We go every year. We like to stay on Marathon because it's halfway to everything. The main things to do there are boating, fishing, jet skiing, snorkeling and diving. There is a very nice little marine animal attraction on Islamaroda called Theater of the Sea, you can swim with the dolphins there or just enjoy the park and see the shows. Key West is fun for the people watching, lol. There is some touristy stuff to do there, historical stuff and all, but overall most people go to Key West to get drunk on Duvall St. Another thing that is important to know about the Keys is that there aren't a lot of 'beaches'. The islands are rocky, any little beaches are man made. Bahia Honda Nat'l Park is a good place to go for a beach experience and you can rent canoes and kayak and go snorkeling there. If you have kids, go to the Miami Zoo. It's very close to the Keys and is awesome.
