Romantic Sunset Sail or a Party Booze Cruise
Going to Key West without seeing its legendary sunsets is like missing the Eiffel Tower on a trip to Paris. Sure, you can get plenty of pictures and time to ooh and aah at the Mallory Square sunset celebration, but why not get up close and personal with a sunset sail? Watching the Key West sun slide gently below the horizon is a beautiful experience, especially with your friends, family or sweetie by your side.

Catch a Key West Sunset at Mallory Square
One show you don’t want to miss is the famous nightly sunset celebration on the Key West
waterfront. As the sun dips low over the Gulf of Mexico, crowds fill Mallory Square, once the anchorage of Keys’ pirates. Today the wharf is a scuttle of vendors, jugglers, escape artists, gymnasts, psychics and magicians, each holding their own spellbound audiences – all for the price of an applause (or the much-more appreciated tip).
Go On a Day Fishing Trip
Whether you're an expert at Key West fishing or you've never picked up a pole in your life, there are many fishing captains who can accommodate your fishing expertise (or lack thereof!). The fishing in Key West is so good, it's a rare day that you don't go out and actually catch something. The best thing is about it...you can take your catch to many local restaurants and they will cook your fish up (inexpensively!) for your dinner.

Ride the Famous Conch Tour TrainThis classic sightseeing train has been around long enough to give Key West legend Ernest Hemingway a ride! It’s actually a motorized trolley on wheels rather than a train, and it will take you around to every major sight on the Island with an entertaining guided tour. It’s a great way to get a feel for the town, and to enjoy the sights without having to exert yourself. The staff is super friendly, and the company prides itself on an enjoyable ride – so much so, they offer a no-questions-asked, money back guarantee. You can also purchase a photo of you and your traveling companions on the train as a souvenir!
sunsets? Rent a boat? Booze Cruise? Snorkel? Dive? Parasail? Whatever your heart's desire, Key West has everything you could possibly want to do on the water! Visit: http://partyinkeywest.com/key-west-things-to-do.html
Stroll Along the Famous Duval StreetFeeling like just taking in the scenery and laying low for the day? Well, take a stroll along the famous Duval Street is a definite must. Duval Street is to Key West what Bourbon Street is to New Orleans. In other words, it’s the center of all the action! This street stretches the width of the Island – from Gulf to ocean – and along it you will find a slew of bars, restaurants, shops and cafes. This is the ultimate Key West party experience, and as you stroll, you can stop every few feet to cool off at an outdoor bar with an ice cold frozen libation under refreshing water misters.
Key West Bars and Nightlife
And last, but never, ever least...we get to the party! After spending the day doing watersports,
For most people, though, Key West partying means hitting Old Town’s Duval Street, crowded big-name bars like Sloppy Joe’s, Hog's Breath, the Bull & Whistle, Captain Tony's, Willy T's and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. If you can hit all of these famous bars in one night, it's called the Duval Crawl! Get your crawl on!
