For those of you looking to kick your New Year’s resolutions into full gear, the annual Key West Half-Marathon is just around the corner. Continually ranked as one of the best destination half-marathons in the United States, the Key West Half-Marathon is always a good time - and if you’re a regular runner, it’s a breeze.
If you’re headed to Key West in December, chances are you’re going to feel obligated to bring back a few souvenirs, if not some actual Christmas gifts. Luckily, this is Key West, which means you can find some pretty unique presents, courtesy of the one-of-a-kind boutiques scattered across the island.
Although Key West only covers 7 square miles, it seems like every inch of Old Town is covered in New Year's Eve festivities. From drag queens to parrotheads, there's a party for just about everybody, as the island's myriad of NYE celebrations cater to a wide range of personalities, much like Key West itself. No matter which you choose, you can count on a good time. That said, here are some of the most popular events year after year.
The new Starbucks inside 24 North Hotel couldn’t have opened at a better time. Not only is it the best weather of the entire year in Key West, but it’s also the start of the holiday season, which means the Starbucks holiday beverages. Now we get to enjoy the warm sunshine and cool island breeze – and we get to enjoy it with an Eggnog Latte in one hand and a sugar cookie in the other, a Gingerbread Latte tomorrow, and maybe even a Peppermint Mocha at night. With a Starbucks downstairs, we can get one whenever we want – and so can you.
