Following the drive down the Florida Keys, we stayed overnight in Key West at Papa’s Hideaway. I managed to research and book this bed and breakfast less than 24 hours in advance. Most inns have a minimum night stay, or bust the budget for us poor college students, but Papa’s Hideaway was a hidden, and economical, gem. Located just a few blocks from the busy section of Duval St, and within walking distance to the Southernmost Point, the bed and breakfast gave us refuge from the noise without lacking any Key West charm. Breakfast was simple–nothing homemade, simply boxed cereal, bagels, or toast. However, that was all we needed.
Wandering the city on foot is the best way to view the city, both in terms of people-watching and architecture. Despite eating breakfast at Papa’s Hideaway, we snuck in another meal at the Six Toed Cat Café.
