Weather

A Floridian climate more mild wood, than Wildwood

Known as the Sunshine State, Florida benefits from a subtropical climate. Hot, humid summers with highs often reaching 100°F, with its fair share of rain and a smattering of tropical storms. The winters are long and dry, when the temperature drops to a comfortable 70-80°F. The dry season starts around late October and runs right through to April. It's peak season for Wildwood vacation rentals, and they can get snapped up ('scuse the pun) far in advance by folks keen to escape the northern winter chills, so it's advisable to book early for the best choice.
