Key West June 2019 is Jam Packed! A List Of The 7 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:
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.
Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic
Regional winners from LGBT bars in 17 North American cities are to compete from June 4-10th to create an original Key West cocktail that reflects the island’s sunny community spirit.

Party With Pride
Arguably one of the biggest events in Key West, Pride 2019 is going to be nothing short of amazing. June 5 -9th, 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.
