Why Plan Winter Trips To Key West

December ushers in the festive season when the island is buzzing with great, festive activities offering idyllic reasons for visiting Key West in December. The first half of the month is very quiet on the island and the perfect time to catch a deal. December in Key West then starts to get busier the second half of the month as the world goes in search of sand and sunshine for the Christmas and New Year season. The period between Christmas and New Year are very busy in Key West so it's important to book in advance.

The Florida Keys and Key West offer an array of festive fun during the holiday season. From holiday events, lighted boat parades, and more… Key West is just the place to enjoy the festive spirit. Parrot Key Resort will also get you in a jolly mood with our lighted Christmas tree and exterior festive light decorations.

What to Wear in December

Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your summer gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, and shorts, but keep in mind that a cold front could sweep through at any time so it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. Don't forget a light jacket or blazer and jeans for a night out, along with warmer shoes for the evenings. It is still wise to bring sun screen on your trip and a hat for sunny beach days. Although it can get cold in December, you can also be surprised with temperatures in the low 80s. Nights can be chilly in December but be prepared for glorious sun shining days!
