Visiting the Florida Keys in October

Travel Tips, Weather, Events and Deals

During October in Marathon, you can enjoy a tranquil Columbus Day weekend escape or a romantic fall retreat.

Friends traveling together can discover our spacious two and three-bedroom Florida Keys beach houses, while couples love our intimate and comfortable Tropical Garden Guestrooms. Discover our senior offer which is also available in October.

Marathon Weather in October

October cools down a little in Florida with an average high temperature of 84° F. You will still find sun bathers at beaches and pools with mostly sunny days and diminishing chances of rain as we move into the fall months. October is a more tranquil month to visit Marathon and the weather is usually glorious. The official hurricane season ends on November 30th but active storm activity usually dies down by October 15th.

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.
