What to Wear in October
Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your warm weather gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and a light shirt, but keep in mind that we can start to see an occasional cooler day in late October so it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. If you go boating for example, bring a light jacket. October can still see very warm temperatures so don't forget your sunglasses, sun screen and a hat to protect you against UV rays.
