Fort Lauderdale

It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Fort Lauderdale

Peak Season: December to March

The beaches are packed, hotel rates are higher, the restaurant wait times are long, but the sunny days and balmy nights outshine the weather in just about any other part of the country.

Off Season: June to September

If you can cope with sweltering heat and afternoon showers, you'll be rewarded with less crowded beaches, fewer traffic jams, lower hotel prices, and more congenial locals.

Sweet Spot: April to May; October to November

Perhaps the best time to visit: thin crowds and warm seas without the extreme humidity of summer. Just watch out for hurricane activity during the fall.
