Hmm, bad time to be thinking about going to Miami. The Dolphins will be in Buffalo on December 9th :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Once again… …the weather question! As always, Florida is the only place you can turn on three different weather forecasts and they can all be wrong. Well, at least in December that may not be the case; you won’t have the rain possibilities of spring-fall. In any case, you can try to predict our weather, but it’s hard to do. Last winter was amazing. On New Years we were at Epcot and I was in dress pants and a long sleeve dress shirt and was hot (when you factor in the crowd levels). We had a really warm winter. But, we can get down to the upper 20’s to mid 30’s in December. I remember that happening a few years ago, and I thought I was gonna die!
As for pools, most of our pools in Florida are heated. We like the water temps around mid-80’s. My family from up north would consider that bath water! But hey! When you’re used to 80-90 degree weather 3/4 the year, we don’t want the water to be any colder than that!!!
Now, going back to the Miami comment. Miami is my favorite city in Florida, but it is more adult oriented. In December, I don’t think there are many people crazy enough to jump in the Atlantic Ocean, but I guess that depends on where you are from. Vero Beach would be more family oriented (and I take you are bringing kids as you have the Family Suite reserved at the AS resort). If you are looking for culture and history, Miami rocks. They have lots of great bars and clubs and put Tampa (20 minutes from me) to shame. I’m not trying to sway your travel itinerary, but heading towards the ocean in December isn’t something I would do! Unless, of course, it was to party! Or, to visit friends/family.
