Best Times to Visit West Palm Beach
The best times to visit West Palm Beach are April and May. You'll be greeted by warm 70s and 80s and non-peak prices. Families will flood the area in the summer, while hurricanes may follow in the fall. Winter is spectacular, but you'll be competing against celebs like Serena Williams for a table at the local dinner spot. Demand rises and so do hotel rates.
The city's high season is winter, when visitors flee the cold of their northern hometowns (Fact: In the winter, the population of Palm Beach doubles that of the summer months). The winter also ushers in the most expensive rates to this already pricey destination. With day temperatures ranging from the low 70s to the mid 80s, Christmas in this coastal paradise will cost you dearly.
With temperatures that rarely dip below 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the evenings and peaking in the 80s during the day, this short shoulder season before summer vacation might be just the right time to visit before the parade of families arrives. Also, be sure to catch Sunfest, one of the largest music festivals in Florida.
|June-September||With daily temps in the 80s and low 90s and high humidity, West Palm weather is at its most uncomfortable. The lower hotel rates, however, will offer some consolation.|
