I got a chuckle out of reading the title of this thread. My son was in 6th grade (private school in FL), and his class went to Key West for a class trip. They spent the whole day at various museums, and stayed for the sunset. He still talks about it 6 years later, so SOMETHING about Key West left an impression.

Key West is a lot of fun, but, I don't know if I would plan more than a day there with Children... I think it would be a bit boring for them. I've been a few times, on cruises, and I was bored by the end of the day.

Default Where do you stay?

I would bring older kids there, there really isn't anything for the smaller children to do but swim in the Hotel pools. KW has only man made beaches. The first week of Sept. is usually Woman's Fest, where the gay women from all over the world come to KW.

Hi,
Just wondering where you stay when in Key West.

Thanks,
Telise

Andrew's Inn in Key West is awesome. They have two houses, both in a great location close to all the action. As for the original poster asking about children, I too would not categorize Key West as a "family with children" destination. But for an adult couple, it was awesome. Would go back in a heartbeat...but VERY hot in the summers, beware!

If I had children with me there I'd take them out to Fort Jefferson National Park, nice day trip. I camped there myself.

You are responding to a thread that has been inactive for four years. I would send her or him a DM, doubtful otherwise you will get an answer.

There are some great things to do down in Key West for the kids. Ripleys Museaum, Butterfly conservatory, Aquarium, snorkeling are just a few of the great things! We took the Key West Express too so it was a much shorter trip down for the kids to sit through and they had a great time on the boat!

I am sorry Telise I just saw your post. The Inn that I am referring to is called Suite Dreams, located on Von Phister St., down passed the Casa Marina. The room used to be called the Super Suite, but the Inn was sold so I don't know what they call that room now. It is the only one with your own private pool. kelsie
