The party atmosphere is always present in Key West, the ultimate place to ring in the new year.  KeySchooner Wharf New Years Eve Wench.jpg
 West is one of the few cities that is ALWAYS featured on the live national news feeds. There are certainly many reasons for its allure and popularity.  First off it’s WARM!!! Imagine welcoming in the new year wearing shorts and flip-flops….  You can’t get any better than that!

Then there’s the choice of where and what to watch. In Key West there are four different and fantastical places.  All within walking distance of one another, islanders go above and beyond the dropping of a  lighted ball at midnight!

  •  A CNN favorite -  Local drag queen "Sushi" is one of the most celebrated events of the evening in a big red, high-heeled shoe, being dropped from the 801 Bourbon Bar!!
  • Catch a free concert by the Sunset Pier, at the Ocean Key House (1 Duval Street) - with the dropping of the customary key lime wedge
  • A giant Conch Shell drops from above as New Years Eve is celebrated at Sloppy Joe’s
  • Lastly is the Dropping of the Pirate Wench  at the  Schooner Wharf Bar 

Whichever you fancy, an escape to Key West can get your New Year started off right and may it be filled with fun, laughter, good health and a fantastic TAN!!
