    In December, I always envy those who live in Florida and do not have to shovel snow. Maybe I should plan my vacation like that, 26 grade + sounds very good.

      Hello Stefanie,

      If you drive to Florida in December or January, you shorten the winter at home. On the other hand, this is a season, especially in the south of Florida very pleasant temperatures prevail. The further north you get, the cooler it gets.

      Best regards,

    Hello you two,
    yes in January, February it is always very bad. It will take a while until spring. It is quiet to nothing in my home town and light and sun are missing. We lived in different hotels in South Beach. Time on Ocean Drive, then in the streets behind. The beach is beautiful and the weather is mostly around the 26 grade.
    Best regards,
