The best time to go to Florida?
We have been fortunate enough for a number of years now to visit Florida on average twice a year. As with many of us, we have certain restrictions that are put on us from outside forces. Cost is understandably a consideration, as is work and of course school holidays! ! In our house there is an equally important issue that has had to be considered for the last 9 years, and that is health. Due to a health diagnosis 9 years ago, I am unable to cope with the more humid months of the summers in Florida. We had come to like to go around May time to Florida, the weather was really hotting up and it was a perfect start to the English summer time. Not going away during the summer holidays was quite hard for our daughter at times, but then she had already been away! !
The list of considerations that became important to us have gradually meant that we tend to visit Florida these days around Easter time and luckily again in October. One thing that we have particularly become aware of and truly appreciate, is that by not going to Florida in the summer (which as I said would not suit my family for health reasons), we end up feeling like we have had a much longer English summer than we would otherwise have! ! In affect, because we go on a warm summer break at the end of March to return just as the English weather is warming nicely and then go again for 2 more weeks just when the summer has closed here, in the middle of October! !
I have to admit, I would go to Florida almost any time now, as we fall in love with the place more each time we go. You really cannot beat the perfect weather that awaits you in March/April, and of course the spring activities, which adorn the parks at this time of year, Flower Festival at Epcot and Mardi Gras at Universal for example. Then in October, it is different again, more often warmer evenings perhaps, but of course it still gets dark a little earlier and the parks and most every where you go at this time of year is of course celebrating Halloween! ! I think the October period is still one of my favourite times to visit, I really feel as if I am cheating the English summer a little, by making it last longer! ! Another serious consideration is that at neither of the times we go do we have to dodge the rain showers that do tend to visit in the summer months (though warm rain, for 20 minutes can be quite lovely at times! )
Try not to limit yourself too much when looking to visit Florida, you will not be disappointed at what is on offer most of the year round it is blue skies and hot! ! ! ! Lovely!
