Averages for Florida in January
January is the
coolest month in Florida
but to a British tourist used to cold weather it is a warm welcome. By
all means, wear your shorts during your outings as the day temperature may get
as high as 240 Celsius and as low as 180 Celsius which
usually happens at night so you might also want to bring a light jacket.
January in Key West Florida is probably the most tummy satisfying month. On January 19, 2013, the 8th Annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival will be held. The celebrities in this event are the fried clam strips, lobster bisque, stone crab claws, grilled spiny lobster, conch chowder and salad.
"Every day above earth is a good day." While in town, visit the abode of the famous author of this quote, Ernest Hemingway, at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. Located in the Old Town Key West, Hemingway spent 10 years of his writing career in this house.
The Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park is well worth a visit as you can in engage a lot of park activities: picnicking, swimming, bicycling, fishing and even scuba diving.
