Things To Do In Key West For First Timers

People snorkeling the Key West waters

Go Snorkeling
This one’s first on the list because snorkeling in Key West is a favorite activity for locals and visitors alike. Explore the best snorkeling spots on a Fury trip or at your own pace.

Try Parasailing For The First Time
If you’ve never been parasailing in Key West, then make your first time with Fury. Our experienced captains and crew will give you the ride of a lifetime.

Eat Conch Fritters or Conch Chowder
There are a variety of food stands and places to try conch, but there’s only ONE Conch Republic Seafood Company. Located in the Historic Seaport, this must-visit restaurant offers waterfront views, live music, happy hour specials, and fresh seafood. Tell Them The Fury Crew Sent You!

While we’re on the subject of conch
For more than 50 years, the best open-air sightseeing experience in Key West is the World-Famous Conch Tour Train. Kids ride free and adults enjoy the historic overview of the island.

Try a Frozen Key Lime Pie on a Stick
Sure, Key Lime pie is a requisite while visiting the Florida Keys, but what about frozen key lime pie dipped in chocolate on a stick? Absolute decadence and you’ve gotta have it!

Explore the Key West Cemetery
This is one of the quirkier cemeteries you’ll come across and a unique tourist attraction on the island. With an epitaph inside that reads, “I told you I was sick,” you’ve got to see it for yourself.

Get Lost On a Bike Ride Through Old Town
Get off the main drag of Duval and explore the quiet beauty of the island’s side streets and hidden treasures. Since you’re surrounded by water, you can’t get too far off course, so pedal wherever your heart desires.

Get a butterfly to land on your shoulder at the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory
You’re surrounded by hundreds of beautiful butterflies. If one lands on you, it means good luck!

Find a Six-Toed Cat at the Hemingway House
The Hemingway House is where Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote many of his greatest novels in the 1930s. Tour the house and discover the descendants of his six-toed cat Snowball. These were considered lucky by sailors because they were skilled at catching rats and other vermin on board.

Watch the Sunset Every Night You’re Here
There’s nothing more beautiful than a Key West sunset and, while you’re in paradise, you should resolve to see it every night. Head to Mallory Square, the rooftop of the La Concha or aboard the Commotion on the Ocean.

Find some treasure on a scavenger hunt
To each is their own, so if you’re idea of treasure is a frozen cocktail after a long, hot day at the beach, then try a Bar Crawl with the Southernmost Scavenger Hunt team. They offer a variety of fun itineraries that give you a great tour of the island and help you meet new friends along the way!
