If you’re looking for a break that includes plenty of sun, warmth, and unlimited fun, you’ll want to make sure you consider Florida. Planning the ultimate vacation not only includes your final destination, what you’ll do there, or where you plan to stay, but also the time of year you plan your retreat. Every popular vacation destination has its best times to visit, including Orlando.
Spring & Summer
Spring Break, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, and other celebrations abound in the spring months. Water and air temperatures begin to warm and outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and enjoying the beautiful Florida weather increase. Crowds come to fill the restaurants, attractions, and spring and summertime activities. By summer, the heat, humidity, and the tourist season are in full swing. Parks and attractions are all open and running a regular season schedule with higher prices. Orlando Restaurant Week, Fourth of July celebrations, and all the summer fun you can think of is at your fingertips. The summer fun comes with significant price increases for airfare, rentals, accommodations, and even restaurants.
Fall is One of the Best Times to Visit Orlando
There’s a dip in tourism in the fall months, so tourist attractions are easier to get into and navigate while the weather remains a little warmer. Airfare, admissions, accommodations, and attractions that come at a premium during the spring and summer are a little more budget-friendly in the fall. You’ll have to contend with lingering heat and humidity, too. Note that prices rise again around Thanksgiving in anticipation of holiday tourism.
The winter months are a great time to visit the warm, sunny locale of Orlando. Escape the cold and visit when the heat and humidity of summer have passed, and the tourist season has backed off a bit. December boasts many holiday celebrations, at theme parks as well as around town. The cooler, drier climate makes it possible for unlimited outdoor fun like hiking, biking, and more. Schedule a visit that doesn’t include holiday celebrations and enjoy more time at popular attractions. Orlando Magic basketball games, Mardi Gras celebrations, the Citrus Bowl, and the Downtown Food & Wine Fest are a few other winter events you don’t want to miss. Winter pricing that doesn’t include a major holiday or tourist event also results in lower airfare, rental fees, and other costs associated with your trip. Beware, many of the fun and exciting summer venues may be running on limited hours or be closed for the season.
