THE KEY

TO ADVENTURE

Key West is the very definition of laid-back living. Closer to Havana than to Miami, this colorful island at the end of the Florida peninsula marches to the beat of its own steel drum. Pedal past charming pastel-colored porches, paddleboard through thick mangroves, or join a sunset block party in Mallory Square. And if the locals don’t charm you, the key lime pie will.

LOCAL CUISINE

You can catch all kinds of exotic fish in Key West’s tropical waters, so it’s no surprise that much of the local cuisine centers on fresh seafood. Be sure to try some conch fritters and the iconic key lime pie, of course. When it comes to bars, you’ll find no shortage along lively Duval Street.

Local Cuisine

Locally caught fish is the main attraction in Grand Cayman cuisine. And you’ll find plenty of shellfish served marinated, in fritters, or in hearty chowders. Rum is the drink of choice, so make sure you try the “Cayman Mama,” a local signature cocktail made with light and coconut rums, banana liqueur, Triple Sec, pineapple juice, and a dash of Grenadine or strawberry syrup. Cheers!
