There is always something happening in Key West, but with the summer season fast approaching and Memorial Day right around the corner, there is a lot to celebrate in Key West this weekend! Whether you’re looking for a new cultural experience, a heart-pumping adventure, or a relaxing extended weekend, you can find it all right here.
Many view Memorial Day as the unofficial mark of the beginning of summer, but more importantly, it is a day to honor the men and women who died while defending our country in the US Armed Forces. The History of Diving Museum will be honoring military divers with a variety of special events and programs. Enjoy extended hours until 7 p.m. on the night of programs, interactive events and free showings of classic films this weekend.
For those looking to beat the heat, head to the coast where plenty of water sports and activities will help you keep the temperatures low and your adrenaline high all weekend long. Jet Ski Island Tours will be offering 2-hour, fast-paced guided tours along the Key West shores. If you can keep up with the tour guide, you’re in for an exhilarating ride! Or, for a more subdued experience, you can go at your own pace and catch up with the group back at the docking station.
A Memorial Day Weekend in Key West would not be complete without hitting up the Duval Street restaurant and bar scene. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville is a popular destination for those looking for a cool island cocktail and a laid-back dining experience. May is Burger Month at Margaritaville, so be sure to try out one of their mouth-watering specialty burgers this weekend! Another Key West staple is Sloppy Joe’s, featuring a rich history in Key West tradition and home to some of the best parties in town. Our very own Azurea restaurant located at the end of Duval Street right on the beach boasts an eclectic menu and elegant atmosphere – the perfect place to wind down after an eventful day in the sun!
