Things to Do in Key West in June

fury things to do in key west in june

Summertime in the Keys is a beautiful thing! Though temperatures are definitely rising, humidity hasn’t maxed out quite yet and there’s still a light breeze to keep you comfortable. Fluffy clouds and clear water mean that prime boating season is upon us, and locals and visitors alike are chomping at the bit to get on and in the water!

Go on a Staycation

Living in Key West has its benefits, from endless beach days to quirky nightlife. Pretend you’re on vacation without losing the perks of home with a summer staycation! Pull up a chair at your favorite restaurant, read a good book on the beach and take advantage of the island’s tours and attractions. Every June, Monroe Country residents can enjoy free admission to Old Town Trolley, Conch Tour Train, Truman Little White House, Shipwreck Treasures Museum and Key West Aquarium during Local’s Month. Hop aboard the trolley to explore the entire island, or focus on Old Town aboard the train. You’re bound to discover a new piece of Key West!

Swim Around Key West

Calling all competitive swimmers! The month of June includes two different opportunities to compete in 12.5-mile swims around the island of Key West. The two races, organized separately by the Key West Athletic Association and Florida Keys Community College, welcome hundreds of swimmers from across the country (and world!) to circumnavigate our southernmost island. Though each race starts from a different beach, they both include options for solo or relay teams and require support vessels for each swimmer.

Celebrate Key West Pride

Key West is proud of its motto “One Human Family” and throws an incredible Pride party each June to celebrate diversity and the LGBT community! The five-day Pride celebration is a non-stop party featuring off- and on-the-water events, including eco-tours, cocktail competitions, Ms., Miss and Mr. Pride pageants, and a street fair. Fest revelers should get their tickets early for Fury’s Tea on the Sea dance party and sunset sail with a premium open bar. The Festival culminates with a parade down Duval Street that’s punctuated by a 100-foot rainbow flag!

Embark on a Sunset Sail

The Key West sunset is postcard perfect when viewed from land, but it becomes a truly awe-inspiring experience when seen from the water aboard a sunset sail. Fury offers two awesome ways to savor the sunset! Sip on complimentary champagne, wine or beer while you watch the sun melt into the horizon aboard the Champagne Sunset Cruise. Or enjoy margaritas and munchies aboard our popular Commotion on the Ocean Sunset Cruise, a floating concert featuring live music from local singers and occasionally nationally recognized songwriters!

Get a Bird’s Eye View of Key West

You’ll gain a greater appreciation for our small, but beautiful, island when you see it from one of the city’s tallest structures – the Key West Lighthouse. Built in 1848, the lighthouse functioned for well over a century before being decommissioned in 1969. Today it’s a museum, but the nominal admission fee and 88 steps are well worth it for the view! From the top you can see both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic oceans, and this time of year the island is ablaze with the orange-red blooms of Royal Poinciana trees.

The Ultimate Adventure is perfect for families looking to soak up the sun and splash around in the water all day long. This all-inclusive, full-day watersports package includes snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing and kayaking. And don’t forget breakfast, lunch and refreshments to help you refuel throughout your Key West adventure. It’ll leave dad feeling like a kid at heart as he bounces around on the water park toys. And for families who prefer a peaceful afternoon spent together, try the Glass Bottom Boat trip.

Don’t worry if you’re unable to celebrate the holiday with dad. You can still purchase a gift certificate for his favorite Fury trip.

Channel Your Inner Artist

Key West is overflowing with natural beauty and colorful characters, so it’s no wonder the island has such a thriving art scene! The Studios of Key West is a cultural organization and arts center that not only showcases the talents of local artists, but also offers various art classes and workshops, and hosts concerts and events. Whether you’re looking to admire an exhibition or try your hand at painting, check its website for information and stop by its three-story Old Town location.

Stay and Play in Key West

The only thing more memorable than the fun and excitement of your Key West summer vacation will be the price you paid for it. The more money you save, the more you’ll have for a watersport, land tour, or delicious dinner along the seaport. Fury’s all-inclusive vacation packages include accommodations at a local hotel or resort paired with a variety of your favorite watersports. How does this sound? Wake up in a fluffy bed with the ocean breeze outside your window, then head over to the Westin Marina to embark on parasail and jet ski trips. Make this a summer vacation to remember!

Catch a Flick

Escape the summer heat at the retro-cool Tropic Cinema, a local movie theater located on Eaton Street. Playing a selection of mainstream & indie films, this four-theater building is an air conditioned sanctuary when the temperatures start climbing at the beach. Catch a matinee or evening flick while enjoying a tub of buttery popcorn.

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

When you’re vacationing in paradise, the classic saying “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” couldn’t ring more true. When the summer heat has made you thirsty for a cocktail, venture down lively Duval Street to popular favorites like Sloppy Joe’s Bar, Lazy Gecko and Rick’s Bar. You’re bound to find a happy hour special that suits your thirsty tastes. Or seek the laid-back island lifestyle with a stroll to Mallory Square for a classic Cuban mojito at El Meson de Pepe. The fresh mint and lime will cool you down while the Bacardi Light Rum will liven your spirit.
