When thinking of Saint Patrick’s Day, people all across the country commonly use the phrase “The Luck of The Irish” during the cultural celebration. This catch-phrase is typically thought to mean “extreme good fortune and happiness.” Well, we believe this to be true every day of the year. At the Key West Historic Seaport we believe in fortune and happiness, sprinkled with some luck, keeps you going from one adventure to the next. It is because of that mentality that March at the Historic Seaport is one of the most lively months of the year!
With Spring Break upon us, The Key West Historic Seaport has a vast selection of activities for students to choose from. To escape the textbooks and harsh cold temperatures, many students crave sand between their toes and the sweet sun shining upon their faces. What better way to partake in adventure than migrating down to The Key West Historic Seaport to enjoy in some much needed rest and relaxation? From sailing adventures, fishing charters, delicious restaurants, and quaint shops, students can free themselves of academic responsibilities, while getting a history lesson in fun, creating monumental memories in Key West at the Historic Seaport.
If you’re feeling extra lucky and want to enjoy some Pre-Saint Patrick’s Day festivities then come on out to The Schooner Wharf Bar Entertainment and Open Air Art & Music Affair. This 19th Annual event is an unforgettable tradition at The Key West Historic Seaport. On March 2nd come shake your shamrock to some live music, sip on refreshing cocktails, taste some locally prepared food, and venture around while checking out unique art from Key West locals.
If you and your friends are looking for something fun to do, we highly recommend creating your own Saint Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl. Start your day off by “Getting Your Irish Up” at the Schooner Wharf Bar. Be sure to wear your green when you stroll the harborwalk waterfront in the heart of the Key West Historic Seaport.
Start the evening off by visiting the famous Half Shell Raw Bar or Turtle Kraals at lands end on Margaret Street. At 4:30 pm both restaurants have an amazing happy hour offering half off drinks and food specials. From there head on over to the Waterfront Brewery along the harborwalk on William Street. This is a come one, come all, kind of brewery where they offer daily brewery tours, a vast selection of craft beers and wonderful food (try the amazing pretzel sticks with homemade beer cheese sauce). Slip upstairs to the rooftop bar for live music and one of the most incredible views in Key West! If you haven’t had your fill yet, Schooner Wharf at Williams Street and Lazy Way Lane offers up some of the best Saint Patrick’s Day fair in town! Their traditional Corn Beef & Cabbage is a Saint Patricks Day staple at the Historic Seaport. From there walk to whatever direction makes you feel lucky. End the night at either B.O.’s Fishwagon on Caroline Street or Conch Republic Seafood Company on Greene Street. Both restaurants have an open-air environment, live music and, of course, incredibly fresh seafood.
Whether your in the mood for a quiet water excursion with Calypso Sailing, a ride on one of our Conch Electric Cars, a cup-o-jo at Cuban Coffee Queen, a tour at Fort Jefferson Museum, finding unique treasures at Local Color, or a parasailing ride at Sebago Watersports — The Key West Historic Seaport has all you need this month and all months to follow!
