Five Reasons to Visit Key West After Hurricane Irma

Because it's Key West! 

From nightly sunset celebrations to colorful sunrises and swaying palm trees, Key West is still that stunning little island you remember. Not a night goes by without street performers delighting and surprising at Mallory Square. The Southernmost Point is still a bucket list photo op, and walking, biking or hopping on a scooter remain the best way to get around the island.

The Awesome Activities & Attractions You Know & Love 

Whether your vice is sunbathing at the pool, touring the town on a Conch Train, or hopping aboard a fishing charter, Key West has something for everyone. Amazingly, most of Duval street and the surrounding neighborhoods fared exceptionally well, and are still serving up the best of Key Weird! All major attractions are open, so go ahead and plan your trip to the Hemingway House, grab some Key Lime Pie on a stick, and head to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and soak up some sun.

The Beyond Gorgeous Weather 

It’s called paradise for a reason! Storm or no storm, our Key West weather hasn’t changed and we remain one of the warmest places in the continental US. With an average temp of 78 degrees in the spring, the sun and cool ocean breeze create the ideal climate for the Key West activities of your choice.

The Best Bars in The Keys 

Yes, we know this is what you were really waiting to read about – and let’s be real, they’re the best bars in the entire country. Don’t worry, your old favorites are OPEN and have been for months. That includes Sloppy Joe’s, Green Parrot, Captain Tony’s, Smallest Bar in Key West, The Porch, Aqua…[insert your favorite bar here if we’ve missed it] – the list goes on. We’ve also got daily happy hours at our very own Salty Oyster. Key lime martini, anyone?

Supporting the Locals 

The island you love is still home to your favorite bartenders, housekeepers, front desk agent, and waitstaff. We thrive on tourism just as much as you thrive on a warm weather vacation! We don’t want anyone to be nervous about coming back down to Key West post-hurricane and hope this blog helps put your mind at ease.

Now get online and start planning your next vacation in paradise – you’re likely to find some great deals from local businesses (including The Perry!) who are eager to welcome you back. Start planning your getaway now!
