Key West Reviews
Key West is a great little town, away from the bustle of a city life - if your looking for quality time with family and have a passion for the outdoors and ocean it could be a great place to raise a family. Key West has its night life on Duval with plenty of restaurants and bars but if your local you learn that there is much more to the Florida Keys including Key West past the tourism. The community is very close organizing events and fundraisers to provide opportunities for sports and further opportunities for students and families in town. I am a behavioral health counselor and travel to each and every school within the county. The schools utilize many forms of technology and really make an effort to provide further opportunities for mental health and fitness beyond academics daily.
Key west is definitely not family friendly and more for partying. All though it is really pretty coming here with family is not the best idea. All restaurants have the same thing and not much verity with food. A lot of the stores have inappropriate messages and not for children to see. Coming here with friends is a better idea then bringing family. This is a lot of fun dancing around and partying with friends. The nightlife is thriving all night when you come. The hotels and resorts that I have been to are nice quality. They are definitely relaxing. If you want to come here for a full on resort with many places to go here might not be the best. I stayed at Ocean Edge and there were only pools. The rooms are very nice though. I hope this review helped you!
Small city living surrounded by one of the nation's greatest resources: the world's third largest living reef. Lots of history, art, maritime culture. In the middle of reimagining the pulse of the community & turning more towards sustainable tourism & locals as priority.
