Cruise Ships in Key West

By

On average, there are two cruise ships each day docked at the Navy's "Mole Pier" here in Old Town Key West.  When you are near the area, you can't help being impressed by the massiveness of the vessells, and the number of tourists spilling out of them.  Each month, Key West's retail area, primarily historic Duval Street, is visited by tens of thousands of visitors from the ships.  The local merchants love them, of course.  My company's office, in fact, has ship visitors drop by every now and then, and some do actually make purchases!

It is impressive.  I've docked there on two separate occasions.  My excursion started the same each time.  A trolly ride/tour and then onto Margaritaville.  Last time we ended up on the roof of some building that a local told us would have a great view of the city.  Um, it had a view, but not of the city.  It was a girls vacation, so we kind of got a kick out of that one.  But, beautiful city with some of very impressive architecture.
