Summertime and the livin's Keys-y...all about life as a Key West Local

I've spent the last couple of months becoming a full-time Key West local again after living in Nashville, TN for a bit, and let me tell ya - there is such a thing as being on island time. When you get to Key West, things move a little slower and you get to embrace your island chill. From quaint eateries, bright island blooms, quiet harbors, and glowing sunsets, there is SO much to love about this small island town.

Key West is just under 8 square miles - about 2x4 - and split mostly into New Town, Mid Town, and Old Town - with unique pocket neighborhoods like The Meadows & Bahama Village. Each neighborhood has unique homes, and you find your favorite nightly walking paths, easy strolls to your favorite restaurants, bars, and beaches.

The cherry on top is the crystal clear blue waters that surround the island - whether you are in the turquoise waters of the sand bars, or the deep blues beyond where there is epic diving. Perfect boating on warm water smooth as glass, the year round tropical weather with cool ocean breezes, and the laidback lifestyle make this one of my favorite places I've lived.

Featured Restaurants: Lagerheads Beach Bar, Smokin' Tuna Saloon, Moondog Cafe, La Te Da, and Boondocks

Current Must See's: Southernmost Point, Boca Grande Key, Woman Key, Higgs Beach, Sambo Reef, Duval Street and Pocket Park, Coffee Butler Amphitheater, Truman Waterfront Park, Key West Historic Seaport, and driving the Overseas Highway (US-1)
