Most of us only get a limited amount of time off from work or other duties, so we want to make sure we get as much out of our time off as possible. One of the biggest concerns for many is the timing of their vacation. Is August better than July? What about spring? Or winter? They say there’s no time like the present, but if you want to enjoy the present on your vacation, then we recommend you plan in advance for your perfect holiday at one of our St. Pete Beach hotels.
From March to May is the spring season, which is one of the less crowded times of the year – except around spring break. That means it’s easier to find availability on the dates you’re looking for, as long as you still make sure to book in advance, since St. Pete Beach is picturesque year-round and draws visitors accordingly. Spring can also be a good time to visit if you’re a person who either doesn’t enjoy, or can’t bear, heat. There’s plenty of warmth available in the spring months, with temperatures between balmy 75°F and 85°F, but more extreme temperatures of above 90°F are more common in the summer season.
From June to August is the summer season and the weather is naturally at its hottest. Temperatures normally fluctuate between 75°F and 95°F, so this is the perfect season for heat lovers and tanning enthusiasts. Outdoor pursuits like kayaking and water-skiing are at their best, and the surrounding areas are lively with activities as vacationers from all over the country arrive to enjoy their summer vacations. This is the busiest time of the year for most resorts, so finding specific accommodation for a specific date will require you to book well in advance.
After the busy summer season it’s time for fall, when temperatures remain surprisingly high. Between September and November the temperatures are normally between 75°F and 90°F, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the beach and work on that tan in preparation for the long winter. Fall is also a less crowded time for some of the amazing activities offered near our resorts, like the Salvador Dali Museum, Kennedy Space Center, Florida Aquarium and more.
Winter season, ranging from December to February, is the least hot season on St. Pete Beach. Thankfully we are in Florida, so the temperature is still much, much warmer than in most places. If you want to escape freezing winter temperatures for a while, you might want to consider taking your yearly vacation in the winter months. The temperatures here are between 55°F and 75°F, a far cry from any danger of freezing. We also make sure our bay side and beach side pools are heated around the year at a perfect 85°F. Winter season is also a little less crowded in terms of booking in advance and enjoying the activities around the area.
