Best Time to Visit

Key West weather gives its winter season a warm temperature and a low chance of rain, which is why it is also the busiest period in terms of crowds and the priciest with regard to accommodation. Summer and fall on the other hand are mostly avoided by tourists because of the frequent rain, high humidity and the fact that they coincide with the hurricane season, but they also see the best bargains for hotel prices and the best time to visit the local beaches. A middle ground is represented by the months that go from March to May, since they feature good price deals on accommodation and local attractions as well as stable weather conditions.
