Sandy beaches, Walt Disney World Resort, and crystal clear waters are just some of the possible reasons you may be excited to travel to Fort Lauderdale. Florida boasts excellent weather and plenty of activities year-round. If you want to skip over the tourist-filled streets and attractions, plan your holiday between the months of December – April. The school term is in session, and while it is technically winter, you get comfortable temperatures ranging from 10 – 27 degrees Celsius at this time of year. Also, summer and fall are the periods of heavy rainfall and hurricanes. So, if you visit from June – November, pack an umbrella and rain coat.
