Six weeks have passed since Hurricane Irma showed her ugly face in the Florida Keys, primarily impacting the middle and lower Keys about 20 miles North of Key West. Magically (see more on the mystical Grotto here), Key West was spared from much of the devastation and is now back to normal… which if you know Key West, is not normal at all.
Last week many Key West lovers flocked down to take part in the annual Halloween celebrations known as Fantasy Fest. It was such a fine sight to see so many people enjoying our glorious island again! If you weren’t able to make it to Fantasy Fest, don’t worry: There are a great number of fun events on the calendar for the rest of the year, including next week’s 37th Annual Super Boat Races, where guests can witness exciting power boat races right from the Truman Annex waterfont.
Now that Irma is in our rear-view, we need your help in bringing the activity back to our island! Despite the media’s portrayal of Irma’s impact, Key West was mostly spared – but what is now hitting us the hardest is the misconception that we are not yet open for tourism. The island opened back up for tourism on October 1 and is back in full swing at this point. If you love Key West, it’s time you escaped all of your worries and took a relaxing vacation to our beautiful island. The weather is literally perfect, the beaches are glistening and you couldn’t pick a better time of year! Support your favorite vacation destination AND do your quality of life a favor by making a plan to spend a few nights, a week, or a month in the Conch Republic!
To make the deal even sweeter, we are offering some AMAZING specials that you will not want to pass up like our Procrastinator’s Discount, Snowbird Special, and Kick Start Key West. See our specials page for details. Discounts included in online quoting.
Should you have additional questions about the impact of Hurricane Irma, the state of the island or our properties, please do not hesitate to call us directly at 305-292-6266.
Key West is BACK IN ACTION and ready to welcome all Conch lovers from around the world!
Key West has always been a little left of center, and so it was with Irma, which passed 20 miles to the East of us.
We are thankful, but wish the best for our brothers and sisters in the middle keys, where the impact was greater.
Key West is back to normal (whatever that is) and better than ever, so come take it easy - enjoy your favorite restaurants (all open!), visit your favorite watering holes (all ready to pour your drinks!), take a dip in our beautiful waters and catch some fish & some rays of sunshine.
If you've always loved Key West, there's never been a better time to come! If you have a reservation with us after October 1, 2017 - we are ready and awaiting your arrival unless you have heard from us directly stating otherwise.
