First time I stayed in Islamorada was back in '82. The Cheeka was the place. I think it was about $79 a night. Crazy what it is now but still a great property, worth going for a drink or walk around. There was a place called the Holiday Isle that had a Tiki Bar that was the place to be. Rum Runners were the rage. Ahh the good old days.

RE...Mrs. Macs Kitchen...you'll find her at mile marker 99.4 , U.S. 1 in Key Largo and if you can score a card somewhere at a tourist welcome station near her business the card is good for a free Key Lime Freeze...delicious

That's a real party spot! Enjoy. LOL
You aren't sleeping or anything right?
Check it out. And if you like it, go for it.
Lots of places to stay.
Cheers

We stayed at the La Jolla resort for a few days on our way through and had a good time, in a lost 50's sort of way. Also did Lime tree Bay and that was very nice (except the weather was miserable so couldn't really take advantage of it.)
