    Dave, tentatively we were talking about being in Key West May 3-5. We haven't locked down anything yet though.

    That looks like it might be a good place. I'm up for anything really.

    It sounds nice and the rooms weren't that bad (if I understand their pricing model) but they were pretty clear about no groups sitting around socializing. While I know that we are very close to Duval, I also know our group and it is unlikely that we won't gather at the hotel (guest house) and socialize.
    We haven't decided which car we would bring down there. It will either be the Cutlass or the Solstice.

    When I originally looked, it said free parking and then I saw it was free street parking. I don't mind parking the Solstice in the street, but I wouldn't want to park the Cutlass there. There is a pay parking lot around the corner that is $20 a day. We did book a room there but it is refundable so if we find something better, we can just switch.

    Parking in Key West is going to be the main issue. Not a lot of places have their own lots. Once we're there, we probably wouldn't use the car until we leave though.

    I'll keep looking and see if I can come up with other places.

    It looks nice and the rooms are "reasonable" for Key West. I looked at booking from May 3-5 and it was about $300 a night.

    Well that is a bummer - so IF you drive down you could always stop at Cafe Risque in Micanopy FL. It appears to still be open and is conveniently just off I75. I know, its not doughnuts but they might have some pasties (or is that pastries?)
    Had been to the Gatornationals and was heading down to Don Garlits museum by back road, came up to interstate and Bam there it was we'd been laughing about it the whole trip. My buddies wife said that's as close as you get! Oh you count on me as very interested but would depend on John's schooling.

    There's a mix of conventional hotels, mostly near the water, boutique hotels and air bnb's. Pretty much any type of property you want to stay in is available. I've stayed at a couple small places down there. One of them is Heron House https://heronhousehotels.com/ and Hotel Pegasus https://www.pegasuskeywest.com/). Both were very nice. Heron House was the nicer of the two.
