5 Reasons to Fall for the Florida Keys This Autumn
Summer never really ends in the Florida Keys, with a year-round tropical temperatures and cool coastal colors. But unlike the summer months, fall here is an oasis of calm – making it the perfect time to escape on a romantic break or seniors’ getaway.
Here are just a few little things that we – and our guests – love about fall in Marathon.
1. Peace and tranquility
The busy family season is over and the children have returned to school, leaving a sense of calm washing over the Keys. Savor the luxury of quiet time as you soak up the autumn sun away from the crowds and noise.
Unwind on our 2.5-acre sandy beach, relax beside the water at our tropical lagoon-style pool, and enjoy a delicious frozen cocktail (or two!) as you watch the golden sunset from the tiki bar. A million miles away has never felt so close.
2. Taste the Keys
If you love the taste of delicious fresh crab, you’re in luck—fall sees the start of the Keys’ Stone Crab Craw season. As well as the annual eating contest here in Marathon, some of your favorite Florida Keys restaurants will be featuring the sweet and succulent claws on their menus, served in melted butter or perhaps with a tangy mustard sauce.
At Butterfly Café, we serve the freshest fish, tropical fruits and local vegetables year-round, making it a total food lover’s paradise.
3. Long weekends in paradise
The summer months may be behind us, but there’s still lots to celebrate in fall. Look forward to the many long weekends on the horizon, from Columbus Day on October 14th and Veteran’s Day on November 11th to Thanksgiving on November 28th – the perfect excuse for an extended stay in laid-back Florida Keys luxury!
