As others have said...Mallory Square sunset for all, Trolley tour was GREAT, we did a glass bottom boat ride that would be a good date thing, BO's Fish Wagon for sure, we liked the beach at the naval station. Blue Heaven was expensive but fun for breakfast. And get Key Lime cookies at Kermits! And can I please go along? I'm fun!!!

We're staying at Bluewater Key (about 15 miles north of Key West). So we'll be driving the truck in (doesn't bother me- I've done plenty of touristy/busy beach towns in the dually ). As for biking- we always wear helmets.

And now- my wife's aunt mentioned some kind of nude bar in Key West?!

Great suggestions, all. The stops on the way down and back up... how big rig friendly are their parking areas? We're staying in Miami a couple of nights before we drive down and I took the day off of work, so we should have a nice leisurely drive to get there. The RV park has a "no arrivals after 5pm" rule, so I have to watch the clock a bit.

Forgot to mention the glass bottom boats. Think the 11 year old would like it but the 2 year old will get very squirmy. Lol

Two years ago we really enjoyed the Hemingway house and the Truman "white house". As stated by others not too much of interest for the kids.

That's one of the very nice things about having the in-laws around. My MIL gets horribly motion sick and very easily. We'll have a built-in sitter.

It's going to be a good time- it'll be my family of 4 and my in-laws staying in the camper. Then my MIL's mother and aunt are staying at a hotel in Key West.

Just got back from camping @ Cudjoe Key, spending 2 days in Key West. First was the trolley & Hemingway House, Mallory Square & the 2 microbreweries & rum distillery. Second was all the galleries of Duval street & comparing who made the best bloody Mary. There is a clothing optional place on the top floor of one of the corner bars on Duval ...entrance was on a side street (took DH picture next to the entrance but I did not get the street sign in it) called the garden of Eden - no idea what it is like. Would highly recommend The Square Grouper on Cudjoe for lunch with the family or date night without kids

Dry Tortugas on the CAT was awesome. But, it's about a 2 hr. Boat ride. The little ones may not enjoy it.

Dry Tortugas is in the plan. My wife and in-laws are opting out. My wife's Grandma is a huge history buff and her aunt is going to do it. I'm positive that my daughter will enjoy it - plus, it's on her National Parks Passport book, so she'll get the stamp. I'm on the fence about going or not. I have to finagle time off of work for it. I really want to, but...
