Florida — Travel Tips

  • Rent a car at the airport to enjoy maximum travel flexibility, but book well in advance to secure good rates and the car of your dreams
  • Consider a visit in the shoulder seasons of November or May, when the peak tourism wave has passed and conditions are still prime
  • Be prepared for the oppressive wall of heat and humidity all year round, especially at inland spots like Orlando
  • Consider the Panhandle region of Florida for a beach holiday as the scene is noticeably less touristy, prices are cheaper, and the beaches just as lovely
