Ring in 2023 on the isle of Key West!

New Year’s on Key West is a fun celebration with plenty of parties and events. Visitors come from all over to witness the Last Sunset Celebration on Mallory Square, the Dropping of the Conch Shell at Sloppy Joe’s, the Red High Heel Shoe Drop Starring Sushi, and the Pirate Wench Drop at the Schooner Wharf Bar and Galley. And once the party is over, you have a whole new year ahead of you. To help you plan your 2023 island adventures, here are five Key West New Year’s resolutions that we hope to fulfill.

5. Set Sail on a Wind and Wine Sunset Sail with Danger Charters

Ranked as the #1 thing to do in Florida on TripAdvisor.com, the Wind and Wine Sunset Sail is a famous adventure, complemented by fine wines from around the world, international beer, and specialty hors-d’oeuvres. You will set sail on a Historic Key West schooner and enjoy eight different wines while witnessing the sunset from the water.

4. Enjoy Dinner on the Beach at Latitudes on Sunset Key

Latitudes on Sunset Key offers a unique, alfresco dining experience. Positioned on Sunset Key, a very short boat ride from Key West, you can escape for a special evening of fresh island cuisine and open views of the water. Ranked as one of the top romantic restaurants in America, Latitudes is the ultimate place to go on a date. 

3. Visit Mallory Square at Sunset

Every evening, Mallory Square comes to life for a Key West Sunset Celebration. You can spot magicians, jugglers, clowns, and psychics. The atmosphere is enhanced by local musicians and food vendors. People come to Key West to express themselves. And there’s something about the sunset that brings out the artist in all of us.

2. See a Show at the Waterfront Playhouse

Entertaining audiences for over 75 years, the Waterfront Playhouse is a classic Key West institution. Drawing talent from all over the world, you can enjoy professional acting in an intimate setting. With live comedies, dramas, and musicals, there’s always something interesting to see at the Waterfront Playhouse.  

1. Experience Dry Tortugas National Park 

Located 70 miles across the open water from Key West, Dry Tortugas National Park and historic Fort Jefferson are in a world of their own. On a trip to this land of coral reefs, clear water, and small islands, you will experience magical snorkeling spots, secluded beaches, guided tours of Fort Jefferson, and unique interactions with nature.  Access is by ferry, sea plane or private boat charter.
