Florida Keys New Year's Eve Fireworks Live Stream

Event Information:

The Florida Keys always attract large numbers of visitors on New Years Eve with the promise of warm weather and clear skies providing the option to see in the New Year on the beach, and watch the midnight fireworks outdoors without needing to worry about wearing a coat! One of the most spectacular displays, the Islamorada fireworks are displayed over the Atlantic Ocean and can be seen from shore.

Elsewhere on The Keys, Southernmost City on Key West celebrates New Year's Eve with a conch shell drop at Sloppy Joe's Bar, the famous and controversial "wench" drop at Schooner Wharf Bar, and red high heel drop with drag queen Sushi at Bourbon Street Pub/New Orleans House. Key West's Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square is an everyday affair that combines the natural beauty of Florida's sunsets with a carnival-type celebration.

The Florida Keys are a coral archipelago in southeast United States. They begin at the southeastern tip of the Florida peninsula, about 15 miles south of Miami, and extend in a gentle arc south-southwest and then westward to Key West, the westernmost of the inhabited islands, and on to the uninhabited Dry Tortugas. The islands lie along the Florida Straits, dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east from the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and defining one edge of Florida Bay.

The main chain of Keys islands can be traveled by motor vehicles on the Overseas Highway, a 127-mile section of U.S. 1, which runs from Key West to Fort Kent, Maine in its entirety. The highway was built parallel to the original route of the Overseas Railway, which was not rebuilt following the Labor Day hurricane of 1935. Even before the hurricane, road sections and highway bridges allowed automobile traffic to travel from Miami to Lower Matecumbe Key, where a car ferry connected with another roadway section through the Lower Keys.

The "hurricane bravado" is part of the Keys' laid-back atmosphere, as is the somewhat separatist "Conch Republic" attitude. Life is easygoing, with the major industries being tourism and fishing. Ecotourism is also part of this, with many visitors scuba diving in the area's protected waters. A new ferry now takes riders between Key West and Fort Myers, due north on the mainland, along the western edge of Florida Bay.
