Do You Have What It Takes?
If you ask anyone living in Miami, they’ll tell you that the winter season is the harshest three days of the year. With temperatures dropping to a bone-chilling 65 degrees some nights, it’s no wonder many travelers steer clear and wait for the warmer months to roll around.
But fear not! We’re here to share some essential tips and tricks to not only survive the trials of Miami winter but thoroughly enjoy yourself along the way.
– Sunscreen: As with most other harsh environments, you’ll want to spend a decent amount of time on the beach, soaking up the sun. Pack sunscreen to make sure you protect your skin from the harsh winter sunrays. Frostbite has nothing on Florida winter sunburns.
– Margaritas: Hydration is the first concern of any serious survivalist. A thirsty traveler is as good as dead in taxing environments such as Miami.
– Swimsuit: No world-weary vagabond is ever without a stylish bathing suit to help them weather the hardships of travel. You never know when the situation will call for a sudden change in wardrobe, so it’s better to stay prepared.
– Sandals: You’re going to be doing a lot of strenuous hiking up and down the sand and sidewalk. Make sure your footwear is as heavy-duty as the conditions you plan to endure!
Maintain a Positive Mindset
As difficult as it is to stay upbeat in the midst of relaxing atmospheres and beautiful sunshine, you’ll need to steady your resolve if you are to thrive in the bitter Miami cold (once again, 65 degrees!).
Be willing to explore new places and meet new people. Miami natives are more than eager to help travelers find their way and are already well-accustomed to the rough climate.
So What Are You Waiting For?
While we may have made it sound quite intimidating, Miami winter can be rather enjoyable for those stout of heart and liver.
As long as you heed the advice outlined here and keep an open mind, even you can survive this severe but beautiful time of the year. Happy travels!
