We walked the historic district a few times. Lots of great restaurants and little shopping areas as well. Look at all the boats sitting in the gorgeous turquoise water. Don't forget to look down and see the fish!

Great Place to just wander around and look at the gorgeous sunsets. In the evening there are buskers and vendors selling handmade crafts and different trinkets along the pier. Lots of nice shops closer to the street. A must see!

most scenic restaurants are here. I always include a seafood stop along this walk each time I'm in town.

The Historic Seaport, with its mix of commerce, luxury crafts and historic vessels is a glimpse into yet another part of the fabric of Key West. It provides the opportunity to view an watch as the broad spectrum of Key West natives and visitors go about their activities.

We just kept going back to this area....great restaurants and views of the marina with choices of various water sports right there. This to us is the true feel of going to the Keys should be like.

We walked around the seaport, it was interesting to see all the boats. There were many restaurants to choose from along the dock. It is a good thing to do on a sunny day.

If you enjoy marine life, if only as an observer, this is a great nautical route for pedestrians and is wheelchair easy. Whether alone or with others, viewing 'the boat show' honors 'the lifestyle of the rich and famous.' Beautiful craft, both private and for rent. If you tire of admiring from a distance, many options for hire exist for... More

This is what Key West is all about - the sea, the boats, the food, the people. You need to visit here at least once when you are in Key West, walk along the wharf, stop and have a drink at one of the many bars or restaurants along the port. There are many opportunities for people watching and lots... More
