March tips, weather, and events

In the Florida Keys, March comes in like a lamb and, well, it goes out that way too. Enjoy perfect sunny days, a gentle breeze, and the swaying of palms around the pools at Oceans Edge—while the North is enjoying slushy snow and freezing rain. The popular Key West Home Tour lets you see some of the area’s most beautiful architecture up close. Have some laughs and enjoy impressive skills at the Conch Blowing Contest in early March. This annual event, started in 1962, brings everyone out to honor the mollusk that has lent its meat and its shell to so much island history.
