Are you going stir crazy because of COVID19? Here is How to Spend a Girl’s Getaway Weekend in the Florida Keys, to give you something to look forward to once you are able to travel again! I happen to love Key West, everyone knows that it is my favorite vacation destination aside from Barcelona – and let’s get real, shall we? I can drive to Key West in under 4 hours, whereas Barcelona takes A LOT more planning.
So of course I go there as often as possible. I was just in Key West in early September, once things began opening back up and I felt safe with the covid rates in the Florida Keys.
How to Spend a Girl’s Getaway Weekend in the Florida Keys
We are now about 8 months into the COVID19 pandemic, with much of that time being spent in almost total isolation due to a very strict quarantine in Miami. I have watched friends and family having so much fun and living their normal lives for months now because their cities handled COVID19 well, and didn’t have a huge outbreak like we did – and I am incredibly jealous!
A place where no one rushes, no one cares, and you can waste away the day sipping mojitos, eating Key Lime pie and relaxing in a sun-drenched paradise? Nowhere, folks. Nowhere else that I have ever been has quite the same feel to it as Key West.
As soon as I cross the Seven Mile Bridge, I immediately feel relaxed and at peace…and so happy!
Book a Sunset Sail in Advance
Key West is one of those tropical paradise destinations that feels a little like home, but it’s also a totally different world! Relaxation, the ocean, a Caribbean vibe, a party scene, a foodie scene, and of course, fun in the sun – what’s not to love about Key West?
One of the iconic Key West activities is watching the sunset, which you can do at the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square every evening.
While there are a million amazingly fun things to do in Key West, my favorite by far is a sunset sail – a Champagne or Wine sunset sail, to be precise! Depending on which sunset sail tour you book, you can receive champagne, sangria, or beer and soda, along with snacks and that is included in the price. That’s definitely not something you get while watching the sunset from Mallory Square.
There are party boats and smaller, more intimate tours, maxing out at 20 people. I have done them all and it really depends on what mood you are in when you are vacationing. A large, rowdy fun bunch and a band on deck? Do a big Sebago sunset sail. Or if you want a small, intimate gathering, do something like Danger Charters – which is my very favorite tour for both daytime and the sunset sails.
I literally do a sunset sail every single time I go to Key West. It’s one of my favorite activities to do while I am on the island! Check out the boat tours through TripAdvisor to learn more!
Visit the Famous Key West Landmarks
I’ve had the luxury of spending time at some truly amazing resorts and bed and breakfasts in Key West.
I honestly can’t think of a single property that I disliked!
Many hotel pools offer cabanas, poolside bars, restaurants etc – it’s all right there for you when you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street.
