Best Times to Visit Fort Myers

The best time to visit Fort Myers is between March and May. Although the sun is up and rates are down, visitors wanting a quiet vacation should be on the lookout for spring breakers. The summer months see the most crowds, especially families, so plan to book at least three months in advance if you'll be traveling then. Like other tropical locales, Fort Myers also sees an influx of travelers in the winter season when high temperatures are in the mid to upper 70s.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

June-August

"Hot" and "sweaty" don't deter families from flocking here. Prepare for daily temperatures in the low 90s and remember to coat yourself in sunscreen. Also, don't forget to pack an umbrella for those frequent afternoon rain showers – the area sees most of its rainfall this time of year. 

Key Events:

September-November

The rain has subsided; the families have fled; the heat has decreased; but the chance of hurricanes persists. These four factors encourage hotels to offer some great rates. Take a look at visiting during this shoulder season.

Key Events:

December-February

Not many people can resist mid to upper 70-degree weather and clean beaches. Hotels recognize this and charge premiums, yet even these are much less than at other Floridian destinations.

Key Events:

March-May

You'll be able to completely relax with diminished crowds, warm 80-degree temperatures and the knowledge that you purchased this serenity for much less than others did a month or two ago.
