BEACH FORECAST: High 77, low 67
PERFECT FOR: Nightlife-loving couples and families with active, older kids

WHY GO: Despite being within walking distance of Duval Street, the city’s main drag, the Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa has Gulf-view rooms and a tucked-away feel. The resort’s Jala Spa is a must for rejuvenating treatments, including hot stone massage.
