Contrary to popular belief, Florida Everglades is not a swath of just wetlands that form a large swamp, which teems with gigantic spiders, large snakes and crocodiles. Instead, Florida Everglades is the place where many forms of wildlife thrive, nature's beauty flourishes and the weather patterns are perfect, among other things.
The temperature during summer months is, on average, 80 degrees. During winter months, the temperature is, on average, 60 degrees. August is the best month to visit the Everglades because that tends to be the warmest month of the year, with the temperature soaring as high as 89 degrees.
Every day, during any season, is open for fun and games. Interesting to note, the wildlife is super easy to spot between December and April. Moreover, the number of tourists is significantly lower during May through November.

Fishing is the favorite activity in the Everglades, and guided tours are always an option for Florida travelers--including the elderly, young adults and children. Some other intriguing activities in the Everglades are hiking, canoeing, bicycling, kayaking, camping and boating.
