The Bight Before Christmas

Christmas in Key West
By the Historic Key West Vacation Rentals Team

Twas the Bight before Christmas and all through the house. Not a creature was stirring. Not even a dog slipping into a life vest to go kayaking the mangroves. Fortunately, Historic Key West Vacation Rentals has a full collection of luxury boutique vacation rentals, many of which are also pet friendly. So, let's change this Christmas story to one that's something to bark about. 

Gather on the Harbor Walk plaza at Greene and Elizabeth Streets to best see the official lighting of the 2020 Key West “Harbor Walk of Lights” . This year there'll be more lights and creative displays than last year, all continuing the “Maritime History of Key West” theme! The Key West “Harbor Walk of Lights” traditional main features will light up that night, including the Fishing Buoy Tree, a fresh pine Nautical Christmas Tree and the original Key West Lobster Trap Tree. Harbor Walk of Lights, lit nightly through New Year’s Eve, stretches along the Key West Historic Seaport and Key West Bight Marina. There's a whole list of holiday events for you and your dog to enjoy.  Now, let's choose the best pet-friendly vacation to fit your needs from our collection.
