May tips, weather, and events

As the weather heats up, so does Key West. The month of May is merry with the Bourbon, Blues, and BBQ festival, a multiday event with live music, delectable barbecue, and cocktail and bartending competitions. Oceans Edge is the perfect place to stay during events like these: our shuttle whisks you to downtown Key West and brings you back to our quiet haven on Stock Island. So, enjoy the happenings and then return for a relaxing evening in your luxurious accommodations.
