Florida is known for it’s mildly subtropical climate and generally fantastic weather. If you like it hot, consider visiting between June-September, however, if you like it a little cooler, the best time to visit Florida may be the Spring and Autumn months.

Check out the CDC advice for the most up-to-date information and remember to check the re-entry rules for your home country. Also, make sure you have travel insurance which covers Covid-related cancellations. Mine is with Safety Wing.
