Miami and Fort Lauderdale  are the hot spots in the southeastern part of the Sunshine State. Here there is a tropical monsoon climate with lower temperature fluctuations than in the north. The values ​​do not fall below 59° Fahrenheit even in winter, while the months of May to October have constantly hot maximum temperatures of 86 to 91,4° Fahrenheit. The amount of rain increases steadily during the year and reaches its peak in August. On 16 days then falls on average rain. Even heat storms are not uncommon. Mostly it rains in the afternoon, but long-lasting rainfall is rare.

Even in summer vacationers can still count on enough sunshine. From June to November, the hurricane season prevails, which can cause hurricanes. The more popular travel time are the winter months dar. Then many tourists from colder climes of the United States visit the southeast of Florida , which is reflected in the prices. A good compromise between cost and ideal holiday weather are the months of April and May. Fortunately, the water temperatures off the coast of Southeast Florida are warm enough for bathing all year round.

Weather in Central Florida

Similarly, the situation is in the center of the state. In and around the cities of Tampa, Kissimmee  and Orlando the winters are relatively cool and dry, the summers hot and humid.Unlike in the north, however, the temperature drops only 48,2° Fahrenheit in the months of December to February. Most hours of sunshine are recorded in April and May, with temperatures between June and September climbing to a record 91,4° F.

October and November mark a decline in both temperatures and rainfall. Not only the pleasant weather makes spring and autumn the ideal travel time for Central Florida. Also, the numbers of visitors who flock to the summer holiday time in the theme parks Orlando , let in these months something.

In the tropical southwest of the state, the temperatures are still at a pleasant 77° F even in winter. In addition, there is a moderate humidity.

Weather in the Everglades

Between Florida's west and east coasts stretches the fascinating landscape of the Everglades. This vast prairie landscape transforms into a network of branched waterways in the rainy season - home to alligators, crocodiles, turtles and many more animals. From October, the amount of water decreases and many animal inhabitants retire to the remaining lakes - perfect to watch them on a boat trip. The winter months also offer a chance to see Florida's famous manatees. Then the manatees seek shelter in the warm waters of the Everglades.

The most beautiful Sights and Excursion Destinations

With its warm climate and picturesque coast, the Sunshine State attracts numerous bathers year after year. For example, the city of Palm Beach: Those seeking relaxation will find Lake Worth Beach a stretch of white sandy beach under palm trees, and visitors can enjoy romantic sunsets on the pier. Off the coast of West Palm Beach, Peanut Island, is a popular destination for snorkelers thanks to the clear waters and colorful shoals of fish. Around the city of Naples bathers have the choice between beaches close to the center with all amenities and protected coastlines, where you can not only swim but also observe rare birds. Party vacationers are right at Daytona Beach, home of the annual Spring Break

Those who prefer a secluded Florida getaway can spend relaxing hours on the beach at Lovers Key State Park, near Cape Coral. This coastline was formerly only accessible by boat and promises bathing fun in untouched nature. If you are looking for a very nice photo opportunity, you should head to the lighthouse in Lighthouse Beach Park. Here you can also collect beautiful shells. Surfers are right on Florida's Cocoa Beach with its beginner-friendly waves. Already from the plane visitors can take a look at the coral reefs of the Florida Keys, a largely uninhabited archipelago. An abundance of marine animals such as barracudas, surgeon fish, rays and even sea turtles can be found here. At John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park visitors can dive to a sunken Spanish shipwreck. Special mention should be made of Venice Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, and not just because of the whiteness of the sand and the turquoise blue water: Here, bathers can not only collect shells, but also fossil shark teeth - the perfect holiday souvenir in Florida.

Zu den schönsten Landschaften, die man auf einer Reise nach Florida besuchen kann, gehören die Everglades. Dieses weitläufige Netz aus Sümpfen und Flüssen lässt sich am besten mit dem Airboat erkunden. Ein Foto mit einem Baby-Alligator gehört natürlich zum Erlebnis dazu, während man die ausgewachsenen Exemplare im brackigen Wasser der Mangroven beobachten kann. Einem anderen in Florida heimischen Tier kommen Besucher in der Kings Bay ganz nahe: Hier ist es erlaubt, mit Seekühen (Manatee) zu schnorcheln, die sich Menschen ohne Scheu nähern. Doch auch bunte Fische und Meeresschildkröten lassen sich vor der Küste bestaunen. Als beste Reisezeit, um die landschaftliche Schönheit Floridas zu genießen, gelten die Monate Dezember bis Mai. Dann ist das Wetter freundlich und die Niederschläge halten sich in Grenzen. Von August bis Oktober herrscht in Florida Hurrikan-Saison. In dieser Zeit ist mit starken Regenfällen und Stürmen zu rechnen.

The most beautiful Beaches and Natural Scenes

The proximity to scenic beaches is for many a major reason to visit or even move to Tampa. Just 35 minutes' drive from Tampa, Clearwater Beach stretches for bathers of fine white sand, clear water and excellent cleanliness. There are water sports, restaurants, boutiques and beach resorts everywhere. Of course the Clearwater Beach is not deserted. And in the spring, Clearwater's beaches turn into a frolicking Springbreak party - albeit not comparable to the crowdevents in Daytona Beach or Panama City.

For those who prefer a quieter holiday, head to the no less beautiful Indian Rocks Beach 10 kilometers to the south. Its proximity to the airport attracts visitors to Ben T. Davis Beach, Tampa's largest public beach, and dogs splash around the ocean at Brohard Paw Park & Beach. All those who not only enjoy peace and quiet, but also want to collect colorful shells, should visit the offshore island of Sand Key.

Not only for honeymooners is the small island Honeymoon Island. 4 miles of pristine sandy beach awaits guests there. In addition, the island is a paradise for nature lovers who want to observe waterfowl such as pelicans, herons and white-tailed eagles on a hike. Honeymoon Island is also ideal if you want to see dolphins in Florida. The marine mammals can be spotted well from the shore. A boat is not necessary, because the island is connected by a bridge with the mainland. It takes about 40 minutes to drive from Tampa.

At the top of the beach lovers list should be Treasure Island. Only 6,000 people live on the small island, which is known for its fine sandy beach and the pristine dune landscape. The sea is turquoise blue and very clean. Bathers often see colorful fish in the water just off the coast.

If you want to get to know Florida wildlife on a hike, head to Lettuce Lake Park, a 20-minute drive north of Tampa. The 97-acre wetland criss-crossed by the Hillsborough River is a sanctuary for waterfowl, squirrels, turtles and even alligators. Visitors explore the park comfortably on boardwalks and let their gaze wander from a lookout tower over the idyllic river landscape.

Perfect for kayaking, Hillsborough River Park, 35 minutes' drive away, offers adventurous rapids, but camping, picnics, cycling, swimming, horseback riding and hiking are also popular activities in this natural paradise. For history lovers worth a detour to the reconstructed Fort Foster - a remnant of the Indian wars of the 19th century.

Leisure Activities in Florida for the whole Family

Eine Sehenswürdigkeit, deren Besuch zu jedem Urlaub in Florida dazugehört, ist Disneyworld in Orlando, der größte Freizeitpark der Welt. Seit 1971 zieht der Vergnügungskomplex Besucher mit seinen Achterbahnen, Märchenkulissen und Cartoonfiguren wie Mickey Mouse, Donald Duckund co an.

The abundance of attractions makes it difficult to make a choice: small visitors will be astonished at the sight of Cindarella's castle, while science fiction friends at the EPCOT theme park are just right. Visible from afar is the giant sphere "Spaceship Earth" that takes visitors on a journey through the history of human communication. .

At Disney's Hollywood Studios, guests get to see spectacular stunt shows, and those who do not get enough of movies should visit Universal Studios Florida. Here guests can be abducted into the magical world of Harry Potter and save in the 3D roller coaster Transformers the world in front of robots, while the little guests go in touch with the sweet Minions. .

One of the heavyweights of American amusement parks is Sea World Florida. Dolphins and Orca whales are as much at home here as sharks, sea otters and penguins. At Dolphin Nursery, visitors will find out everything they need to know about dolphin life, and there are plenty of exciting roller coasters at Sea World.

Families visiting Fort Myers should make a detour to the Imaginarium Science Center. Thanks to its interactive exhibits, the Science Museum is also a highlight for children: in addition to exhibitions from the world of science with exciting DIY experiments, the museum also has aquariums where guests can feed fish such as stingrays. A special highlight awaits visitors near the city of Tampa. Here are rides with a faithful pirate ship, including a buccaneer dinner and pirate duels with water pistols.
