Best Times to Visit Boca Raton

The best time to visit Boca Raton is in the fall or winter when temperatures are at their most comfortable. Fall (September to November) constitutes the city's offseason, offering the lowest prices on accommodations – a side effect of Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June to November. The winter months (January to March) are usually crowded with snowbirds from the northeastern U.S. and Canada, and as such are the most expensive time to visit. Shoulder season runs from mid-April to mid-August. Summers are rainy, hot and humid thanks to the unpredictable hurricane season.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

September-December

September can still be hot and humid with a fair amount of rain (both September and October fall during peak hurricane season). Despite the precipitation, fall temperatures are comfortable, averaging the 80s during the day and dropping into the mid-70s at night. If you want to score a deal on accommodations, consider visiting during this period. Just think about booking a refundable hotel rate since hurricane season may cause you to cancel your plans.

Key Events:

January-April

January and February are typically the coolest months of the year, when temperatures hover in the mid-70s during the day and the high 50s at night. For snowbirds from Canada, Europe and the northeastern U.S., it feels like spring. By March, the average daily highs are back into the low 80s. In general, winter is the driest season, but it's also the most expensive in terms of lodging rates and vacation rentals.

Key Events:

May-August

Summer, which is hot and humid, constitutes Florida's shoulder season. June marks the start of hurricane season, meaning heavy rainfall is likely if you visit during mid- to late summer. In July – the area's hottest month – temperatures reach the low to mid-90s daily. But if you can withstand the sticky temperatures, you'll be rewarded with lower hotel and flight prices, except for the week surrounding the July Fourth holiday, which is a peak time for visitors.
