2016 Key West Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day Feast
Thanksgiving Day Feast

I love the Thanksgiving holiday. When sharing favorites like turkey and pumpkin pie with family and close friends, what’s not to love? Especially for foodies! If you are visiting Key West this Turkey Day, have no fear! You will still be able to enjoy these holiday favorites at several different restaurants. Or, you can always start a new tradition and enjoy a local seafood dish instead.
