Miami Weather November Averages, USA
What's the Weather Like in Miami in November
November really signals the end of the summer and the beginning of winter in Miami. The average daily temperature drops to 23°C, which may come as a shock to those who have only visited during the peak months!
The highs go up to 26°C still though, while the lows only fall as far as 19°C the first time since April that you are more than likely to see a temperature below 20°C. Still, compared to European winters, this is positively mild and lovely.
The great news is that the temperatures remain higher here than they are in Disney hotspot Orlando, up the coast. That makes this the warmest part of Florida to come to if you are all about spending some time in the sun.
The average sea temperature comes down to 26°C, which does at least mean that you can still swim comfortably without feeling cold. In fact, you may feel warmer in the water than out of it!
The average daily hours of sunshine drop to 7 a day, which contributes to the cooling of the area.
The great news is that the rainfall really drops off in this month as well. From 234mm falling in October, now we will see only around 71mm falling, over an average of 10 days. This means you can conceivably spend a week in Miami without getting wet at all unless you count swimming, of course!
Take a look at the weather forecast daily before you head out, as there may be some times this month when you need to take a jumper out with you just in case. This especially applies if you are going to be moving at speed, for example on an airboat tour.
There is a lower risk of stormy weather and high winds at this time of year as the weather begins to settle down, but remain wary all the same.
Hotels for Miami in November
If you want to find a home away from home, try the Habitat Residence. Here you will find great facilities and homely condo-rooms, all close to South Beach and a number of other attractions. A very short walk away is also a supermarket just in case you need to pick up some essentials.
Doubletree by Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay
The Doubletree by Hilton Grand Hotel Biscayne Bay is a bit of a mouthful, but this hotel is a good standard choice and has views out over the beautiful waters. It also has impressive architecture, and you will be able to recognise it from some distance away.
Fortune House Hotel
November is definitely the time of year to invest in a luxury stay, and the Fortune House Hotel is a good choice if you want to pamper yourself. These luxury apartment suites offer short and extended stays, and also overlook the bay. Malls, restaurants, and the beach are all very close by.
Restaurants and Bars for Miami in November
If you are looking for something fancy, try Truluck's Restaurant. The dishes are pricey, but represent fine seafood and steakhouse dining. They actually do have some more budget-friendly options as well, such as all-you-can-eat crabs on certain days of the week. There is a business casual dress code, however.
Live music awaits you as you dine in an unusual location: Tamarina is located in the lobby of an office building. Don't let that put you off, as this is certainly an upscale experience. Italian cuisine is served here via Mediterranean influences. You can eat al fresco if the weather allows.
Another place you really can't go wrong with is Pizzarium. Describing themselves as a taste of Rome, this pizza and Italian food place serves by the slice from the counter. You can also order a delivery or pick up to take away. This is a great option for lunch or for when you just want to head back to your room and relax.
Smith and Wollensky
When you think of dining in Miami the beachside cafe probably springs to mind, and you'll find all the stereotypes at Smith and Wollensky on South Beach. Situated by the waterfront, you can sample the menu's delights as you look over the city and watch the ships cruise in and out of the port. If the weather's at all chilly, there are abundant indoor dining places too.
For drinks and dancing in the evening, Blackbird Ordinary will be right up your street. Don't let the unusual name put you off: this late bar is conveniently located in the centre of town and is a great place for drinks, dancing and socialising in a casual-but-contemporary setting.
Things to Do in Miami in November
Perez Art Museum
November might be a good time to visit museums and art galleries, as you do not have the heat of the summer to distract you and keep you on the beach! The Pérez Art Museum, also known as PAMM, offers exhibitions of 20th and 21st century art. The building itself is also art, having been designed with sustainability in mind by Herzog and de Meuron.
Miami Children's Museum
The Miami Children's Museum is a great option if you are in the area for a family holiday. Children will be truly entertained here, and may also learn a lot. This is a great way to pass the day without having to keep the children occupied.
You can also try shopping, perhaps at The Falls. With high end and middle stores both represented, there are plenty of brands to explore: names like Aeropostale, Apple, Macy's, and Pandora offer a broad range of shopping choices.
Barnacle Historic State Park
Located away from the centre of Miami, the opulent neighbourhood of Coconut Grove retains its art deco glamour and you should take the time to visit here during your trip. The Barnacle Historic State Park is to be found within the area and makes a brilliant way to spend a quiet afternoon and offers you a feel for the heritage of Miami and Florida.
