I spent a lot of my days in swimwear...

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear A sexy bikini definitely is standard attire indoor and outdoor a lot of the times in Key West. The men wore their swimwear around the clock, it seemed. All you need is a t-shirt and flip flops. Ahh! The life....!!!

Special Items in Key West

Luggage and bags Carry some clothes in you carry on bag, especially when travelling from a colder climate. Airlines are notorious for not getting bags onto planes from Miami to Key West, and you won't want to be lounging around in jeans when you get there. The good news: planes often come in only an hour or two apart and the airline delivers luggage.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Bring more bathing suits than you think you need, and don't go too heavy on the formal wear. Almost every restaurant in key west accepts diners in shorts and nice short-sleeved shirts. Also, bring water shoes if you're squeamish about rocks or plantlife on the ocean floor.

Photo Equipment Film is expensive in key west, so bring your own. If you must buy more, go to the Eckerd on Simonton, not one of the souveneir shops on Duval.

Packing List

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear I'll just tell you what NOT to bring. No long sleeve shirts, pants, boots, sweaters, coats, or thermal underwear. In fact you can leave the socks home too. Swimwear, four pairs of shorts, five T-shirts, and all the undies you'll need for the time you'll be here and that's about it. Oh, and sunglasses.
