There’s lots to do and see during a Key West vacation, but sometimes you need a day off – especially after a night out on Duval Street. Here are some ideas to enjoy a slow-moving Sunday in the Conch Republic.
Catch brunch at First Flight
What better way to start a lazy Sunday than by eating your first meal at a vague hour? There’s no rush and you never run late. We suggest brunch at First Flight in Old Town, located a block down from the Mel Fisher Museum (see map). Brunch runs 10-2 at this laid-back spot with agreeable outdoor seating under the trees. A variety of eggs benedict, a pancake bar and bottomless mimosas will hit the spot.
Hail a pedicab
Take a ride up or down (and back up around) Duval Street via pedicab. Feel the wind in your hair and give your feet a rest. Visit the Southernmost Point, the Butterfly Conservatory, the Key West Lighthouse, or just enjoy a ride-around.
Spend the day at the pool
The obvious option for a lazy Sunday is to hang out at the hotel – and at 24 North, that’s a perfectly comfortable way to spend the day. Relax by the pool, get fresh fare from The Toasted Coconut (or the nearby Blind Pig food truck), enjoy a mojito from the Republica Bar & Lounge located in the lobby, and watch the day go by.
Beach day at Smathers
Do some reading, catch some sun rays or snorkel around Smathers Beach to while away your Sunday. Sunset Watersports rents out beach chairs and umbrellas if you want to set up your perfect spot for lounging. Smathers is the largest public beach on the island, beginning at the zero-mile marker and stretching along New Town (roughly 3 miles from 24 North Hotel).
See a Movie at Tropic Cinema
Tropic Cinema is an independent movie theater that plays blockbusters, independent films and cinema classics. Make a night of it at this nostalgic theater with art deco themes. Stop by the snackbar – the fare is better than what you find in any chain movie theater. See movie schedule.
