Other Considerations

  1. Weather: June to November is hurricane season. Be sure to watch weather forecasts. The temperature is quite moderate in this area but be sure to bring a light jacket or sweater for evenings. The breeze can be quite chilly. Be prepared for rain on your outings. Rain is how this state keeps its lush surroundings looking green and beautiful. 
  2. Roads: Pulling an RV is tough enough as it is. There is nothing worse that driving your rig on roads that are busted up. The roads in Florida are quite nice. They are well kept and RV friendly. There are services available frequently while traveling on the highways and byways. Florida is definitely a friend to RV travelers. 
  3. Covid update: Some public spaces are participating in social distancing and most require the use of a mask when entering any building or occupied area. If you are coming from a state with strict regulations, you may find that Florida is a bit more laid back on their requirements. Just be aware and make your plans accordingly. Take advantage of the natural adventures that this wonderful place has to offer. Stick to beaches, parks, and garden retreats.
