Default Key West Races

i know the year just started but i have been wanting to go to this race for a while. How far in advance for hotels, best place to stay to see the action, are the races still visibile by land or do people rent boats?

thanks

We made it for the first time last year and LOVED IT.......Already looking for places and finding some are already booked. Some friends tried renting the same house they were in before leaving KW and the house was already rented for that week in 2019!

Stay walking distance from Mallory square and you'll be in the thick of everything!

All you need is a Scooter and you can stay just about anywhere.
And a 6pack fits right between your feet

Im assuming the boats are slipped anywhere you can get a spot? To stay on the boat or get a room? Hmmm

We book the following year right after the current year's races are over. We always watch from the seawall. Cheap food and drinks and plenty of porta-potties. This past year we rented bikes and rode them to each day's races.

House booked, airfare booked, and scooter rental booked!!

Seems like earlier the better on finding a place! Buddy of mine booked two houses (side by side) yesterday for our group. He said in the last week several places he was looking at had been booked. This will be our first time to KW and I'm already excited!!

We booked the southern most point about a month before this year (our first year ever). It is the opposite end of the race area but personally I like that area better. That is an individual choice though.

Race can be seen by land or water, we really enjoyed them by land on the Cg base. Great spot, cheap drinks, and fun times.
