I'm here in Palm Beach for vacation and staying at my sisters house for 2 weeks. We're going to Tampa for a weekend and also to Miami for a day.
I also could pick between Key West or Disney in Orlando to go for a weekend. What should I pick? And what would you pick? I never been to either of the places.

PS! It's TOO hot & humid here!!

Depends if you have kids or not. If you don`t keys if you do Disney.

And we know it`s hot we live here.

Another reason the keys might be better then Disney, nothing worse then standing in line in 90 degree heat especially if you are not used to it..

If you are 17 then Disney would be better. You would not be able to get into any of the bars in key West.

Yea but the poster is complaining about how hot it is here so Disney will be no fun for them if heat is a big issue.

I think at 17, I'd much rather do Key West. Save Orlando for going to Universal/Island of Adventure with your buddies..and contary to popular belief there is more to Key West than drinking.
Have a great time.

My vote is for the Keys. It's a great walking city, some history, some funky things like six toed cats and chickens, wild iguanas............. even though you can't drink, you'll get to enjoy all the crazy people there- people watching is a blast there.

Also, the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square is a blast.

Depends on desires: fun in amusement park and long waits to get on rides go Disney.

More relax and do what you want to do and enjoy the area go to the Keys.

My choice KEYS....http://bestsmileys.com/water/15.gif (broken link)

Default There is lots to do underage...DAYTIME

At night, though, hit the hotel pool, or just chill out with friends. You won't find much to do besides drink. HOWEVER, a lot of bars will let you in underage with an X if you have an adult guardian (sorry I didn't like that one either) escort you. I work in a bar as a security guard, and you would have to stay away from the bar except to get a soda or juice and sit with your family. Mod deleted..

Mod deleted... The Original Ghost Tours of Key West: Ghost Tour & Ghosts of Key West Book. Key West's Original & Most Popular Walking Tour. Discover Haunted Key West. Take a lantern-led stroll through historic Old Town's haunted places.[/url], the original one is better trust me. It's the one where people dress up. Bring a camera, it's a fun historical walk with stories and interaction. After that, though, it's X's or you just walking around in circles watching the drunks! NO kidding. The better thing to say is that this time of year, there are less people. Remember to take care of the service people here, we bust our butts and really do need an extra buck!

Historic walks, the guides are free and LOADED with information about all the homes, and the boats are always doing something fun. Check out the Dry Tortugas, the most remote national park in the country. Yes, there is more to do. But when the sun goes down...As Mr. Chesney says...

I hope you have a fun time whichever you choose...
