The Historic Seaport has got to be one of the coolest places in Key West and it is home to some of our favorite restaurants and shops. You can walk the seaport from Front Street all the way around to Caroline to the ferry terminal. If you want to take pictures, a morning stroll along the docks is a sure thing if you walk with your sun to your back. Not far from the ferry terminal is Half Shell Raw Bar where Josh loves the group po boy topped with munster cheese and cole slaw. Joe is more likely to get the broiled seafood combo, but you're sure to find something you'll love on the menu. If you do head to Half Shell, there are a few parking spots right out front, but you are more likely to find parking in the big lot on Caroline or even at the city parking garage. And if you do go, be sure to stop and say hi to Josh and Joe Travels!

Caroline Street by the seaport is filled with great shops and restaurants and one of the oldest in the Keys has got to be Pepe's Cafe. Pepe's is nearby several of our other favorites, and there patio is a good place to be during happy hour. Pepe's also serves a full breakfast which we think is one of the best times to try a new restaurant in Key West. Thursdays are normally turkey special nights, and Sundays are bar-b-que. Duval is full of a lot of action, but we think you should walk over to Caroline one night and check out the menu at Pepe's, and be sure to say hi if you see Josh and Joe Travels!

One of the best parts of being in the Florida Keys is all the fresh seafood, and if you are visiting Key West for the first time one of the best places to try for lunch is BO's Fish Wagon. BO's has been around for a long time and you'll find them at the corner of Caroline and William not far from the historic seaport area. BO's has a simple menu and all outdoor seating, so this is a great pick for lunch on a nice day. So the next time you are in Key West stop by BO's Fish Wagon, and order the grouper grilled and fried shrimp just like Josh and Joe Travels!

The first weekend in spring is a great time in Indianapolis because there are so many events happening around town. One of our favorites is the Woodruff Place flea market, which is an annual community yard sale on the near east side of Indianapolis. The flea market is on Saturday and Sunday, and the historic neighborhood can become a congested area when the yard sale crowds show up, but if you look around you can normally find street parking within a few blocks. You can find a lot of the typical yard sale items at the Woodruff Flea Market, but there is also normally a good selection of furniture. We saw a set of mid century chairs for sale, and later that week we saw the exact same chairs in a remodeled home on HGTV, so you can find some cool stuff. And if you want to make a day out of it, start at Woodruff, then hit the Indy Urban Flea and the Midland Antique Market which are both nearby. Be sure to say hello if you happen to see a great mid century find being loaded in the car by Josh and Joe Travels!
