Florida is the southernmost of the contiguous states in the United States of America and is famously dubbed as ‘The Sunshine State’. Are you planning a sunny getaway in Florida following your next medical conference? You should check out this blog for some suggestions and the eMedEvents website, which has the most comprehensive online database for medical conferences. It lists about 694 upcoming CME medical events scheduled for the years 2018-2019.
Florida can be simply described as a land of intoxicating beauty. It will take your breath away with its spectacular views of the cities, wild wetlands, national parks, mangrove islands, and sun-kissed beaches. If that’s not enough, you always have the option to visit Disney World or many other outdoor activities. You will find no shortage of adventures in this prime vacation state with over 8,000 miles of shoreline.
Florida has a humid subtropical climate. The best time to visit Florida is either early March to May or October to November. Peak tourist season is from March to April and June to August, as well as Christmas and around the New Year. Make sure you also plan for the hurricane season, which runs from June through November. Offseason is from January to March. We recommend you to book your flights+ hotels in advance through Priceline for some of the best deals.
Transportation in Florida
Florida is a big state. In the large cities, the local transportation options include buses, trains, Metro rails, Tri-Rail, Lynx buses, Amtrak, and taxis. However, if you want to see more than just downtown these may not be the best options and might not connect you to your destination. You have plenty of other options to choose from like renting a car or an RV (recreational vehicle) or you can cruise around on a bike. Parking is not usually a problem in this state.
