If you’re planning a trip to Orlando early this year, February is one of the best times you can visit. You’ll avoid the peak season rush while also enjoying ideal weather and plenty of seasonal festivities. Still undecided? Check out our 7 reasons why you should visit Orlando this February.
1. Great Weather
Orlando’s average temperature in February is 74 degrees Fahrenheit (23 C) with clear skies. This mild weather provides the perfect respite from winter chills while also staying warm enough for visits to waterparks and beaches along Florida’s coast.
2. Holiday Rush is Over
If battling traffic and long lines at the theme parks isn’t your thing, then February is the best time to visit Orlando. The holiday season and southern hemisphere summer vacation rush are over, which means shorter wait times for restaurants, rides, and other attractions.
3. Extend Vacation with Presidents’ Day
Many schools and businesses close for Presidents’ Day, making it easy to extend your vacation in Florida. Enjoy extra time at the theme parks or plan a day trip to the Space Coast or other nearby Central Florida cities. As an added bonus, many places offer holiday discounts and other promotions.
4. Art and Music Festivals
February brings many fun festivals to Orlando. At Universal Orlando Resort, catch the annual Mardi Gras festival complete with its own concert series. You’ll also enjoy the Epcot International Festival of the Arts that features exhibits with collections from Disney artists, workshops, and specialty dining options.
5. Romantic Activities
February is Creative Romance Month and Orlando has plenty of options for romantic activities. From theme parks to lounges and bars, there’s lots of ways to plan the perfect creative date. Take advantage of the great weather and enjoy a hot air balloon ride or an outdoor movie at the Leu Gardens.
6. Beat Spring Break Crowds
During March and April, Orlando is busy with Spring Break traffic. Visit now during February and avoid the chaos. If your spring break comes early, don’t hesitate to visit during February to avoid the throngs of spring breakers later on in the season.
7. See the Manatees
Every year Florida’s manatees migrate to warmer waters during the winter season. From November to April you can find them congregating in the state’s natural springs. A February visit provides the ideal opportunity to get an up-close look at these endangered gentle giants. Check out our previous blog for some of the best places to spot manatees in Florida.
