Welcome To Paradise!

Ahhhh….the Florida Keys & Key West! Connected by 43 bridges, America’s southernmost paradise begins just south of Miami in Key Largo and then hopscotches over the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico until you hit to the end of the road in Key West. We have five fascinating destinations, here, starting with Key Largo and Islamorada in the Upper Keys, Marathon which is in the heart of the Middle Keys, Big Pine in the Lower Keys and last but not least, Key West, also known as the southernmost city in the continental US. Each area has its own distinctive vibe and personality but all embrace our official island philosophy of “One Human Family”  which reflects our respect for diversity and inclusion of all people.

And while all of these magical Keys are world renowned for some of the best fishing, diving, boating and water sports on the planet, our islands are also brimming with unique shops, artists’ studios, galleries, museums and historical attractions, along with highly acclaimed theatrical and musical performances.

Click on any one of the links you find here and we’ll give you your keys to paradise so that you can truly  “Live It Like A Local!”

Now – July Christopher Peterson’s Eyecons

Key West: Often compared to the legendary Jim Baily, master of impersonations, Christopher Peterson is, without a doubt, one of North America’s foremost female impersonators – both visually and vocally. His hit show, EYECONS, is one of the hottest tickets in town and you’ll be totally amazed by the way he transforms himself into more than a dozen famous women right before your very eyes with the help of his “magic closet.” Catch him in the Crystal Room Cabaret at La Te Da, 1125 Duval St., Key West. Tickets and info: 305-296-6706; lateda.com.

 

 

Now – July Randy Roberts Live!

Key West: Highly acclaimed entertainer, Randy Roberts shines in this live, multi-media tribute to some of the world’s most beloved performers. His uncanny impersonations of Cher, Better Midler and Judy Garland are spot-on and he’ll have you rolling in the aisles when he performs a titillating strip tease as the bawdy Gypsy Lee Rose. But nothing compares to Roberts’ own self-created character which can only be described as Ann-Margaret, Liza Minnelli and Joan Rivers all rolled into one powerhouse performer. Catch this amazing show at La Te Da’s Crystal Room Cabaret, 1125 Duval St., Key West. Tickets and info: 305-296-6706; lateda.com.
