Key West June 2023 is Jam Packed! A List Of The Best Things To Do.



It’s officially summer and Key West continues to sizzle with events happening this June. School’s out and days grow longer giving you plenty of time to soak up the sun here in the sub-tropics. Dance, eat, swim and learn this month with our must-do’s list:


Party With Pride

Arguably one of the biggest events in Key West, Pride 2023 is going to be nothing short of amazing. June 7th -11th, it’s 5 fun filled days of street parades, rainbow bike rides, parties till the sunrise, and Mr. & Mrs. Pride pageants. Get lost in the glitter and represent One Human Family.

Swim Around The Island

Cool off June 1st and jump in for this 12.5 mile swim around Key West. You’ll be swimming in 80 degrees (cooler than being on land), through two different oceans: the Gulf of Mexico & Atlantic. Take on the feat solo, or join a relay time and become a true merperson.

Live The Local Culture

Indulge in some of the freshest seafood in town on the Historic Seaport Food Tour. Fisherman deliver their catch daily and you truly get to taste the culture of Key West. This afternoon will leave you feeling like a local.
