10 Fabulous February Events in Key West 2020

February-2020-lead

Winter in Key West means outdoor activities. With average February temps at a brisk 76 degrees (sorry to rub it in), we’ve got no reason to stay indoors with our a/c on. February is peak high season here on the island, which means plenty of events to fill up your social calendar. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite things to do this month… And none of them involve snow.

6. Daydream About Living On The Island

See what island life really feels like on the annual house tours. This might be our absolute favorite thing to do during this time of the year. We’re architecturally obsessed.  The tour is leisurely and you go at your own pace. There are five houses on each tour, with a map provided of where each one is in old town. What seems like a small, Conch house on the outside, will blow your mind once you step inside. Feb 15 & 16

 

7. Enjoy Tropical Weather (in Feb!) on a Walking Tour

Eat and drink like a local on the Southernmost Food Tour in old town. 75 degrees and sunny makes this walking tour a breeze, but learning about the culture through our cuisine is the standout of the tour. And trust us, we have the best rum runners on the island!

 

8. Luau on the Beach!

Please join us for Reef Relief’s first annual Luau Party at Lagerheads Beach Bar and Grill. Join us for a night of tropical food and drink specials, live music by the one and only Tony Baltimore, a silent auction, and luau games. All proceeds from the silent auction benefit Reef Relief.
