Key West (and Stock Island) Await You Via Salt Island Seaplanes.
Heading to Key West via Salt Island Seaplanes? Make sure to save enough room on your trip to check out its even more laid-back (if that’s even possible!) neighbor: Stock Island.
Supposedly named for the herds of livestock formerly kept there, the community of Stock Island tends to be residential in character, rather than the more tourist-oriented Key West, with a year-round population who are as chill as the days are long. Although Stock Island may not have the booming nightlife that you might see in Key West, it is home to the Key West Golf Club and residential complex, which takes up nearly one-quarter of the island.
And the buzz to see what’s happening on Stock Island is growing, according to the Miami Herald.
Separated from Key West (to the south) by the Cow Key Channel, this off-the-beaten-path island has, over the last few years, developed a charm all its own via its various boatyards (featuring the area’s last working waterfront) and a burgeoning artist enclave and growing foodie scene.
If you are on the prowl for fun places to eat, one of the best and freshest places in town is Matt’s Stock Island Kitchen & Bar featuring a slew of creole and southern comfort foods and is one of the Perry Hotel’s (a great place to stay) two restaurants.
Hogfish Bar & Grill is Stock Island’s original destination restaurant, sits under a thatched roof and features outdoor seating. Once an old shrimper bar, it fulfills the fantasies of dining in the Keys. Go for the namesake hogfish (a snapper that’s abundant in local waters and cooks up flaky and sweet) sandwich on soft Cuban bread.
For more arty endeavors check out the fun and funkiness of Washed Up. They do it all, with a decidedly Florida Keys twist, including recycled furniture, fine woodwork and art, driftwood sculptures, custom frames, shelves and signs.
The artist collective called Coast is equal parts arts studio and concert hall. Started by boat captain Billy Kearins its a great place to “chill-ax” and catch some island flavor as well as some pretty good tunes.
