Bars/Restaurants/Sightseeing within 3 days

My wife and I are turning 30 and it's our 1 year anniversary. Looking for the best places to eat/drink (specifically seafood) and some cool places to see. We were also thinking of driving to Key West in a convertible from Ft. Lauderdale. Suggestions? Ideas? Thoughts? Concerns?

The better part of the Keys for driving is IMHO the lower part of the Keys - The part up by Miami you can't see the water that well.  So you might fly to Key West and spend a day or so there (without a car - you might want to rent bikes - parking is a big problem), and then rent a car and drive back up the Keys.  Places to eat include Seven Fish Turtle Kraals Restaurant & Bar Blue Heaven Restaurant, and Louie's Backyard.  Watch the sunset at Coconut Mallory Resort & Marina and take a Conch Train tour.

On the way up or down the Keys stop at Bahia Honda State Park which has the best beach in the Keys, and if you are there on a weekend, you might like the Big Pine Key Flea Market.  You can also stop of in Marathon (which has lots of restaurants) and visit Pigeon Key which is where Henry Flagler housed the workers who were working on his railroad.  You can see the old bridge there on Pigeon Key and also the old RR bridge is still there in Bahia Honda.  In Bahia Honda, they put the road on top of the railroad bridge.

Hello David!

Fort Lauderdale offers a wide variety of restaurants. Let me suggest just a few such as Zinburger Wine & Burger BarVillagioSeasons 52P.F. Chang'sIL Toscano Ristorante Italiano, Brio's Italian Restaurant. If you go to the Key West, I will suggest that you visit Islamorada and Plantation Key.

I was going to add restaurants in Marathon, but I couldn't get it to save.  Keys Fisheries is one good one for lunch.  Also Burdines Waterfront
