The First Day of Fall 2013
Fall begins on September 22, and there is no better place to celebrate it than Florida. In fall, the humidity decreases, the heat is temperate, and there is always something fun going on outside.
There are many planned activities each year all around Florida. Outdoor enthusiast in central and north Florida can look for one of the many festivals that occur each year. Corn mazes, harvest festivals, and hayrides amuse nature lovers young and old. Even nature lovers in warmer southern Florida can enjoy a trip to the pumpkin patch, even if it is too warm yet to wear a favorite Fall sweater.
Rainfall is low in fall in Florida. Although much of the year in Florida can be rainy, October and November are often the low points for rain. Nature lovers in Florida will be happy to leave their umbrellas at home during these months, whether to take part in a festival, go to special events at an amusement park, or just enjoy their surroundings.
Fall in Florida is a great time to take advantage of many outdoor activities that are unbearable in the summer. Nature lovers can rent boats, scuba dive, visit forts and other historical sites, or just walk along the beach and enjoy the scenery. Inland, there is also plenty of opportunity to bike, and hike. Birding is also a popular activity in the fall.
Whether you’re in north, south, east, or west Florida there’s plenty to do in Fall. From fall festivals, to birding expeditions, nature lovers should take advantage of everything the sunshine state has to offer.
