With warm, sunny weather and plenty of tropical pre-holiday cheer, now’s a great time to visit the Florida Keys and Key West. From Key Largo to Key West, the 2023 holiday season features spirited events such as lighted boat parades, only-in-the Keys frivolity, sparkling waterfront celebrations and other island festivities.
As the Florida Keys & Key West celebrate their 200th anniversary year (marked on 3 July), here’s what’s new and noteworthy throughout the island chain:
Pumpkin Key, a private island in the Florida Keys - part of the exclusive Ocean Reef community and less than an hour from Miami – has been placed on the market for $110 million, announced Russell Post, chief executive of Russell Post Sotheby’s International Realty, Ocean Reef’s leading residential real estate firm. Pumpkin Key offers a unique mix of seclusion, splendour and convenience.
First-time visitors to the Florida Keys comment almost immediately on the island chain’s unique laid-back atmosphere that seems to be a world away from big cities and theme parks.
