Captivating Things To Do During The Summer In Central Florida | 2022

Summer in Central Florida never seems to really go away. While some simply aren’t interested in our hot and humid temperatures from May-ish to September-ish, we truly believe in taking advantage of this oasis we find ourselves in.

The average temperatures during the summer months will range from the high 80’s and, down to the mid 70’s on some of our cooler days. As most of us know, Florida is notorious for those summer afternoon showers.

So, be sure to grab your umbrella, put on a pair of shorts, and pack up your sense of adventure. In this article we’ll be going over some of the best ways to embrace the Florida heat and have a ton of fun while you’re doing it.

Obviously, there are a ton of fantastic escapades that await throughout Central Florida, but you cannot skip over a trip to Winter Park. Before you head out to theme park row, make sure to take a stroll down Park Ave. Stop for ice cream at one of our multiple ice cream parlors, or do a bit of light shopping and grab lunch at one of our world class restaurants.
