Winter, spring, summer or fall—there's no bad time to visit Florida. The warmer weather offers an escape from those northern snowstorms, and you can't beat enjoying the summer sun with your toes in the sand and a cold drink in hand. Florida may be known as the land of endless summer, but it does experience seasonal changes. As locals and frequent travelers to the Sunshine State will tell you, each offers something different to vacationing families. Fall: The annual cool-down The 90-degree temperatures break and the humidity starts to fall. This is one of the best times to play outside! So, while northerners are feeling that fall nip in the air, visitors to Central Florida are enjoying nature by camping at one of the many state parks or hiking along miles of nature trails. As temperatures drop, you can see the manatees flock to the warmer natural spring waters. Blue Spring State Park in Orange City and the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Titusville are two of the best places in Central Florida to observe these gentle animals. Fall is also a great time for festivals in Central Florida. At Walt Disney World Resort, for example, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival takes place every year from August through late November. It's a great event where guests can sample delicious food and wine from around the world, as well as enjoy a range of culinary workshops and demonstrations. Plus, Disney goes all out for Halloween, with special decorations throughout the parks and activities like Disney After Hours Boo Bash. Dress your entire family in costumes and trick-or-treat through the Magic Kingdom. If adrenaline-pumping Halloween thrills are more your style, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort is what you're seeking. Every year, they pack the parks with characters and create elaborate haunted houses inspired by some of the scariest movies and TV shows ever created. Not for the faint of heart, Halloween Horror Nights runs from early September to early November. Winter: Holiday season As fall fades to winter, there may not be snow on the ground in Florida, but the magic of the holidays is definitely in the air. Visit any theme park in Central Florida to experience one-of-a-kind holiday decorations, treats and shows. At Walt Disney World® Resort, all four theme parks are dressed up in special decorations with plenty of sparkling lights—it even snows at Cinderella Castle! One of Walt Disney's favorite traditions was the annual Candlelight Processional, currently held at Epcot. Hundreds of singers join a full orchestra and a string of celebrity guest narrators to celebrate the season with traditional Christmas Carols. At the Disney Very Merriest After Hours events, children can wear their pajamas to the Magic Kingdom to visit Mickey and his friends, eat festive holiday deserts, cheer on a special parade and end the night with Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show. At Universal Orlando Resort, you can watch Universal's Holiday Parade featuring Macy's, where larger-than-life balloons are showcased along the route. Seuss Landing at Universal's Islands of Adventure is transformed into Whoville for their Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular! Your heart might grow three sizes as you sing with the Whos and get a picture with the Grinch himself. Afterward, immerse yourself in the stories of Harry Potter as you enjoy a warm butterbeer and admire the holiday décor in Diagon Alley. Each evening ends with a light and laser show at Hogwarts Castle, complete with fireworks. Winter weather in Central Florida stays mild and pleasant. It's an ideal time to enjoy the region's natural features. If you enjoy birdwatching, Florida in the winter is a prime destination because it's on the migratory route of many species escaping the north's colder climate. With just a little effort, you can find several birding tours in the area, or just get a book on birdwatching and head out on a canoe or nature trail. Starting around November, you can also find several places to pick your own citrus fruits, including oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, lemons, and limes. There are several farms in Central Florida where you can pick your own citrus, including the Showcase of Citrus in Clermont. Spring: March of the college students Speaking of migrations, every year as the birds start heading back north, thousands and thousands of college students begin arriving for their annual spring break. The occasional cold snaps of the Florida winter give way to warmer temperatures that many people consider “perfect” weather – cool enough to be comfortable outside but warm enough to go without a jacket or sweater. If you love gardening, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is held every year from March through May. The park is decorated with every species of flower imaginable, as well as beautiful topiaries of Disney characters. There are also educational workshops and opportunities to learn from the Disney experts and guest speakers. Spring is also when Universal Orlando Resort re-creates the French Quarter and holds its annual Mardi Gras festival. Every Saturday evening from February through April, as well as select dates on Sundays and weeknights, the park comes alive with musical performances, parades, and much more, all in the spirit of New Orleans. Summer: Fun in the sun! They don't call Florida the Sunshine State for nothing! Hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches and a wide range of outdoor summertime activities make this area a huge draw for family summer vacations! Throughout Central Florida – from Lake County west of Orlando to Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, and Titusville – vacationing families arrive from all over the world to spend time together during the summer break.
