Florida and winter may seem like an oxymoron, but this odd couple is what makes Florida so popular during the winter season. While all of North America experiences record breaking temperature drops, Florida is virtually unscathed – allowing Floridians and visitors to experience the outdoors in a more pleasant mood.
Along with winter comes celebration, winter fests, Christmas and New Years.
