Since travel is all about good vibes, planning a getaway to one of the most chilled-out destinations in the world has never been easier. Key West’s laid-back charm is a traveler’s dream, allowing one to feel totally refreshed when it’s time to get back to the real world. And isn’t that the point of taking a trip in the first place? Here are a few reasons why Key West is the most easy-going vacation destination.
We love Fantasy Fest
Fantasy Fest is where anything goes. The annual 10-day party in paradise features block parties, a parade down Duval Street, live art and entertainment, island arts and crafts, food vendors, and lots of over-the-top costumes. Fantasy Fest draws 75,000 revelers to Key West, so it's never too early to start planning your trip. Reserve your spot at Fantasy Fest 2021 ahead of time at 24 North. Our New Town hotel offers hourly shuttle services to Mallory Square, great amenities, onsite food and beverage options, and spacious suites to relax in after a day of Fantasy Fest revelry.
We have Morning Happy Hour
The early bird catches the worm - and the drink and raw bar deals. Places like Schooner Wharf Bar and Sunset Tiki Bar in the Historic Seaport both have pre-lunch happy hours that offer morning patrons something a little stronger than a cup of coffee. Rise and shine with Sunset Tiki Bar’s 2-for-1 Bloody Marys during their 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. happy hour or Schooner Wharf’s daily 7 a.m. to noon happy hour which offers friendly prices on succulent oysters on the half shell, fresh-off-the-boat drunken shrimp, Bloody Marys, mimosas, beer, wine, and well drinks.
We are ‘One Human Family’
‘One Human Family’ is the official philosophy of the Key West community. Created by local activist J.T. Thompson, the motto was officially adopted by the city in 2000 and would later come to represent the whole of the Florida Keys. The warm-hearted motto unites locals and visitors alike regardless of their race, nationality, or sexuality, in hopes that people of all differences can find inspiration to grow together.
We Keep it Casual
From their fashion choices to their dining preferences, the island’s locals are all casual, all the time. If the Key West carefree locals are feeling good, you're sure to feel blissed-out, too! Most of Key West’s bars and restaurants are open-air and informal, while some of our favorite activities include sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, and lounging by the water.
We reap the benefits of ‘Vitamin Sea’
Science says the sea and sand does the mind and body good. The colors, noises, and smells of the ocean are associated with feelings of calm and peace, which can slow us down and put us in a soothed state. Key West is a destination that’s defined by water. The island is famous for its clear turquoise waters, so the beaches are an obvious place to start when it comes to enjoying the ocean. The Historic Seaport is also a popular place to arrange a day on the water, whether you are looking for a boat excursion, day of fishing, jet skiing, snorkeling, or diving.
Now, all you have to do is put this information to use with a trip to Key West, where summer never ends. Our hotel in New Town has a low-key vibe and we offer an onsite Starbucks, awesome pool area, and other amenities that make 24 North Hotel your best choice. Read more about our special offers.
