Prices

A description of Eating prices would be nice. I would add it, but I'm not sure what is considered a budget and what is considered Splurge. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 199.72.72.165 (talkcontribs) 13:35, 16 March 2006 (EDT)

This has been added in the intervening time (thanks, contributors!). However, it's now the Sleep section that's starting to get out of control; it's long enough that dividing it by price sections would help, if anyone's got the appropriate information. Dguillaime 02:45, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Grave Stone

While I agree that, that photo is not the best in the world, it does reflect the common tale, told thoughout the cemetary. If you have a dislike for it, please discuss it here and refrain from deleting any photo's on Wikitravel, without discussion 2old 11:59, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

Need more Key West information on major calender events. —The preceding comment was added by 108.124.118.255 (talkcontribs)

So add some. =) LtPowers 18:23, 13 May 2011 (EDT)

So, I'm pretty sure that the US Border Patrol's checkpoint has been gone since shoftly after the island's secession, but I am not totally sure on this one, since I have never actually driven into Key West, just arrived by cruise ship. Some quick GoogleFu and reading shows no indicator that the check point still exists. This from the Conch Republic's website:

Thus, the plucky little Conch Republic was born. Amazingly, the United States government, although they immediately removed the roadblock, never bothered to react to the secession. They never sent even the littlest letter informing the Mayor that they objected to the secession, or "...while this was quite funny, you must realize you cannot be a real country..." Nothing, zip, zero, nothing by way of response...

Secession? What secession? LtPowers 18:35, 18 April 2012 (EDT)
The often lauded event in the early 80s that helped create what most people consider to be The Conch Republic. But that aside, still not really finding anything to make me think the checkpoint is there these days.
