We don’t have to tell you — July is hot in SWFL. Here are our splash down road trip suggestions to keep cool without getting on a plane to go north.
• Head to the East Coast and learn to surf on the cooler waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
• Get to the Keys to get your max of bugs during the two-day sport season for spiny lobster (also known as lobster mini season) July 28-29, 2021.
• The mermaids are swimming again at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and so can you. The best part? The crystal-clear spring is always a refreshing 72 degrees.
