    Yeah, it will be hot that time of year, but you're right, the town's oceanside setting makes it that much more bearable. As for the party-town vibe, I don't think you need to worry too much. Just stay away from Duval Street later at night and you'll be fine. My wife and I honeymooned here and managed to avoid the seedier, uglier stuff. That said, the atmosphere on the waterfront at Mallory Square is really fun; totally family-friendly, if a little crowded and overdone when the big cruise ships are in. That said, plenty of low-key places, beaches, and attractions in and around Key West to make this a good family vacation pick. If you haven't already booked, check out our family-travel expert's profile of the Beachside Resort (http://blogs.away.com/travel/2008/08/the-other-key-w.html).

    The trick to Key West over the holidays won't be in finding places that are open -- this place lives to party, plus rests on tourism -- but finding places that aren't booked solid. Good idea to start looking now!

    There is a passenger ferry that plies the more sheltered waters between Marco Island, Ft. Myers, and Key West, but no ferry from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. It's a fine drive along the Overseas Highway, but it is SLOW! It can take anywhere from four to six hours from Miami. The other option is to fly into Key West, though flights to this small regional airport are expensive. Check the following website for ferry info from Ft. Myers (journey takes 3.5 hours): http://www.seakeywest.com/

    The normal water temperature is in the mid 70's in November. It will usually fall through the month depending on the frequency of cold fronts coming down from the North.For the last couple of year's the annual low has been about 68, which doesn't happen until late January or February
