Default Key West recommendations

The wife and I are thinking of Key West for a 30th anniversary getaway in late April. Any lodging recommendations/restaurants and must see places?

Spent ten days at Ocean Key, nice place. Not sure if the Almond Tree is still there but that was cheaper and free happy hour (drank them out of beer every night!). Ricky's Blue Heaven for diner - loved the Key West lemonade!

I enjoy walking Duval Street with the wife. I also like the beach at Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park.

There is a nice boat ramp in town, that is a common thread, where are decent boat ramps in the Keys.

We enjoy walking in the downtown area looking at boats.

Mallory Square has an interesting Sunset and Sunset Celebration.

If you put on a mask and Snorkel at Ft. Zachary the view in the water is pretty, nice fish and coral.

We rented this house for our 30th a couple years ago. One door off Duvall on a dead end street but far enough down to be very peaceful. Very private, small pool, and actually has a parking place.

And one of the few places in Key West were if you say the word "ferry" people will assume that you are referring to a specific type of watercraft and not get all offended.

If you are no worried about the budget I would highly recommend the Marquesa Hotel. My wife and I stayed there two years ago for our 35th and while we don't normally that kind of coin it was well worth

Just make sure that any small hostelry the you choose in Key West isn't "clothing optional"

Unless things have changed drastically in the last few years, Casa Marina is never a bad option. Same with the Curry Mansion. The Reach is now a Waldorf-Astoria branded property like the Casa Marina
