Does a Florida vacation rank high on your list of places to go? Are you ready to escape the snow and sleet of winter’s harsh punch for the warm rays of the Sunshine State? If the answer to both questions is yes, then it’s time to plan your trip. Imagine sending a selfie with the sand and beach in the background from your Florida vacation rental to your friends shoveling snow back home.

Florida is a vast and diverse state offering more than massive theme parks for visitors to enjoy. The migration of winter visitors – known as snowbirds – typically begins in mid-October and peaks in January and February until they return north in April or early May. And in Florida snowbirds are easily able to visit a variety of areas to spend time with friends in other parts of the state. Many visitors consider booking seasonal vacation rentals close to several of the top golf courses in the state like many found in Naples.

Destinations for Florida Vacations

While winter temperatures back home are freezing or even dipping below zero, Florida’s mild weather calls all to bask in the sun and rejuvenate. So leave the northern attire of boats, coats and gloves behind. A winter wardrobe in Florida consists of shorts, flip-flops and short sleeve shirts. And if you forget the sunglasses, find a pair in any number of great shops.

The Florida winter vacation lifestyle includes a morning fishing trip, an afternoon baseball Spring training game and the evening ends with watching the sunset from the beach. The state’s breathtaking natural beauty is highlighted with seashell covered beaches, trophy fishing, and protective wildlife refuges for shorebirds and more.

Visitors can be mere steps away from the best that Florida offers for those looking for spectacular island views, exciting activities and the most pristine beaches. The first step is to find the perfect place to stay from the Royal Shell selection of Florida vacation rentals.
