Although the Florida Keys are best known for fishing, the drinking establishments are a close second. So, where are the best places to enjoy a brew with a view? In Key West, Schooner Wharf has a great view of the harbor (from the front) and two happy hours daily. Also in Key West, on the other side of the island, and for a completely different experience, try the Afterdeck at Louie’s Backyard. Stunning doesn’t even begin to cover it.
Further north, Lorelei in Islamorada often has live music (and a great view – are you starting to see a trend here?) Even farther north, along Card Sound Road (a toll road, and an optional detour from US1), just as you are starting to relax, Alabama Jack’s can help ease you into the Keys state of mind. Enjoy the view of the mangroves, cold beer and even have a bite to eat.
