When did you last wake up on Easter Day to views of tropical gardens or a perfectly calm ocean? Imagine starting the day with a poolside breakfast before hunting for Easter eggs among the swaying palms. Rather than working hard to bring together your own family feast in the heat of the kitchen, you can retreat to Old Town Key West for a leisurely lunch and explore the fun of the island’s nearby attractions – or just relax on the beach ready to take your pick from a range of water-based adventures.

Whether you choose a family vacation during the Easter break, or a long weekend away with your loved one, we have all the top tips for places to go and things to do during your escape at Parrot Key Resort.
Sleep Soundly in Serene Surrounds
When we wish you a good night at Parrot Key, we know that you will have exactly that. With some of the largest guestrooms and suites on the island, every guest room at Parrot Key Resort offers views of either the cool blue water or our refreshing green tropical gardens. There are king-bed or double queen-bed options, with private porches looking out on your chosen view.
For extra wriggle room to indulge the whole family, our spacious three-bedroom villas feature a master king room, double queen room and single queen room, living room, dry bar area, private porch and balconies. Look out on the calm waters of the Gulf, or take yourself to the heights of the treetops with a garden view.
Every Easter celebration should involve an egg hunt! At the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden, the Migration Mania & Great Egg Hunt takes place on Saturday, April 8th from 10am through 2pm. This family-friendly event will feature live birds, live bees, a bounce house, educational activities, crafts, and of course the all-important chocolate egg hunt.
On Easter Saturday (April 15th), boost your fitness ahead of your chocolate-eating Sunday with the Earth Day 5k Run/Walk which starts at 8am from the McCoy Indigenous Park (Atlantic Boulevard). There will be earth-friendly recyclable awards given to the top overall male and female, top masters male and female, and first and second-place runners in each age group.
Watch the spectacular setting sun over Key West over the Easter weekend at the daily Sunset Celebration on Mallory Square. Two hours before sunset, locals and visitors all gather on the square for an unforgettable cultural experience that combines magicians, jugglers, local musicians, artists and food vendors. As the sun sinks into the horizon of the Gulf of Mexico, the glowing pink and orange colors will leave a lasting memory of your Easter escape in the Florida Keys.
Water Water Everywhere…And For Everyone!
There is an activity to excite every age group in the waters surrounding Key West, whether it’s spotting Bottlenose Dolphins, discovering an undersea safari on a snorkeling trip, paddle boarding through the calm ocean, making a splash on a jet ski or touring the island on a WaveRunner. With so many packages available, families can take advantage of Parrot Key Resort discounts on a huge number of Key West water activities.
During your Easter escape, save $75 on a 25-mile WaveRunner tour around Key West which accommodates two people per WaveRunner, making it ideal for families to enjoy together. What’s more, it sets off right from our dock so you don’t need to travel far to find adventure in the water. You can also set off from the Parrot Key dock on your own kayak and paddleboard, which can be rented from our water-sports booth.
Not Just One Perfect Pool – But Four
We know how important it is to spend vacation time together poolside, which is why we have created not just one perfect pool to lounge around, but four! Each of our four sparkling pools is nestled in a tropical garden oasis and surrounded by an array of unusual, fun art sculptures that you will love. Throughout the day, we can keep you topped up with delicious snacks and island drinks from our poolside Café Blue which also serves breakfast and lunch. View the Cafe Blue Menu
