Sequins and Sea Breezes: Flashback Friday - Key West!

Flashback Friday - Key West!


{Good morning Key West!!}

{Enjoying our 4th of July adult beverages the bartender whipped up for us}

{We decided it'd be a fun idea to run into the water with all of our clothes on. Too bad our shorts never dried the entire time we were there because it was so humid}

{We tried to have a patriotic bathing suit theme but neither one of us had a red bikini!}

{Out celebrating the 4th of July... in a tree}

{Out at South Beach bright an early because (as you can tell) the storms were rolling in early that day}

{We decided to explore Key West when it got cloudy and rainy and ended up at Mile Marker 0}

{We found Jack Sparrow at Sloppy Joe's!}

{Our hotel was amazing. They had free wine happy hour every night from 4-6 pm (usually we drank them out of their wine supply before then though) and it was in the perfect location on Duval St}

{You have to go to the Southernmost Point before you leave! Oh, and get Key Lime Pie!}

It's Flashback Friday, and the Friday before a 3-day weekend (for me)!! In honor of my bestie's birthday celebration tonight and the fact that we booked our annual Key West trip this week I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to our 4th of July Key West trip last year.  Excuse the picture quality since most of these were taken with my iPhone, since I wasn't blogging yet I didn't bother to bring my DSLR camera to get nice pictures.

We decided to do a group trip to Key West rather spur of the moment last year but since it's only an 8 hour drive we figured why not? We ended up getting a great last minute(ish) deal on a cute little bed and breakfast at the end of Duval Street right across from South Beach called the Southernmost Point Guest House. We drove down EARLY 4th of July morning, ran into a bit of traffic troubles in Key Largo where they had closed the road for a parade but got to Key West with plenty of time to celebrate. To start our weekend off we went to Southernmost Beach Cafe for a few drinks while the rain was moving out then went back to our hotel (after running into the ocean with all of our clothes on!) to get changed to go to dinner and out for the 4th. The next day we attempted to go to the beach but the rain moved in early so we ended up just wandering around Key West, shopping and  grabbing drinks at random local bars. Our hotel had an amazing little set up with grills and hammocks that guests can use so we ended up grilling out and relaxing in the hammocks the rest of the day until we decided to go out and check out the night life (again). For our final full day in Key West we decided it would best be spent at the beach so we rented some chaise lounges and got some Bloody Mary's and margaritas and just let the relaxing vibe of Key West take us away. 

I honestly could have written a book on all the places we went, bars and restaurants we explored and how amazing our stay was (especially how great our hotel and their staff were) but I'm sure you're already looking to book your trip to Key West yourself and plan your own adventures so I won't keep you ;) It was such a great, quick getaway; I'd recommend Key West to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation but with plenty to do so you never get bored. I can't wait until July 4th weekend so we can go back and this time I'll bring my DSLR and document our adventures to share with you in higher quality. If you're looking for advice on places to go in KW feel free to ask!
