Springtime in The Florida Keys
While the Florida Keys are known for their beautiful weather year-round, spring might just be one of the most appealing times to visit this little slice of paradise. Here in the Keys, our spring weather tends to be pleasant and warm with daytime temperatures typically reaching the mid-80s and nighttime cools rarely dipping below 65. Sunshine and sea breezes prevail, and there are activities sure to please any fan of the “salt life.”
The Keys have long been a popular springtime destination with vibrant scenery, exciting flavor combinations, and immersive experiences. This 112-mile chain of islands extends from Biscayne Bay to Dry Tortugas off the coast of Florida and is known for its sports fishing, laid-back island vibe, and water sports.
