We spent a number of days exploring the Keys, especially Bahai Hondo and Key West. Bahai Hondo was a beautifful state park. It has one of the few nice beaches in the keys. We watched the Brown Pelicans diving for fish and noticed a lot of Portuguese Man-Of-Wars washed up on the shore. We were a little disappointed in Key West Town. We expected more of a laid back, Carribean island atmosphere and instead felt like it was just like all of the other cheesy beach towns along the atlantic coast. There were some interesting historical sites and some old houses. There was also a bar that offered a "clothing optional" rooftop lounge, but the place was basically full of cruise ship tourists visiting t-shirt shops.
