Florida in August - Best Times to Visit

The sweltering heat in August pushes many visitors to activities such as museums, aquariums and water parks.

Educational and cool, Miami’s Phillip and Patricia Frost of Museum of Science has a mind-blowing planetarium. The Frost Planetarium uses 8K projection with surround sound and a vast dome screen to take you on a remarkable visual journey through space. The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Peterburg houses one the largest collection of the surrealist’s masterpieces. The building is surrounded by a beautiful waterfront and the museum’s garden labyrinth has a fantastic setting for photographs. For something low-key and relaxed, explore the peaceful Japanese gardens in Delray Beach at the Morikami Museum.

Florida aquariums appeal to all ages with serene underwater surroundings of marine species. The Florida Aquarium in Tampa, is ranked as one of the best in the country, exhibiting river otters, alligators, sea turtles, stingrays, sea dragons, reef fish, eels, sharks and many more. At Sea Life Orlando, the aquarium features many endangered species and rescued creatures with the main highlight being the stunning 360-degree underwater tunnel. The Miami Seaquarium allows a unique encounter where you can go on an underwater scuba walking journey through a 300,000 gallon topical reef.

Take advantage of Florida’s water parks in August as it’s definitely the best way to cool off! Legoland’s Water Park has a Joker Soaker of three levels of slides and a 300-gallon water bucket. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon boasts one of the world’s largest surfing lagoons with massive waves of up to six feet high. Adventure Island in Tampa has popular tube rides and waterslides including their famous Runaway Rapids.

August in Florida is the hottest month of the year. The average high during the day reaches 33C with the evening low at 23C. It is advisable not to spend long durations outdoors, if so wear plenty of sunscreen and use an umbrella for shade. Remember it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. You will almost certainly run into heavy rain and thundershowers when you visit as Florida’s proximity to the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico means exposure to tropical storms and hurricanes.

If the heat doesn’t bother you there are still some fantastic festivals during August. The Harvest Grape Stomping Festival in Clermont offers a unique experience, Key West hosts their annual Lobsterfest and Jacksonville has their Caribbean Carnival.
