South Florida Weather

First of all, it’s a little warmer in the south of Florida. This is important to someone like me from Canada. In January, I want warm. Miami averages 5 degrees warmer than Orlando. This is good.

And the beaches! Miles and miles of gorgeous beaches.

Top Travel Attractions, Miami (Florida) - Travel Guide

West Palm Beach Family Resorts

Let’s start with West Palm Beach. It has ideal weather during the winter, warm and mostly dry with an average high of 75 – 82 degrees F (24 – 28 C). Sounds perfect to me! From May to October, it is hotter, humid with afternoon thunderstorms more than half of the time.

There is a variety of types of accommodations available. A good choice is the Homewood Suites. The suites include a kitchen for those times you wish to stay in, and they also have a breakfast buffet and dinner if you don’t want to cook. You can find more choices of accommodations here: Palm Beach Family Resorts and Vacation Accommodation.

After a few days at the beach, you may like to take in some “kid friendly” activities such as the Lion Country Safari or the Palm Beach Zoo.

Fort Lauderdale Family Resorts, South Florida

Another place to go to for your south Florida family resort is Fort Lauderdale with its seven miles of beaches! There are many resorts to choose from right along the beach such as the Westin Beach Resort and Spa. See the best family resorts and accommodation in Fort Lauderdale.

A unique feature of Fort Lauderdale is all the waterways and canals throughout. This has to be seen to be believed. Spend a couple hours or the day touring the place on a water taxi, which is like a trolley-on-the-water. You can get on and off wherever you like for as long as you like, or stay on the boat and listen to the tour guide. It’s not to be missed.

It it's a rainy day, or even it it's not, the kids could burn off some energy at the Funderdome.



South Florida Family Science Adventures

Or a favorite with the kids is the interactive hands-on Museum of Discovery and Science. The adults who “have to” take the kids have just as much fun. It's a good choice for the day. 

Miami Family Resorts, South Florida

Miami is just a bit further south down the coast – and the beaches continue. An ideal south Florida vacation spot is the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort . Here are more choices of accommodations. See the top Miami Resorts.

It’s always worth going to the Miami Seaquarium - dolphins, sea lions, turtles and killer whales - you can even go swimming with the dolphins! How cool is that? Or go see the parrots, lemurs, orangutans and more at Jungle Island. See more on these attractions and family places to stay on our Miami Vacation Spots page.

Jungle Island



Everglades South Florida family Adventure

How to Do Florida: The Everglades by Airboat

Whatever else you do when you’re at your south Florida family resort, don’t miss the Everglades National Park.

There are hiking and canoe trails, ranger guided programs, birdwatching – even enjoy a few days camping there. There’s nothing like it. No trip to South Florida would be complete without a trip to the Everglades.

You will not be disappointed if you plan your holiday at a South Florida family resort – except maybe you'll find your holiday is just too short! But that’s ok, you can always come back, right?
