Taking the kids to the Florida Keys

We settled on Islamorada, a village of four islands not far from the mainland and still 2 hours from Key West. The area felt central and had multitudinous offerings for children.

Our hotel choice — discovered on-line at hotels.com — was the Postcard Inn, and it charmed me like few other places I’ve been. From the road, it looked unremarkable and dated, a roadside hotel. But as we entered, it unfolded into a low-key resort of stylish tranquillity. With several casual restaurants, including a great waterside raw bar, the resort offered easy access to meals without a lot of cost or drama.

When we visited we didn’t see a lot of organized resort-style activities for kids. Then again, we were there to play with them, not send them to summer camp. When we needed a break from the sun, we played Ping-Pong or visited the game room — an adorable space lined floor-to-ceiling with soft fake grass alight with faux fireflies, a climbing wall, and free Pac-Man. Nearby were board games, newspapers, and computer access … what more could we need for a rainy day? (If we even had one.)

The inn’s rooms featured a carefully thought-out mashup of decor — retro, modern, and nautical. I loved the quixotic quotations stenciled on the walls. (“I went fishing with Salvador Dalí. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish,” was credited to S.W., apparently the comedian Steven Wright.)
