Valentine’s Weekend is a time for romantic fun
Valentine’s Day is a day of love and romance for some, a day of chocolate and cards for others, and for many of us it is the day when we affirm our strong feeling of affection with the three words “I love you” over a romantic dinner with a glass of red wine or extra pink martini. Here are few romantic things you can do with your loved ones on that special day in Key West and remember it for many years to come.
Charter a plane with Key West Seaplanes and whisk your loved one for a short ride over the beautiful Florida Keys. A smooth, quiet ride, it is the scenery you do not want to miss. A small plane will fly just the two of you over small uninhabited islets and sand bars and make you to immerse in that feeling of being over the clouds.
The sparkle of rare gemstone earrings, the irresistible softness of cashmere scarf, serene figures cut of volcanic rock, a crisp robe from India. These are but a few of the tactile experiences at Grace, a premier boutique in Key West’s historic Old town that offers a refreshing new aesthetic to the island and serene escape that is as beautiful to experience by touch as it is by sight. Whether the featured jewelry, scarves, linens, pottery and statues, or among the romantic items from travels all over the world, you will always find something new and original. 600 Frances Street 305-294-0864

Even with only one major road, the Keys still offer hidden gems tucked back in side streets. Heading north on US1 from Key West a sign on the left side of Little Torch Key announces simply “Bar & Grill”. This marks Kiki’s Sandbar, a gem hidden in plain sight. Kiki’s offers the service, quality and cleanliness of a fancy restaurant with easygoing coastal informality that sets apart Florida Keys dining. Local seafood and flavors of the island do justice to the setting, creating an overall package of complete, unique Keys experience. 183 Barry Ave MM 28.5 Gulfside, Little Torch Key. 305-872-4500
