When to Go: Spring is the best time of the year to visit as the weather is the most consistent. Summer offers warm ocean water and scattered showers in the afternoon and occasionally electrical storms light up the sky. Fall is hurricane season and the high season come around in winter where hotel prices skyrocket, though restaurant prices remain fairly consistent. Florida is also about Walt Disney World and best times to visit are mid-December before the holidays as holiday decorations are up, the temperatures are down, as well as, smaller crowds and shorter lines.

Getting There: Almost every region of Florida is served by a major airport making it very convenient to touch down at exactly where you want to be in Florida.

Getting Around:

Miami provides visitors with the Metrorail system which links to the Metromover looping around the city making stops at major points of interest. The MetroBus is also available. If you are traveling outside of Miami city take the Tri-Rail system, which goes as far north as West Palm Beach. However, it can take you much longer by Tri-Rail then by car. So renting car is by far the fastest way to get outside of Miami to places like Boca Raton, Coral Gables or Palm Beach, but be careful, Miami's intersections have been reported to be among the most dangerous in the country.

Orlando is quite spread out, driving can be challenge due to the many one-way streets. So take advantage of your hotel shuttle services to the major attractions. Taxis are also readily available from the airport, hotel lobbies and main tourist areas.
