As states across the country prepare for colder weather and snow, Florida remains a sunny paradise. Plumlee Gulf Beach Realty invites you to escape the cold and plan a winter escape on the Florida Gulf Coast. Enjoy mild winter weather, pristine beaches, wildlife encounters, festive events, and outdoor adventures this season. Whether you seek relaxation, adventure, or a bit of both, the Florida Gulf Coast offers a diverse range of winter activities to complement your vacation!

1. Enjoy the Mild Winter Weather of Indian Rocks Beach

One of the best things about winter in Indian Rocks Beach is the weather! Winter lows rarely fall below 55 degrees, and winter highs reach the low 70s. Check the average weather in Indian Rocks Beach to narrow down what to pack and do during your winter getaway.

2. Compliment Your Getaway with Festive Events

If you plan your winter getaway around the holidays, we offer many festive events to complement your time here. Please read our blog, Embrace the Magic of a Florida Beach Christmas, for information on holiday events! Discover even more Pinellas County events on the Beach Welcome Center site throughout the year. 

3. Access Endless Outdoor Adventures

The mild winter weather means many of our outdoor activities are available year-round. Stay in one of our Gulf Front vacation rentals and access our white sand beaches steps from your condo rental. Beyond our beaches, winter is an excellent time to enjoy water activities, explore nature preserves, and sharpen your golf skills.

4. Feast on Seasonal Seafood

Enjoy seasonal seafood dishes like stone crab during your winter escape on the Florida Gulf Coast. Stone crab is only legal to harvest from mid-October through early May, offering a short time to enjoy these delicious crabs. Stop by Nachman’s Native Seafood and pick up freshly caught stone crab!

5. Enjoy Fewer Crowds and Vacation Discounts

The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is an excellent time to visit if you want to enjoy fewer crowds and less beach traffic. You can go Christmas shopping in flip-flops!  We have a discount available called Holiday Halftime for last-minute vacations booked between Thanksgiving and Christmas; please check our social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for updated information on specials!
