The Holidays in the Florida Keys

As the winter season settles across the United States, many people are hunkering down in anticipation of cold weather, rain, ice, and snow. The Florida Keys, on the other hand, are still enjoying limitless sunshine, fresh air, and fun. We’ve got activities for all ages and interests, and since many tourists have gone home, the islands are quieter and less crowded, making this a classic Florida vacation destination all year long.

The Holidays in the Florida Keys

No snow? No problem! In the Florida Keys, we’re always ready to celebrate in style. Check out our Key Largo boat parade on December 9, 2023. Each year, dozens of boats compete for various titles, including the most colorful, the most original, and the most thematic, with this year’s theme being “Christmas Around the World.” Boats will line up by 6:30 p.m., and snacks and drinks will be available.

Islamorada’s Holiday Fest is another major attraction. This year’s Holiday Fest will take place on Friday, December 1, 2023, at Founders Park. The official holiday tree, which stands at an impressive 35 feet, will blow 30 tons of magical snow through its branches for guests to enjoy. After joining in the snowy fun, you can browse the Holiday Gift Bazaar to shop for the perfect handcrafted gifts for everyone on your list. At 7:30 p.m. the Holiday Parade begins with festive floats, antique cars, and finally, the jolly old elf himself: Santa!

All I Want for Christmas Is …

You can create a holiday getaway as mellow and relaxed or as vibrant and action-packed as you want. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, check out the many silky-sandy beaches where you can snorkel, sunbathe, and picnic to your heart’s content. Go birdwatching or hiking for variety, or check out one of the area’s animal refuges or wildlife centers. If you’re more of an adrenaline junkie, we’ve got fishing charters that can take you just about anywhere you want to go, shipwreck diving adventures, and kiteboarding lessons. For a more laid-back vibe, visit our local galleries and museums, or shop our main streets for one-of-a-kind Florida Keys gifts, sweet Key lime pies, and freshly caught seafood. We’ve got it all!
