From an email that I sent to a friend of mine:

Cuban food:

Seafood:

Ask around for other spots. I don't really eat anywhere fancy when I am down there.

Places to go:

Snorkeling:
(1) dry tortugas - this is a cool fort, with lots of great snorkeling around it.

(2) hit the back country - take a boat tour, or a snorkeling tour out here. Allegedly, it is the best place to go on the water

(3) you can swim with dolphins on one of the trips

Nightlife:

(1) Irish Kevin's on Duval is my favorite place. There is always a guy playing an acoustic guitar there. It is normally a really fun time.

(2) Fat Tuesday's - maybe a block away from Irish Kevin's. Lots of frozen drinks. It's a cool place to hang when the weather is nice (it's always nice).

(3) Rick's - a dance club. Shake your moneymaker.

(4) Bull and Whistle bar - head upstairs to the Whistle Bar. It is a rite of passage for everyone that goes to Key West.

(5) Sloppy Joe's - I'm not a fan of Sloppy's, but you should check it out anyway.

Pools:

(1) Dante's - if you want to hang by a pool, this is the place: http://danteskeywest.com/

Other stuff:

(1) Hemingway House - the place is huge. It is cheap to get into, and it is a nice way to kill a bit of time.

(2) Southern Most Point - a photo at the SMP is a must

(3) Lighthouse - http://www.kwahs.com/lighthouse.htm

(4) Taylor state park - check out the fort and the beach.

(5) Rent scooters and drive around.

(6) Mallory Square - the freaks come out at night. it is kind of like Times Square here in NYC...just smaller. http://www.mallorysquare.com/
