    I am going to Key West for a week! I have only been there once for a day trip and I loved it..(of course Hemingway's house of cats was awesome!).but I was wondering if anyone has been there...and if so...any suggestions on where to go what to see..etc...

    I'm thinking scuba diving would be fun?

    whoops! I think i posted in the wrong place..

    Audubon's house is also there, and you had better like chickens. Apparently there's a Magaritaville there, too.

    That's Autobahn... in Germany.

    I haven't been to Key West in more than 30 years. Rode out there on the old 7-mile bridge; snorkeled all over the area, and of course visited the Hemingway house.

    Audubon as in John James.
    Early American Naturalist known for his bird paintings. The Elephant Folio is a collecters' item.

    of course!!haha..yikes! I'm perpetuating the dumb blonde MYTH:p I think I remember hearing something recently about a controversy concerning his work? something involving some of the species..maybe using his illustrations of proving the existance of some thought to be instinct or native to the area??hmmm have to look that one up...

    hey I thought that was on Sanibel anyway..no? or maybe I'm thinking the Nature Reserve..hmmm and is Magaritaville on Captiva?or is it Cheese burger in Paradise? WOW I haven't been back down to that area of Florida in 5 years!!!!! OMG that's just way too long! Used to go almost every year:(

    That's because he was rarely sober enough to find the only exit.
