If you like your holidays with plenty of sunshine, then the best time to head to International Drive will definitely be during the summer months of July and August, when Florida's heat will be at its highest due to its location on the Gulf stream. Temperatures at this time will reach on average 30° Celsius a day, so be prepared for around 10 hours of sun! During this time temperatures will also be quite humid, so if you're not an avid sun fan, then you'll be pleased to know that Florida experiences great weather all year round, so whatever time you visit it'll still be warm.
In January, February and March for example, temperatures average about 25° Celsius, with very little rainfall as Florida enjoys very dry winters, so rest assured that you can still enjoy a warm break whatever time of year it is.
