Visiting the Florida Keys in February

Travel Tips, Weather, Events and Deals

Whether or not Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow this Groundhog Day, you can count on February sunshine and mostly warm temperatures in Marathon, Florida with an average high temperature of 75° F! February also welcomes a great long holiday weekend for President's Day and Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday with President's Day the following Monday, so it's a great time to rekindle romance at our romantic resort and the magnificent Butterfly Cafe, the number one restaurant in Marathon (according to TripAdvisor). Families or friends traveling together can discover our spacious two and three-bedroom Florida Keys beach houses, while couples love a romantic retreat in our more intimate Tropical Garden Guestrooms.

What to Wear in February

Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your summer gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, and shorts, but keep in mind that a cold front could sweep through at any time so it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. Don't forget a light jacket or blazer and jeans for a night out, along with warmer shoes for the evenings. It is still wise to bring sun screen on your trip and a hat for sunny beach days. Although it can get cold in February, you can also be surprised with temperatures in the low 80s, so plan accordingly. Nights can be chilly in February but be prepared for glorious sun shining days!
