Best Time to Visit Florida
The Sunshine State of Florida, so named for its year round appeal, with the summer months being the hottest and November to May usually being the driest. Couples seeking a more sedate Florida honeymoon or wedding may want to head there out of season as it can get particularly busy during holiday times.
Best Beaches in Florida
Whilst not primarily viewed as a beach resort, Florida does have some stunning stretches of sand.
On the east coast there’s St. Augustine (boasting 24 miles of sandy coast line), the surfers paradise of Daytona Beach, the dreamy Cocoa Beach and the hidden treasure that is Palm Beach. In the south, Fort Lauderdale (which is still referred to as the ‘Venice of America’), Miami and South Beach provide chic, contemporary hang-outs for the coolest honeymooners.
The west coast provides a sand covered playground for the rich and famous in the form of Naples beach. Marco Island, the laid back sanctuary of Sanibel, and Fort Myers provide beach bound getaways for theme park guests on the Gulf Coast.
For Activity Lovers
Theme Parks of all shapes and sizes in Orlando are just the start of things for Florida. Golf is an extremely popular pastime with many championship courses to be found. Watersports are available from many of the beach resorts, including sailing opportunities at Cocoa Beach.
Snorkelling and diving are extremely popular in the Florida Keys where active honeymoon couples can also partake in cycling or hiking in the nature reserves. Time your visit well (and have a little luck with the take-off windows) and may also be lucky enough to bag yourself an up-close and personal viewing of a space mission launch from NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
