Florida in January - Best Times to Visit

Art, food, film and music; the month of January is event-packed with entertainment to suit all ages!

For family-friendly attractions, West Palm Beach’s South Florida Fair has over 200 rides and national concert performances. At Central Florida Scottish Highland Games, arts and crafts, country dancing and Border Collie sheep herding are fun for the whole family. Visitors can enjoy classic car shows, street entertainment and marketplace stalls during the Art Deco Weekend in Miami Beach.

Start January on a high in Florida. Place an enquiry today and one of our Personal Travel Experts will be in touch to bring you some options...

Partygoers can get dressed up at the Gasparilla Pirate Festival in Tampa and celebrate alongside the colourful parades into the early hours along the Tampa Riverwalk.

Art lovers can experience the galleries at Art Fort Lauderdale or view the latest indie and foreign films at Saint Augustine Film Festival. The 30A Songwriters Festival in South Walton showcases the talents of singer-songwriters from all genres, making for a fabulous evening of entertainment. Culinary explorers would love the Key West Food & Wine Festival with waterfront tastings and cooking workshops.

Although the weather is still comfortably warm, don’t forget to pack a sweater and jacket as it can be a bit chilly in the mornings and evenings (a chance of frost is even a possibility). Temperatures vary between 4-14C in Orlando whereas Daytona Beach and West Palm Beach can reach up to 21-24C.

Beat the crowds as January is the best time to take advantage of the lower visitation levels at Florida’s famous theme parks. The weather is more accommodating and the rates at the resort’s hotels are at their lowest.

Most Orlando theme parks continue to offer exciting events in January. Experience the world of arts at Walt Disney World with the Epcot International Arts Festival. Celebrate Elmo’s Birthday Celebration at SeaWorld Orlando or rock out at Universal Orlando Resort with ‘Rock the Universe’. Want even more music? Try the Real Music, Real Masters concert at Busch Gardens Tampa featuring The World’s Greatest Eagles Tribute band.

Experience the post-holiday excitement by spending the new year at the Sunshine State. To book your Florida holiday with us, fill out an enquiry form and a member of the team will be in touch with some fantastic options!
