7 Things to Do in Key West on a Summer Getaway

  1. Take a break from the sand and surf and visit the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. If you stay still enough, one of the over 50 species of butterflies might land on you.
  2. Learn about the aquatic life that calls Key West home at the Key West Aquarium. Time your visit to this attraction right, and you can watch a shark feeding.
  3. No trip to Key West is complete without getting your photo taken in front of the Southernmost Point Buoy. We recommend checking out the webcam feed to see how busy it is before heading over.
  4. Enjoy adventures on land and sea at Fort Zachary Taylor State Historic Park. In addition to being one of the best snorkeling spots, this park also features stunning trails.
  5. Leave a day open to visit Dry Tortugas National Park. Wander the ruins of Fort Jefferson, or cool off by going for a swim.
  6. For a thrilling day on the water, set off on a jet ski rental. Places like Sunset Watersports and Key West Jet Ski Adventures offer top-of-the-line rentals. The latter even offers guided tours.
  7. At the end of the day, make your way to Mallory Square to take part in the nightly Sunset Celebration. We recommend getting there early to enjoy the street performers before snagging a prime viewing spot.
