Over the first week of July, there always seems to be an overwhelming amount of options for things to do. Escape some of the hype at home for a unique patriotic excursion to Key West. Stay with us at The Southernmost Inn at Key West Florida and take part in several different festive events around the Fourth of July. Make this Independence Day a noteworthy adventure!
Indulge Over The Fourth
Though many areas are decorated to the gills in red, white, and blue, there is one spot in Key West in Lime — Key Lime that is! For four days over the Fourth of July week, Key West locals break out the best key lime recipes and celebrate this tasty treat with a number of events and activities at The Key Lime Festival. From pie eating contests to key lime rum tastings, this festival will have every key lime fanatic’s taste buds jumping for joy! If you are crazy for Key Lime, you do not want to miss this annual event.
Where To Catch The Best Fireworks
When the Fourth of July rolls around, many people think of parades, cotton candy smiles, admiring our nation, and of course fireworks! When you stay at The Southernmost Inn at Key West Florida, several spots are sure to get you a fantastic view of the fireworks. White Street Pier is considered one of the best places to view the fireworks as the pier stretches out into the water, but make sure you claim your seat early as the area can fill up pretty quick. Another option that gets you a front-row seat is reserving a spot on one of Fury Water Adventures boats for a fireworks cruise. With food, drinks, and music, this is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful Key West waters and watch the show reflect off the waves around you.
Tunes Under The Waves
The fun doesn’t end as soon as the fireworks shine in the sky and everyone turns in for the night. As the days continue even more events keep the fun going and one event that incredibly unique is the Annual Underwater Music Festival. This event consists of musicians taking their skills into the deep in a coral reef jam session. You will not find a subaqueous event quite like this anywhere else. Held at the Looe Key Reef, watch performing mermaids, rock ‘n roll scuba divers, and other aquatic musical performers take to the sandy-bottomed stage.
This year, to celebrate the Fourth of July, get patriotic and enjoy the festivities in Key West! Stay with us at The Southernmost Inn at Key West Florida and join us for an unforgettable holiday!
