Every summer, boatloads of white-bearded literary enthusiasts descend on Key West to take part in the annual Papa look-alike contest at Sloppy Joe’s Bar. The contest, organized by the Hemingway Look-Alike Society, is only one of many Papa-related events and spectacles in Key West.
There are only a few small beaches on Key West, but Dog Beach is a Bring Fido favorite. Dogs will have some fun in the sun here, but be sure to keep a close eye on your pup, as this is a rocky beach. After getting a little exercise on the beach, head over to Louie’s Backyard, which is located next door to the Dog Beach and is a pet-friendly place to grab a refreshing beverage.
