    So its been a couple of years since i last saw my folks, so I decided to fly them down from NY ! They want to spend a few days in Key West and honestly Ive never been yet. Can you guys recommend or give some insight into some places to stay (resort or hotel) maybe some things to do ? We'll probably end up down there for 3 days and then coming back up into the Miami area for the rest of their stay.

    I suggest you go on the conch tour train,that way you can see the whole Island and plan you're stay.Also Fort Jefferson is real cool to go to.There is a place across from Dirty Harry's i forget the name but you can get some great Daiquiri's There and sit on the patio on Duval St,It's the best place to people watch and you'll see some real winners. Have fun down there.

    There's not tons going on there outside of the Duval Street bar scene. Does Kelly McGillis still own her restaurant down there? Fun place. Also, the original Audubon Society garden is there as I recall.

    Try the Southern Most Hotel, it's at the far end of Duvall ( beach behind it ), I stay there all the time,
    and they just completed a new wing to it with beach views.

    ...and get some fresh hand rolled cigars at the Pirates Alley Cigar Factory.

    They do several variations on "Hemingway's Favorite"...and have a cool Sampler Box with some of everything!
