bigger (though not unmanageable) crowds and higher prices. If you are planning
to spend Christmas in Key West, book as soon as possible to ensure you get a
room and that you get it at a reasonable price. Call the hotel or guesthouse
directly to negotiate rates; who knows, maybe the staff will give you the gift
of a discount!

Before Christmas down on the corner of Green St. The Harbor Walk will be lit up
in holiday lights from November 27 through Christmas, creating a merry and
wonderfully bright atmosphere for walking through with your sweetie or family.
December, 2013 also marks the start of the first annual Key
West Holiday Fest. The festivities begin on December 1 with the Key West
Artisan Market on Eaton St. This Key West Christmas attraction features art,
food, wine, craft beer, shopping, and entertainment. Next up is the Key West
Holiday Parade on December 7, filled with creatively decorated cars and floats,
as well as an appearance by Key West High School's marching band. Don't miss
the fest's crowning event – the 23rd annual Schooner Wharf Lighted
On December 15, check out Key West's Christmas on the
Sheriff's Animal Farm. This kid-friendly event is free and open to the public.
At 3 pm, head over to the Southernmost Point to participate in the setup of the
southernmost Christmas tree and community party sponsored by Monroe Association
for ReMARCable Citizens.

during December in Key West; you don't want to be uncomfortable walking around
with cold feet!
