The wife and I have always wanted to go to Key West. I am planning on a trip next year, spring time maybe. I am from the Seattle area, 30 years, and was transplanted here in Alabama. My question is when is the best time to ride the Keys? And are there any special places to see? We really like to see the history, old bars and such not to much a fan for tourist sites. My plan is to run hard to Fort Myers then take the back roads / along the water maybe, head East on Hy 90 / 41 and into Key West.
