"We love the 4th of July in Key West. In addition to the sponsored events, we also have plenty of other things to do in Key West. Visitors can take a glass bottom boat cruise, golf, swim with the dolphins or even take in one of our many Key West tours and still be back in time to watch the fireworks. One of our most popular tours, the Do It All, takes visitors out on an award winning mega yacht, complete with lunch prepared by your own personal chef," said Chris Gardner of Best On Key West.
