Gonna try to get #weddingwednesdays going here! Starting with my BEACHelorette party in Key West. Because it was the best time, ever. I hadn't been down to Key West as an adult and forgot just how amazing it is. It's a super authentic island where everything revolves around the sunshine + there's no open container policy. So yes, I'd like a piña colada to go.
We stayed at Sunset Key Cottages which are the most beautiful houses on a private island off of Key West, they have a ferry that runs back and forth all day for guests. It's only a 5 minute boat ride to Key West and then you're right in the middle of it all near Duval Street. I wish I'd saved the Snapchats from the house because they're so pretty. If you're going to Key West with a group, def check it out. Full run down below.
Friday: Arrive in Key West, unpack, get locked in the room while they decorated the house - and OMG what a GREAT job my sister aka (mer)maid of honor did. I mean look at those photos! It was pouring rain when we arrived so we head to the bar at the hotel for a drink hoping the rain would let up. It did! And off to Irish Kevin's we went! Seriously my favorite bar, the live music so good.
Saturday we biked Key West stopping at all the beaches and stopping mudslides along the way because hello, no open container policy! Then lunch outside at Fogarty's (because their frozen drinks are to die for) and back to Sunset Key for an afternoon at the pool before dinner. For dinner we went to Hot Tin Roof and I had the freshest ahi tuna I've ever had. We were exhausted from our day so we went back to the hotel to hang out and have drinks at the pool before calling it a night.
Sunday we packed up, spent a few last hours at the pool then begrudgingly headed back to reality.
If you're considering Key West for your bachelorette, stop considering it and book it! We all had the best time and regularly ask when we can go again. It just may become an annual trip.
