Florida is nicknamed the Sunshine State for a reason. The ever-present sunshine and warmer temperatures makes the state as a whole an exceptional place to call home. South Florida is particularly pleasant, as we enjoy both beautiful weather and convenient water access to both the vast Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.
The weather in South Florida is frankly, unbeatable. According to National Weather Service standards, most days in South Florida are considered "mostly sunny," which means most days have between 25 to 50 percent cloud cover — or less.
Many move to the area to get an extra dose of sunshine all year long, as South Florida is the only part of the continental US with a tropical climate. The area maintains relatively moderate temperatures all year long, with an average annual high of 83.3°F, an average annual low of 67.8°F, and an overall average annual temperature of 75.55°F. The temperature rarely dips below 47°F or extends above 92°F, avoiding discomfort on either end of the spectrum. Plus, the ever-present sunshine completes the picture-perfect setting for both residents and visitors of South Florida.
And believe it or not, some of the most pleasant months to be in South Florida (Fort Lauderdale, specifically) extend between mid-November and early May, according to the tourism score from WeatherSpark. This score is determined by evaluating clear, rainless days with perceived temperatures between 65°F and 80°F. And for hot-weather activities, the best time to be in the area is between late March and late May and mid-October through mid-November, when temperatures can range between 75°F and 90°F.
When much of the country is gearing up for rain, snow and freezing temperatures as we enter fall and winter, we are enjoying moderate temperatures, cheerful sunshine and ideal conditions for golfing, dining al fresco or lounging at the pool.
It's no wonder so many are considering a move to South Florida. Other factors drawing people to the area include favorable tax laws, beach and Intracoastal access, the resort-like atmosphere, and more desirable features found only in South Florida.
Not to mention, the region is home to some of the most impressive properties in the world. Explore our unrivaled $1.14 billion estate portfolio to survey some of the finest homes for sale in South Florida.
Tee off at one of the many incredible golf courses in and around Fort Lauderdale — or gain access to a prestigious private course in South Florida. These impressive courses boast the amenities, well-manicured landscapes and idyllic natural settings to create the ideal golf experience.
Boca Raton has several restaurants with outdoor patios, many of which overlook the Intracoastal or the ocean, providing a scenic backdrop for your meal. Reserve your spot outside to take in the fresh air and sunshine while you enjoy your meal and a glass of white wine.
There are endless outdoor activities to do in the area, including yoga on the beach, tennis, swimming, stand up paddleboarding and more. You can even join one of these outdoor fitness classes in Boca Raton for a more social exercise experience.
If you're in the market for a home, consider buying a property that emphasizes indoor/outdoor living. Many of our properties provide a seamless flow from the indoor living space out to the outdoor entertainment area, often equipped with a summer kitchen, loggia or a sparkling swimming pool and spa. There is truly no better place to bask in the South Florida sunshine than the comfort of your own home.

Photo Courtesy of The HideawayWhile there is certainly no shortage of places to grab a cocktail in Fort Lauderdale, The Hideaway offers a complete historic experience. Located in the classic Bryan building at the easternmost tip of Las Olas Boulevard, The Hideaway offers a rare glimpse into Fort Lauderdale's past. In fact, this building was one of the first commercial buildings built after a fire destroyed much of the city in 1912. So this building was born just before the Prohibition Era, making The Hideaway one of the most true-to-history environments for sipping on handcrafted cocktails in the city — even though the bar itself opened in late 2017. The space has an industrial chic feel, complete with original Dade County pine, refurbished and reclaimed decor, stamped tin ceilings, and custom period furniture. Award-winning mixologist Carla Rivera oversees the drink menu, which offers a range of artisanal cocktails and craft beers. Complement your drink with a bite to eat from the eclectic rotating counter-style menu.
Photo Courtesy of Unit BYou may have visited the Brass Tap without even realizing this hidden gem was just around the corner. Inside the gastropub, there's a plain wooden door that appears to lead into a storage closet — but it reveals so much more. To enter, you'll need a personalized code, which you must access in advance by filling out a form on Unit B's website. This code will only work that same day and you must access a new code for a repeat visit. Once inside, savor the swanky, lounge interior and the wide selection of Prohibition-era cocktails. A favorite is the Havana, a straightforward combination of rum, Cuban colada syrup, and black walnut bitters. Another classic is the 21st Amendment, made with scotch, fresh lemon juice, and orange blossom honey and ginger syrups. Everything here is handled with precision, from the creation of cocktails to the first-class service. Unit B is open from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Sunday.
Photo Courtesy of Apothecary 330Behold — another secret bar hidden in an unassuming establishment. Step inside Pizza Craft near Esplanade Park and look for the black curtain, which shields this upscale speakeasy from plain sight. Apothecary 330 features more than 300 whiskeys, over 20 beers on tap, and an absinthe drip. You will be served by "bar chefs" rather than bartenders, who can walk you through the sophisticated cocktail list. Take a look at the house rules before making your debut at Apothecary 330, as they have a strict semi-formal dress code among other rules. The vibe here is sophisticated and vintage, providing the perfect atmosphere for sipping on a Prohibition-era cocktail.
