Visiting Key West In November
While the rest of the northern hemisphere braces itself for the start of a long, cold winter, November in the Florida Keys offers two great travel periods to usher in a long weekend or a week-long family vacation. Veteran's Day takes place November 11th, creating the perfect opportunity to enjoy an extended weekend break, and Thanksgiving is an ideal time for families to celebrate together under the warmth of a Florida Keys sunshine. If it's a budget vacation you are after, look out for our discounted rates during off peak periods in November which offer fantastic savings, particularly on weekdays.
A number of events in November create an exciting atmosphere on the island, including the Key West World Championship Races which sees high-speed offshore powerboats race in Key West Harbor and surrounding waters. Key West has a longstanding tradition in this annual challenge, which is known internationally as the Indianapolis 500 of powerboat racing. Other exciting November events include the Key West Film Festival, and Art! Key West.
Key West Weather in November
In the autumn, cold fronts can bring chilly weather to Key West but the average high temperature in November is 80° F! You will still find sun bathers at beaches and pools with mostly sunny days and diminishing chances of rain as we move into the fall months. November is a more tranquil month to visit Key West (with the exception of Thanksgiving week) and the weather is usually glorious. The official hurricane season ends on November 30th.

What to Wear in November
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, shorts and a warm shirt, 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 ensemble when needed. Don't forget a light jacket or blazer and jeans for a night out, along with warmer shoes for the evenings. Nights can be chilly in November but be prepared for glorious sun shining days!
