Key West loves Tennessee Williams as much as he once loved our little 4 by 2 mile island! We celebrate his birthday every year with locally acted productions of his most famous plays and showings of his works that made it to the big screen. It doesn’t end there. He’s honored with short story writing and painting contests complete with prizes and an awards ceremony…and cake, because what birthday is complete without cake?!? Visit their website to sign up to compete or to purchase tickets to the shows and events.

5.  Indulge at one of Key West’s newest joints: Milagro

Milagro’s menus are produced from scratch cooking almost entirely in-house, including their homemade corn tortillas.

The 61st Annual Key West House & Garden Tours is a series of elegant and unique private homes of Key West, ranging from exquisite restorations to creative renovations, and the interior design that complements each.

2. Watch “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years”.

When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the
same time, Nick and Nigel Bottom set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the
scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz. Performances at 8 p.m., at Waterfront Playhouse. 

 

1. Experience Key West Food Tours’ Historic Seaport Tour

It’s never a bad time to jump on the Historic Seaport Tour, but March happens to be a particularly great time to do so. The sun is out, the food is hot, and the drinks are on ice. Guests get taken “behind the scenes” of Duval and led through side streets which feature some of THE BEST (but not always most widely known) eateries Key West, FL has to offer! As a bonus, your guide stops throughout the tour to highlight architectural, historical, and cultural fun facts. You leave full and happen to learn something while getting there…money well spent.
