Summer conditions in Southwest Florida may be the best kept secret among the “locals.” Yes, temperatures reach into the 90s every day, there is humidity, and it is “the rainy season.” So what’s there to love?
Well, first of all summer is barely 10 degrees warmer than in the winter months when temperatures only climb into the 80s (but with admittedly lower levels of humidity — most of the time.) However those quick afternoon downpours are likely to take the thermometer down 10 to 15 degrees for the rest of the day!
There are plenty of other things about Florida summers that will easily overcome that bum rap about how ‘oppressive’ things must be here in the off-season. Traffic is a breeze, stores and restaurants less crowded but by no means deserted, and we have a surprising amount of activity — a good example of which are the Summer Jazz concerts at the Naples Beach Hotel.
Anyone contemplating a future move to Naples should definitely visit here during the summer months. I can practically guarantee one or more pleasant surprises!
