Key West Travel Guide

Why You Should Visit Key West

Key West may be a small city, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in personality. Go with the flow and take part in a myriad of activities, such as exploring the many unique shops, bars, and eateries along Duval Street; watching the sunset from Mallory Square; and touring Ernest Hemingway’s home.

When You Should Visit Key West

Visit Key West from March to May for smaller crowds, more affordable hotel rates, and pleasant weather. The city is popular during the winter months when the weather is at its finest, which leads to pricier hotel stays. Big events like Pridefest Key West and Fantasy Fest Carnival are held in the summer.

Weather Conditions in Key West

Key West is beautiful year-round. During summer, the city sees average highs of 89 degrees Fahrenheit, making it ideal for a dip in the ocean. Rain isn't typical in winter, and storms are random and brief. However, thunderstorms are common in late May. Hurricane season runs mid-August to mid-October.
