South Florida temperatures in the winter average around 70+ degrees during the day and rarely dip into the 50s at night. Its year-round semi-tropical climate, moderate rainfall, abundant sunshine, and escape from frost, snow and ice all combine to make Florida a mini-paradise and an appealing place to live. It's the best state to enjoy boating, scuba diving, snorkeling and swimming. Also, you can enjoy your favorite outdoor sports, like golf and tennis or fishing, almost every day.
Do you crave sunshine?
It’s no secret that Florida has some of the nicest beaches in America. Ask any of your friends who have stayed and played here. And, of course, shopping at outlet centers, visiting animal habitats, sightseeing, museums, art galleries, and other cultural venues plus many state and national parks can make any day an adventure.
