Visiting the Florida Keys in January

January Florida Keys Tips, Weather, Events and Deals

January is a glorious time to visit Marathon, when you can soak up a lovely Florida Keys sunset and an island drink with warm, sunny temperatures! When much of the country is covered in snow, Marathon enjoys average high temperatures of 75° F. 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. January also welcomes two Federal holidays to embrace extra time away from the office.

What to Wear in January

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 January, you can also be surprised with temperatures in the low 80s. Nights can be chilly in January but be prepared for glorious sun shining days!
