If possible, consider planning your trip to Key West around some of the great local events that take place here during the year.
For example, March is the time of year for the annual Key West House and Garden Tour. Our annual powerboat race regatta occurs in November. Jimmy Buffet and the Parrotheads also arrive in town every November to celebrate the Parrotheads in Paradise festival.
Certain holidays also are great time to visit Key West. Valentine’s Day, for example, is a wonderful time to visit with the person you love, especially if you usually live somewhere where it snows in winter. Imagine coming to the warm and sun of southern Florida to enjoy the annual celebration of love? Wonderful!
