Visit the Custom House Museum Curated by the Key West Art & Historical Society, the Custom House is one of the most identifiable buildings in Key West. Located in the heart of Old Town right by Mallory Square, you can’t miss this giant red brick building. They’ve got some great exhibitions on view in June, as well. Learn about Key West past and present and marvel at the gorgeous works of art on display. You can see Marky Pierson Night Visions in Technicolor. Marky’s a longtime Key West resident and one of the most creative and provocative guys on the island. If you’re curious about travel and the tourism industry, you’ll love Key West or Bust, a History of Tourism exhibition. Key West has a long, colorful history in the tourism industry. Finally, artist Will Fernandez is also on view throughout the month of June.
Key West Pride Join the Pride festivities at one of the best destinations for the LGBT community from June 11-15. The week will include drag shows, dance parties, film festivals, clothing optional pool parties and, of course, the Pride Parade down Duval Street.

Key West Island Swim: FKCC Swim Around Key West Whether you’re a spectator or one of the steely competitors, the annual Swim Around Key West is an exciting event. A United States Masters Swimming event, the course is a total of 12.5 miles and swimmers can choose to wear fins or not. If you’re not sure you can circumnavigate the island on your own, there’s a division for relay teams of two to six participants. Come out on June 14 to this inspiring competition.
Get offshore with Fury Water Adventures June is one of the best months of the year to get offshore in Key West (but really, when isn’t?). The weather’s heating up (but not too hot), the winds of March and April have died down and a flat calm descends on the island. It’s also a time of year when the reef is particularly vibrant. There’s a lot of trips to choose from at Fury Water Adventures and we recommend the Local’s Eco Tour in June. With the newly minted Island Cat boat, you’ll head off to uncharted waters to snorkel in parts of the islands others can only dream of. You’ll also enjoy a kayak tour through the mangroves and a relaxing afternoon on a sandbar beach. It’s basically the definition of paradise. And we know that’s what you’re after on a vacation in Key West.
