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!

  • 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. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
