The Amateur Traveler talks to Casey Wohl the author of the Girls Getaway Guide to Key West about Key West Florida.

We will talk about how the area has changed in the last 20 years from Jimmy Buffet’s famous Margaritaville to an area with numerous nice restaurants, art galleries, and hotels.

We will also talk about beaches, Ernest Hemmingway, and other island characters and how to catch a spiny lobster with your tickle stick.
