Averages for Florida in December
Saving the best for last, we go to Miami for our Christmas Party. Instead of bundling yourself in numerous clothing shed all those in exchange for a swimsuit at Miami Beach, Florida. Many people find that December is the best time to visit Miami because it is mid-winter there. The average maximum temperature can go as high as 240 C then drop to a 170 C. There is an average of 7 hours of sunshine per day during the entire month.
Miami has a lot of fun events in December. For art enthusiasts there is the Art Basel which is touted as one of the world’s premier art exhibits. Fort Lauderdale is host to the annual Winterfest Boat Parade. There will be over 100 decorated boats that will parade in the Intracoastal Waterways. Another attraction during December is the King of Mango Strut held every last Sunday of the year. This parade pokes fun by making a parody of past events so prepare to for a lot of laughs and maybe even, shock.
Now, for some fun in the sun. One of the top beaches in Miami is the South Beach. If you want to show off some skin after a year long workout at the gym then this is the place to go. Topless bathing is even permitted here. Halouver Beach is the place to go if you want to “go all the way.” Despite its being a nude beach, there are areas provided for those who prefer to sunbathe clothed. By the way, this beach is also good for surfing. Homestead Bayfront Park and Marina is for those who want to avoid the crowds. This is the perfect place if you just want a quiet spot to get a tan while reading a good book.
Holidays in Miami don’t come cheap but it is certainly worth it. The River Park Hotel and Suites provides affordable lodging at £41.86 a night. It is located in Central Miami, perfect for your sightseeing. Also located in Central Miami is Lemington Hotel Downtown/Port of Miami at £43.44 a night. The downside to this hotel is that it doesn’t have a pool but then again who needs one when you have Miami beaches.
