must see the truman house, very good and the conch train was excellent, i've been to key west 3 times and never took the train. i learned a whole lot from the excellent tour guides.
Don't Miss: truman house

Must go horseback riding at the ranch, our tour guide was very funny, was a short ride to the ranch and they were very patient about putting people on horses esp. beginners. not much to see but fun anyway. afterwards lots of tequila and corona beer. yum.
Don't Miss: buena vista horse ranch

this place is a joke, very poor and no beaches except at private resorts. it rained the whole time we were there. we had planned an excursion to dunns river falls, we boarded a bus very early in am and took us 2 hours over mostly bumpy dirt roads to get there, as soon as we made it there they cancelled the trip due to weather, we were refunded our money , but what a waste of time. we were suppose to get off and shop at the craft market but didn't. i'm glad because the place looked like a dump.
Don't Miss: don't bother

Pros: the entertainment was wonderful, the food was delicious

Cons: lack of entertainment while at sea

Recommends Radiance of the Seas? Yes!
