Now that you have chosen your destination, picked out the RentTheKeys vacation home of your dreams, and have started to narrow down some of the activities you want to participate in during your stay, it is time to set the dates in concrete. Vacations are flexible, they don’t all have to be taken during the summer months and this guide to the best times to visit the Florida Keys will further help to ensure your escape to the Keys is as close to perfect as it can be!

Winter Rules to Visit the Florida Keys

Anyone who lives in a particularly wintry climate knows that the season seems to never end and a visit to the Keys will bring the joys of eternal summer. The sun shines more in the winter months, the temperatures remain warm enough to swim in most places, and your flip flops and tee shirts will be the heaviest layer of clothing you will need! Of course, the downside is that winter is one of the most popular times for out of state visitors, so you must expect some crowds.

The Promise of Spring

Spring is such a beautiful time of year and for college students and the younger crowds it is when they visit most. Those who are traveling to the Keys in the spring must be ready for large crowds of excited young adults, loud music, and a party atmosphere that is as eternal as summer, in most places. The beauty of spring, however, can be found in the soft air as the more extreme heat of summer has not yet begun and spring events such as the Sand Sculpting Festival held the first week of May on Siesta Key Public Beach takes place, adding interest to an already fascinating getaway!

What Needs to Be Said About Summer?

Most family vacations take place in the summer months, and the Keys provide a beautiful place to land during that sultry season as well. Spending time at the beach helps keep you cool on the hottest days and exploring indoor activities on rainy days never stops being fun! It does tend to rain more in the summer, but just be patient, after a few minutes or so, the skies will be sunny again.

Fall Is the Winner

For those who don’t like crowds, fall may be the prime time for a Florida Keys vacation. Still warm enough to enjoy white sand beaches and swimming pools in your RentTheKeys escapes, the crowds dwindle, reducing long lines and clearing out those beaches giving guests more time to play and explore and less time having to battle the masses for a place on the sand!
