With such an enormous array of activities and excursions for you to enjoy in Florida, you can be assured that you will never run out of things to do.

When to go

A trip to Florida depends as much upon what you wish to do there as it does on the weather. However, it is worth noting that, due to its almost tropical climate, Florida has two distinct seasons. 

In Florida the dry season falls in winter, lasting roughly from November through to April. This is a particularly good time to visit if you are intending to canoe, hike and trek, exploring Florida's diverse environment in temperatures topping 20°C but with less humidity and rain than the summer months. With this in mind, this time is generally regarded as peak season. 

The wet season falls in the summer months of May through to October, when visitors can expect almost daily deluges of rain accompanied by high temperatures and humidity. Also, hurricane season is at its peak in September. 

Ultimately, many of the main attractions in Florida are open all year round, with how busy they are more dependent on school holidays than the weather.
