Tagged: , , , ,

Everyone knows about the bars on Duval in Key West but did you know there’s an actual beach bar in town? Lagerheads Beach Bar is located at the north end of Simonton Street and yes, it’s really on a beach. Sporting a laid back island atmosphere in stark contrast to its neighbors on Duval, Lagerheads is known for its fish tacos. As the owners mention in the above video, however, they have a Cuban sandwich (“the...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Islamorada Fish Company, Florida Keys

Tagged: , , , ,

This image of sunset at the Islamorada Fish Company in the Florida Keys was the runaway favorite for our “beach pic of the day” posts on the Facebook page. In fact, it was one of the most popular images I’ve ever shared. It still doesn’t make me feel any better about somehow missing this spot on my couple road trips through the Keys but it does give me a really good excuse to go back.

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “Any recommendations on bars I should visit during my Florida Keys road trip?” It speaks not only to the popularity of the Florida Keys as a destination but the visceral reaction one experiences when cruising through America’s Caribbean. It’s an atmosphere not easily replicated anywhere else on the continent and a major reason people just can’t get enough of this region. Road trips beget pit...

Missing The Florida Keys

Tagged: , , , , , , , ,

I’m really missing the Florida Keys. After being in St. Pete Beach for 11 days, I was reminded of just how much I miss being on the water. Salty or fresh, it has this way of calming me while at the same time getting me excited about just how big the world is and all the new places out there to explore. And when you’re in the Florida Keys, you can’t deny the ocean – it’s everywhere you turn and if you don’t see it, you’ll smell the...

One of the most unique beach bars in the Florida Keys is Rum Runners in Islamorada. Located at the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle, the multi-level bar with multiple perches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean has been a longtime favorite of locals and visitors alike, even taking a prominent role in the Zac Brown Band’s hit single, “Jump Right In.” The status of Rum Runners, though, has been brought into question as various sites and comments...

30 Seconds at the Sunset Grille, Florida Keys

Tagged: , , , , , ,

The Sunset Grille and Raw Bar is a beach bar located at the east end of Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon in the Florida Keys. During our road trip through the Keys last fall, we had the opportunity to stop by for a few drinks on our way home. Unfortunately, it wasn’t at sunset and no one in our party felt any particular need to wait countless hours for the sun to pull its disappearing act. I can’t blame them – long hours on the road and...
