January in Key West

January is a glorious time to visit Key West when you can soak up a lovely Florida Keys sunset and an island drink with warm, sunny temperatures! When much of the country is covered in snow, Key West enjoys average highs of 75° F. January also welcomes some of the best events of the year and two Federal holidays to embrace extra time away from the office. Major events in January include the Key West Literary Seminar, Florida Keys Seafood Festival, Key West Half Marathon, Quantum Key West Race Week, the Key West Classic Regatta, and the Key West Food and Wine Festival.

Key West- What to Wear in January

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 January, you can also be surprised with temperatures in the low 80s. Nights can be chilly in January but be prepared for glorious sun shining days!
