Visiting Key West in September

Tips, Weather, Events and Deals

Still basking under the rays of the Florida sunshine, September is often celebrated as one of the best months of the year in which to enjoy a Key West vacation. Many crowds have headed home following the long summer break and the start of school, and this makes way for couples to enjoy a tranquil retreat in a tropical paradise. September is a peaceful month in the Keys, yet still offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the wide range of marine activities and the cultural hot spots throughout Key West. With Labor Day on September 3, why not take advantage of the long weekend with an indulgent stay at our oceanfront resort?
