Miami Weather October Averages, USA
What's the Weather like in Miami in October
Visiting Miami in the summer months means you can expect a lot of very hot and humid weather. October is no exception, with temperatures soaring and rain falling heavily. This all combines to raise the humidity levels, so prepare to feel very warm indeed!
The average daily temperature for this month is a very respectable 25°C, with highs going all the way up to 28°C and lows down to 22°C. The main heat of the sun is reduced from what you would have experienced between July and September, but summer is certainly not done yet.
You will still find 8 hours of sun a day to enjoy, all of which certainly serves to heat up the sea.
In fact, the average daily sea temperature is 28°C, so there are likely to be days when the sea is actually warmer than the air which has to be a great sensation for your skin! Make sure to take advantage of this and go for a swim.
Look out for storm warnings, however, as the tropical storms and hurricanes often pass through the area at this time of year. Rain is at its annual peak this month with an average of 234mm of water falling, resulting in around 16 wet days. That's half the month! If you are planning to do a lot of outdoor activities, you will need to keep an eye on the weather forecast to avoid getting rained on.
This part of the USA is a very popular destination throughout the summer, so even in spite of the threat of stormy weather, you can expect the city to be busy with visitors.
Hotels for Miami in October
When we say you can stay at an EPIC Hotel, we don't mean in the sense of the superlative. Judging by customer reviews, however, this hotel does impress especially if you can put up the extra cash to join the club section. The rewards are definitely worth it.
Mayfair Hotel & Spa
Over in Coconut Grove you will find the Mayfair Hotel & Spa, an older hotel which is full of character. They offer a rooftop lounge with views across the city, and an outdoor area with tropical plants and a great atmosphere. You can also dine at their restaurant, Spartico.
The Vagabond Hotel
The October heat may just lead you to spend a lot of time in the pool at The Vagabond Hotel. Here you will find a '50s and '60s style décor along with an intimate vibe, and personal care from the guest services team. It's a boutique hotel right on Biscayne Bay.
Restaurants and Bars for Miami in October
If you want to head to a nightclub where you can see celebrity guests, try STORY they have had performances from the likes of Flo Rida and Steve Aoki in the past. The VIP table experience is recommended however, as you are not likely to get a table close to the dancefloor otherwise.
Bongos Cuban Cafe
There is a branch of Bongos Cuban Café, the nightclub and restaurant owned by Gloria Estefan, here in South Beach. Make sure that you check it out as both the food and the atmosphere are something not to be missed. Even Cubans come here!
El Pollo Inka
For seafood with South American flavours, check out El Pollo Inka. The Peruvian menu has a lot to offer, and is served beautifully. You can expect high-quality service, good-looking dishes, and interesting flavours, including of course plenty of Ceviche.

Lock & Load
If the October humidity gets you all worked up, you can blow off some steam at the Lock & Loadshooting range. This is a premium experience that offers something that you can't get just anywhere the chance to try shooting a machine gun. You choose your gun and your ammo, then get shooting.
For something really different from the norm, you have to try FLYBOARD305. The flyboard is a jetpack that you attach to your feet and use to blast off above the water as you fly around behind a boat. If you've ever dreamed of being Iron Man, now's your chance!
