The Greatest Time of Year has Arrived at the Key West Historic Seaport!

‘Twas was the night before Christmas, and all through Key West,

Not a creature was stirring, not even the houseguests.

No stockings were hung by chimneys this season,

No need for a chimney but there’s a good reason.

Christmas in the Keys is magical and such a delight,

The marinas and palm trees shine with colorful lights.

Ditch the chilly weather and come down for some fun,

Who wants to be cold when you could be laying in the sun?

So kick off your sandals and hangout in your bare feet,

Unwind with a mojito for a sweet Christmas treat.

We want you to join all of our Seaport traditions,

Try something different and be our new additions.

For a holiday to remember that is way more than alright,

Come to the Historic Seaport this month, here’s your invite.

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

New York has its own traditions, such as watching the ball drop in Time Square, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, and ice skating at The Rink at Rockefeller Center. Key West may not have snow and freezing weather, but our crazy traditions are ones that everyone loves to be a part of! Who needs to watch the lowing of a ball when you could ring in the New Year with The Lowering of the Pirate Wench! Trade in your boots for sandals, earmuffs for sunglasses and winter coats for bathing suits when you plan your holiday season this year at the Key West Historic Seaport!

There are plenty of holiday events happening during the month of December to participate in. Schooner Wharf Bar’s annual Tree-Trimming Party and Toy Drive event is on December 4th and their lighted boat parade will be on December 10th. Check out our website for an updated list of events happening this month! A house decked out in lights is always a cheerful sight, but an entire Harborwalk intertwined with lights is a one-of-a-kind view that you don’t want to miss! The Harborwalk of Lights will feature Christmas Trees that light up the Historic Seaport and spread joyful cheer into the air! If you’re still adding to your holiday gift list or looking for the perfect present, browse through our many shop to find exactly what you’re looking for.
