Here Are 9 Spots In Florida You Must Explore This Winter

We may not have snow in Florida, but we have plenty of holiday cheer. We make our own winter wonderlands, with lots of lights, and maybe even a snowman made of sand. Heck, we even have our very own winter snow park near Tampa, so things are about to get real. Floridians know the scene outside their windows isn’t what matters, it’s the joy that is shared with family and friends. If you know anyone who still needs some convincing that Florida is a great place to explore during the winter months, these gorgeous parks and displays will get them in the holiday spirit right away. Take a look at the best things to do in winter in Florida.

Things To Do In Winter In Florida

November 08, 2020

Can I ride the Polar Express in Florida?

Beyond all of the fun outdoor activities in Florida that you can participate in that we mentioned above, there is another winter adventure that is worth checking out—the Polar Express! The North Pole Express hosts an incredible holiday adventure that the entire family can take part in. Just purchase tickets quickly because they tend to sell out very fast.

What was the biggest snowfall in Florida?

Wintertime in Florida is different from many other parts of the country. While other states experience heavy winter conditions and tons of snowfall, Florida doesn’t see too much. In fact, the biggest snowfall ever to hit Florida was back in March of 1954 when four inches of snow accumulated in Milton.

Where can I go snow tubing in Florida?

While the answer to this question would’ve been a shrug of the shoulders just a few years ago, there is soon going to be a brand new snow tubing park to open in Tampa, Florida. This man-made wonder is easily going to be one of the most unique things to do in winter in Florida, and will likely draw huge crowds. Check out Snowcat Ridge for more information about this winter wonderland.
