Okay Spring Breakers, how are you holding up? Last week, the big Florida schools (UF, FSU, et al) went on break and brought the party to their Key West spring break. It also reunited some of my favorite little collegiate Key West native ladies: Cassandra, Olivia, Kayla, Jenna, Lea, Annabelle, and more. This week, my alma mater the Georgia Bulldogs are on break and the town is just as packed!
So… wanna party like the beautiful native ladies do on Spring Break? Start your night at the Alamo. This bar is hidden away on a side street just off the epicenter of Duval Street’s Key West Spring Break craziness. This is my girl Annabelle’s favorite watering hole in town, and she told me it was the spot to escape the crowds and still have a raging party with the locals.
Sloppy Joe’s is a Key West legend—and for good reason! There’s always a raucous party underway. One of my most memorable nights in Key West went down at Sloppy’s. There were great bands all week, as usual, and the girls couldn’t resist hitting the dance floor into the wee hours.
McFadden’s on Greene Street is the newest bar in town and the locals have certainly been flocking. What’s a Key West Spring Break without dancing on the bar? Good thing McFadden’s boasts a huge one, so the girls just had to line up to shake it! With beer chugging contests, Jersey Shore Wednesdays, and wild bikini contests, McFadden’s should definitely be on your Duval crawl!
Party all night, but what to do during the day? That’s easy. Of course, at Fury, we’re offering parasailing, snorkeling and sunset sailing, plus our Ultimate Adventure.
For these native girls, many of whom are Fury Girls in their own right, they head out to Boca Grand or Snipes on someone’s boat. The stunning sandbar islands are about twelve miles offshore. Anchor the boat, crack a beer, and splash in the shallow water all day long.
Fury has just started a brand new Island Adventure trip out to Boca Grand, so be sure to ask about it the next time you’re in town!
Happy Spring Break! Be safe, do your homework, wear sunscreen, and have fun!
