What a place! You can buy a bucket of fish for a few bucks and hand feed tarpon that are 6 and 7 feet long! It is wild! My kids and family have been going there since my oldest was 4. It is a wonderful place. There are T-shirts and other local "Keys" things for sale as you leave or you can just grab a popsicle. It is a quite an experience!
We buy most of our tack (when not purchased online) from this wonderful little shoppe. The salewomen are so helpful (have even stayed late when I was on my way to get there). My children often play in the store while I shop and it is just a wonderful place to find things. They will order it if they don't have it in stock for you.
Where else can you buy Birkenstocks for 1/2 price? This is a gem of a place where Tevas, Skekchers and other sandals are found at unbelievable prices. Awesome Tshirts and other things (Fresh Produce clothing and more). Cannot miss this spot if you are in the Keys!
I found Sushi Nami to be pretty good Sushi...but how can you fail when the fish just got caught that day? The prices are reasonable, the staff is good and there are plenty of selections on the menu. I enjoyed the food. I took out, so I cannot commend on the atmosphere, however.
If you want to stay in at the Marriot - Gus' isn't too bad. The food is okay, but the menu is lacking. The prices were high and it wasn't very "Keys-like". There are just too many other things close by to give you the real Keys experience!
I have swum with Dolphins in multiple locations - this is the place to do it. My children have also been. Lots of in the water time with the dolphins, dorsal fin pulls, toe pushes, great bonding time and such a wonderfule experience. Clean facility and very well cared for dolphins. Stop by!
I buy all my Key Lime Pie Mix, Key Lime Smoothie mix and even Key Lime coconut chocolates here. This place is awesome and the prices are wonderful. Very laid back - cool artwork for sale as well. A must stop if you are in the Keys. Very easy to find on Overseas Highway!
Rumor has it - Jimmy Buffet once owned it and I don't think I have ever been in the door when Buffet wasn't playing on the speakers. Great shop for special Keys gifts to take back home to friends and family! I must stop and you usually get a shark tooth for free when you leave!
When in the Keys - you must visit Sundowners. I highly recommend going at sunset so you can sit on the deck and waht the sun go down. The food is fantastic and so it is the atmosphere. A highlight of the Keys!
My husband is a General Contract and continues to go back to Plimpton and Hills for his specialized plumbing supplies. He has been shopping there for many years. Good, knowledgeable individuals.
