Model, mom, and entrepreneur, Kristen Taekman does it all. When she’s not running her blog, Last Night's Look, and starring in The Real Housewives of NY, she spends her vacations Key West, Florida. On today’s video, watch Kristen walk us through some of her all-time favorite things to do in Key West.

  • Incredible food, a welcoming and relaxing environment, and a beautiful ambienceacan all be found at Michaels. This tropical steakhouse features favorite traditional dishes such as short rib, snapper and salmon all to enjoy on your next outing.

  • Kick back relax and have a few drinks at Green Parrot, a favorite local bar. As a self-described Key West Icon, this bar invites tourists to skip the ever-popular Duval Street and get a taste of how the locals drink. Order the Green Parrot’s famous Rum Runner and, come morning, you’ll be back for their Bloody Mary’s.

  • A favorite restaurant among locals, Seven Fish is a wonderfully quaint hometown bistro. Fresh, local fish are caught daily and prepared for delectable dishes. Favorites include mahi mahi and sashimi alongside a hearty meatloaf or steak.

  • For a nightly festival of art, talent, and food, checkout Mallory Square’s Sunset Celebration. Marvel at the brave street performers riding unicycles and playing with fire or support local artists and explore the art and crafts exhibitions.

  • What better way to tour the island’s favorite attractions than on a Conch Tour Train? Skip the average tour buses and get some fresh air while learning about this island’s rich history from expert guides. A family-friendly experience, this 90-minute tour will take you through Old Town Key West and pass by Ernest Hemingway’s home and museum.
