Going to visit the USA for the first time!
Ok, I was born in Holland, recently moved to Belgium and the number of foreign countries I visited is just sad.
Germany, Denmark, Poland (as a toddler) France (only Disney Land) and England (London only).

But now, I'm going to take a leap forward and cross the pond!

My buddy invited me over to Key West to spend Thanksgiving with him!
Another first.

Any reccomendations on what to do during my 2 week stay? (Nov 22 to Dec. 6)

Ohmy

You do know that the place is full of Murikans, right?

No

I'm sorry. In advance. Just know that I had little to do with any of this. No

Whatever you do, have fun. And please, please, please do not associate me with any of the mouth breathers you see in Florida. Or the ones at the TSA booth in the airport. Or the ones in blue costumes with the fancy lights on top of their cars.

Like Miso said, I had nothing to do with this clusterfuck.

And if they bust through the door of the place you're staying and shoot you because they got the address wrong on yet another senseless, destructive, inhumane, immoral drug raid, don't say you weren't warned. Wink

Recommendations?
Well, locals will love your accent. You might be addressed by stereotypical views promulgated by Fox News about foreigners, don't let it get you down. Lots of us Floridians are nice folk.

Though it's been a very long time since I've been there, the Keys I remember were more like the North than really being part of the dreaded South.

Ah, Key West.

Plenty of this
