It’s hard to find time to connect with the people we love because of all the daily interruptions. From work to family and social obligations, it’s easy to inadvertently put our partners on the back burner until it’s too late.

From romantic accommodations to fine dining, underwater adventures, peaceful nature walks, and glorious sunsets, the activities available to you in Key West allow you to center each other and truly reconnect.
Where to Stay
Relax under the gently swaying palm trees while lounging at the jewel of a courtyard pool at Havana Cabana Key West.
Charming guest room decor is elegant and rustic, reminiscent of Old Havana style but with all of the modern conveniences you could want. Hop the shuttle and visit downtown Key West easily, or stay on property and enjoy drink specials, waterfront views, and the cozy hot tub.
Eating Well in Key West
Indulge in freshly caught seafood served in a casual setting with al fresco dining at Eaton Street Seafood Market and Restaurant. You’ll be amazed at the menu, which showcases their house-made sauces and accompaniments.
Try the conch fritters for an authentic taste of Key West or go with the ever-popular fish sandwich. Eaton Street also offers its menu items to-go so you can grab a quick meal and have an impromptu picnic on the beach if you’d like.
For a romantic treat, arrange in advance to have a picnic organized by the Key West Picnic Company. With your guidance, they’ll offer you a location, packed meal, and all of the accoutrements that will make it an experience to remember.
Whether you’re planning a proposal or just want to create a lasting memory for the two of you, the folks at the Key West Picnic Company are prepared. From the fully stocked wicker basket to comfortable throw pillows that make it a truly luxurious experience, every amenity has been thought of.
Enjoying Nature’s Best
Visit the public beaches in Key West for a delightful day of fun in the sun. There are four public beaches here, and while they each have their own character, they all welcome tourists as well as locals.
Consider renting a beach chair and umbrella for maximum comfort. Many of the beaches offer snorkeling gear for rent, too. If you vacation with a pet, know that Higgs Beach is pet-friendly and dogs are welcome here.
Make a visit to the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden for a peaceful walk through a lush and pristine ecosystem. While it has been severely damaged after hurricanes a few years ago, the park is recovering well.
Stroll along the wooden paths to enjoy the native plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs that can’t be found anyplace else in the continental U.S. Bring your binoculars for birdwatching fun, too, as many native birds enjoy the natural habitat that the garden provides for them.
Quality Time for Two
A great way to spend more quality time together is by booking a charter fishing trip. Whether you’ve got a lot of experience with fishing or you’ve never even held a rod or reel before, a charter fishing trip with All In Fishing Charters can be a fun and exciting way to spend the day.
The type of fish available to you can vary according to the time of year but fishing charters go out year-round so there’s always something to catch. The charter boat has everything you need, plus the crew can provide helpful advice if you need it.
Enjoy wreck, deep water, and reef fishing, and don’t forget your camera!
Hop aboard a sailboat for a sunset cruise off the coast of Key West. See the city from a fresh perspective and enjoy the storytelling of a professional tour guide who can share a local’s affection and appreciation for all of the highs and lows of this uniquely American city.
Most sunset cruises offer guests light fare like appetizers and snacks as well as cocktails, wine, and beer for refreshment. A few even offer live music.
Every couple needs a break from day-to-day life to reconnect and recharge. A weekend in Key West can be a great place to find yourselves and rediscover all the things you have in common while also building new memories together.
Enjoy beachy sunrises, exciting state and national parks with world-class snorkeling and diving, charter fishing expeditions, fine dining, and the best fresh-caught seafood you can imagine.
