It’s a little known fact, but we really do have winter in Florida. We wanted to make sure you have the scoop on surviving it, so here’s our 5 quick and dirty tips for winter RV campers in Florida.
1. Build a Sandman
On those days where it’s 75 and sunny with a breeze, you might be wondering what to do with yourself. We suggest bundling up in shorts and a t-shirt, maybe a light jacket, and heading down to any of our beautiful award-winning beaches. You can build a sandman, soak up the rays and remember how you hate the snow. It will be a lovely day indeed.
2. Bring Back-up Shoes
In Florida, the designated footwear is flip flops. We have beach flip flops, casual flip flops, wedding flip flops. Listen, we wear them to everything. One day a year something crazy happens. It gets too cold for flip flops. There are some die hard Floridians who will try to ride it out, but don’t be that person. Go ahead and bring along a pair of close-toed shoes. Everyone will know you’re not from around here, but at least your feet will be warm.
3. Take Lots of Pictures
Some people choose to stay in the cold and snow. Those people should definitely see pictures of how lovely Florida is this time of the year. The weather is perfect, the beaches are beautiful and the people are friendly. It’s basically paradise. It’s the perfect time to fill your Facebook up with pictures that will make your friends hop on a plane and head straight to the Sunshine State.
4. Swim With the Manatees
These amazing creatures are called gentle giants, and guess what? They love warm water. Where there are manatees, there is warm water! If you’re looking to get in a swim on a rather cold day, do it with the manatees. True to Florida, they aren’t fans of the cold, so they definitely try to avoid it. Plus, swimming with them makes for great memories.
5. Stay Inside
You’re an RV camper, so guess what? Your inside MOVES! Use that to your advantage and go on the best Florida road trip ever. Stay inside when it’s cold and when the sun comes out go exploring. It’s the best of both worlds!
