Winter is here and what does that mean for South Florida? Whilst most states are preparing for freezing cold weather, snow storms, icy roads, heavy winter jackets and snow boots, in sunny South Florida, we are doing things a little differently. Though we definitely feel for those states, we are embracing the change of season. There is a coolness in the air, the Snowbirds are in town, you may even see someone wearing a light jacket and the beaches are packed. South Florida in Winter is the perfect time for many fun outdoor activities, the best festivals, biggest concerts and sporting fun, especially in Miami. Planning to come visit Florida? Now is the time!
