Key West Girlfriend Getaway

A whirlwind of girls who just wanna have fun

By Casey Wohl

My autumn is just not complete without a fantastic Key WestKey WestGirls Getaway, and Key West was my destination of choice this year. My cousins Kelly and Nikki joined me on a 7-hour road trip to the Southernmost Point of the U.S. Wanting to make the most of the trip, we covered a lot of ground.

We arrived at the Casa Marina Resort & Beach Club. They're almost done with their remodeling, which looks great already, and their pool and beach areas are Capt. Tony and the girlsCapt. Tony and the girlssome of the best on the island.



Our dining choices included:

Our nightlife crawl included:

  • Garden of Eden, a clothing optional bar, which everyone should at least visit (it makes great stories for your friends back home).
  • Capt. Tony's Saloon, where Hemingway used to hang out. We chatted with the 91-year-old Capt. Tony himself (he's quite the ladies man, so beware).
  • Hogs Breath Saloon where "Hog's breath is better than no breath at all."
  • Sloppy Joe's Bar, which has been a Key West tradition since 1933.

During our days, we laid out at the Casa Marina's pool, visited The Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory, the Harry S Truman Little White House Museum, the Audubon House and Tropical Garden, and rode the Key West Trolley. Of course, we also found time shopping and watching the sunset from our hotel - beautiful.

It was a fabulous trip filed with memories to last a lifetime!

Make sure you convert your cash at the airport so you can buy a cold beer on the bus on your way to the resort. They will take canadian money but not loonies and toonies. "

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
