10 FUN Things to Do in Key West Florida

If you’re planning your own trip to the southernmost point of the US, here’s my list of the best things to do in Key West!

Drive Down the Keys

Unless you’re flying into Key West, there’s a good chance that the first thing on your list of things to do will be to take a Florida Keys road trip. Things are slow going and you’re going to want to stop and see sights along the way.

This is probably one of the most notable activities everyone must do in Key West. You have to go to Mallory Square at night about an hour or two before sunset and walk around the sunset celebration.

Sunset Celebration

Performers will set up in an open area of Mallory Square and put on a free show. It might be music, magic, or even a show all about cat tricks!

Food Tour

Doing a tour like this makes a great lunch time activity on your day of arrival. You’ll get some good food along the way, but more importantly guided tours help you identify any places you want to go back to later.

While aboard we enjoyed some wine while the attendants brought around a four-course appetizer tasting for us to eat. But on the water we were given a full horizon view of the sun as she dropped below the water.

Eat Key Lime Pie

No trip to Key West would be complete without eating some key lime pie. It’s a huge thing down there and restaurants brag about having “the best”!
