Visiting Key West In October

If a quieter vacation is what you are after, early through mid October before the festival kicks off is a tranquil time of year in Key West.

Seniors will love making the most of our senior offer which is available throughout the year.

Key West Weather in October

October cools down a little with an average high temperature of 84° 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. October is a more tranquil month to visit Key West and the weather is usually glorious. The official hurricane season ends on November 30th but active storm activity usually dies down by October 15th. No named hurricanes or tropical storms affected the Florida Keys in 2013 or 2014. Parrot Key Resort offers a hurricane clause to protect our guests during this period so please inquire within our call center.

What to Wear in October

Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your warm weather gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and a light 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 wardrobe when needed. If you go boating for example, bring a light jacket. October can still see very warm temperatures so don't forget your sunglasses, sun screen and a hat to protect you against UV rays. For your convenience, a Walgreens store is located adjacent to Parrot Key Resort if you forget any essentials.
