Living in Key West is not easy. It is not easy finding gainful employment. If you are coming looking for a life partner, most of the single people are either alcoholic or on drugs.

Make sure you have a suitcase full of money.

EVERYTHING is way overpriced, including rent.

If you're an illegal you'll get a job right away.

Most singles aren't drunks or on drugs tho, at least in my circle,

If you want to live on Duval St you will see these elements. There is so much else to do in Key West ( Watersports, Fishing,Diving,Dry Tortugas Trips, exercise in great surroundings)which is why so many people come here and stay as long as they do, and even buy a second home.I moved here 12 years ago and have not found a better place.I tried the Southern Hemisphere and England,East and West Coasts of the US but nothing compares for me. It is what you make it. Wanna drink and be an alcoholic you can do that anywhere.Wanna be warm and have fun with people doing the same thing try Key West out most people want to come back.Enjoy it.I would be happy to help answer any Real Estate related questions. www.Keysforme.com

I have vacationed there and have always had fun. I am suddenly in a situation where I can live wherever I want to according to my employer(software/work at home)and I am so tempted. I just don't know how I'd like living there but living in the cold Northeast and having no ties really anymore makes it that much more tempting.

well i like it here i go to the aqua every other weekend with my neighbor even tho i cant drink lol. everyone that i met is nice so far. but just a hint it is a very high cost of living here. i am used to small towns and my head is still spinning. bubba is right tho there r alot of drunks and they r very rude sometimes. but you can still have fun without going on duval everynight. if you have any q's feel free to email me at chandley_1986@hotmail.com and when u get here me and my neighbor need more girls for girls night lol its every other weekend at the aqua.

Pay no attention to "Brady". He's Robert Krutko, who lost it all in KW becuase of his own stupidity. You can find more about him on Google and the Monroe County sheriff's site. He also lives in Ohio ..... whick speaks volumes.

Hey, I'll be moving within a month. Are there any family-friendly (i.e., kid-heavy) areas? I have a 10 year old son, so I'd like for him to be near other kids.

The area around Bayview Park has potential?

Thanks for any comments!

Hey there Katelyn! Thanks for the tip, tragically their policies don't allow me to join (well, I could just pretend to be a mom I guess). I'm a single dad.:)

Generally speaking though...off the top of your head...is the area around Bayview Park family friendly?
