Feeling the thanksgiving spirit yet? Gladly here at Key West, we are experts on turning the Thanksgiving celebration into a warm holiday. And when we say warm, we mean it. Florida has fantastic weather in November, so it's possible to enjoy our favorite holiday outdoors!
The Holiday season is right around the corner, so you might be struggling over your Christmas presents for your adventurous traveler friends or family members. One idea is to take your family to the Key West… another idea is to plan a Christmas getaway to escape the stress of the holidays!
Whether or not you think that Columbus Day should be celebrated, the best thing (in our opinion) about this celebration is that we get the day off! That means an extended weekend in the Key West. And unlike Columbus, we won’t force you to adopt our religion (drinking margaritas until the early mornings) and certainly aren’t planning to off anyone that gets in the way of our mission (relaxing.)
September 4-8th you can see Key West’s pride in full throttle – WomenFest will take place to celebrate lesbians and friends! Events include cocktail parties, crystal readings, fire eatings, swimming with mermaids, burlesque shows, drag shows, parties and dancing, pool parties, and much, much more!
Does drinking for charity sound right up your alley? Well, we have just the event for you. Celebrate Labor Day weekend by tasting local brews, living the Key West life, and partying the nights away. We challenge you to try the 200 beers in one weekend! All proceeds benefit local charities.
This year marks the 23rd annual Key West Lobsterfest! Happening from August 8th - 11th. What is it?

Aka… delicious, succulent, fresh lobster, paired with a cold brew = pure joy.
This HUGE annual celebration is almost here. We're getting ready to honor the legacy of Hemingway, the American literary giant who dedicated his life to writing, who spent most of the 1930's here in Key West!
