How to Spend Spring Break 2024 in Key West

Although Spring Break in the Conch Republic might be considered low-key compared to some other Florida destinations, Key West still knows how to have a good time. After all, Spring Break falls in the middle of our high season, one of the most gorgeous and lively times on the island. Here are some of our favorite things to do and events taking place during Spring Break in Key West for the 2024 season.

[29 of the Absolute Best Things to do in Key West in 2024]

Get Out on the Water with Fury Water Adventures

Add a little adventure in your spring break with water tours by Fury Water Adventures. Hop on a jet ski to explore the backcountry of the Florida Keys or rent a stand-up paddleboard for a full body workout and an epically fun way to play on the water. One of our favorite and most popular Fury packages is the Ultimate Adventure H2.0 with its pop-up water park in the sea. And then there’s always the Commotion on the Ocean Sunset Sail with margaritas and live music.

For a limited time, 24 North Hotel is offering a special Jet Ski for Less package which includes a guided tour for two on a tandem jet ski and an arrival gift that includes reef friendly suntan lotion, SPF lip balm, and a wellness kit.

Take a Dip at Smathers Beach

For some more relaxed moments, Smathers Beach is a wonderful destination to soak up the sun and breathe in the salty air. The beach is just a short drive down Roosevelt Boulevard, the same street as 24 North Hotel. Not only is there tons of sand, but shady coconut palms, beach volleyball, and water sports too.


Relax Poolside at Toasted Coconut

The beauty of 24 North Hotel is that you don’t have to leave the premises to have a good time. That’s where Toasted Coconut, our laid-back poolside restaurant and bar, comes in. Lounge out by the pool, sip on the namesake Toasted Punch cocktail, and eat well. Try the Conch Fritters or the Blackened Mahi Tacos. They’re delicious. Plus, when you stay with 24 North Hotel, you’re in the middle of Rooster Row, our beloved island neighborhood with a bevy of spirited bars and restaurants.

Get a Scoop of Tropical Fruit Ice Cream at Flamingo Crossing

Die-hard ice cream fans can’t resist a scoop on a warm spring day. Let your tastebuds guide your Spring Break travels to Flamingo Crossing, a tasty ice cream shop in a bungalow on Duval Street. Try housemade ice cream, gelato, or frozen yogurt in tropical flavors like Cuban coffee, key lime, guanabana, and piña colada. They also serve a variety of dairy-free sorbets and liquor-infused gelato with flavors like rum raisin and rum runner.

Salute! the Sunset

Located on Higgs Beach on the southern end of the island, Salute! is one of the island’s best (and only) beachfront bars and restaurants. Created by the proprietors of the iconic Blue Heaven restaurant, Salute! features lighter, Caribbean-influenced takes on Italian classics. Party island-style by watching the sunset dip below the horizon over tasty bites and drinks.


Take the Ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park

Plan a sunny boat trip from Key Bight to the small islands 70 miles west of Key West. Dry Tortugas National Park is a birder’s paradise, a history buff’s treat, and a snorkeler's dream (hence the name “tortugas” for its abundance of sea turtles). Today, most visitors head to the park to explore the civil-war era Fort Jefferson or dive beneath the surface to see the island’s rich marine life, coral reefs, and historic artifacts.

Hang with Queens at Key West's Best Drag Shows

For fans of song, boozy bevs, and an all-around good time, the Conch Republic’s drag bars are ready to step into your Spring Break spotlight. See the Best Drag Shows in Key West, read up on places like 801 Bourbon, Aqua, and La te Da, and don’t forget to bring cash tips.

Enjoy Lively Libations on a Key West Bar Crawl

Slather on the SPF and soak up a Spring Break that’s uniquely Key West. Bar crawls are often the best way to introduce yourself to a location - and our walkable island makes it easy. We recommend beginning your crawl at the eastern edge of the Historic Seaport before heading west along the waterfront boardwalk towards Mallory Square. You’ll pass Key West happy hour hotspots like Half Shell Raw Bar, Schooner Wharf Bar, and Conch Republic Seafood Company.

“Our family of four…stayed here for Spring Break. The room was nice with a pretty nice pool. There were always plenty of towels and chairs at the pool. Our daughter loved the robe…and the fact that a small fridge and microwave in the room helped with popcorn and snacks. The shuttle runs really frequently and is easy and FREE! We would definitely stay here again with kids. It's far enough from Duval Street to be kid-friendly and the shuttle gives access to downtown.” - Krissylindsay88, TripAdvisor
