We here at Peach Valley know that there’s something special about fall in Florida. The drier air, clearer skies and ever-so-slightly cooler temperatures make it an especially great place to live, work and play over the next few months. In today’s blog, we will be sharing some of our very favorite parts of the Florida fall season.
While Florida falls may not bring a drastic change in weather, we do so see some pleasant improvements—mainly from summertime storms to bluer skies and milder temperatures that make us want to go outside and enjoy it all firsthand. As the season progresses and we reach the end of hurricane season, we also have a lot less to worry about in terms of big tropical storms—which is definitely something to appreciate!
Whether your child is a little league star, or you’re an avid supporter of local teams, there’s lots to enjoy in Central Florida as far as sports go. There’s also the exciting opportunity to put on your team colors and root for college teams like the Gators or UCF Knights.
Summer may reign supreme in terms of outdoor adventures in other states—but when it comes to Florida, fall is the best time to get out and explore! The shift in weather means outdoor activities like neighborhood hikes or trips to your local park are even more enjoyable.
Our own brand of fall foliage
It’s a common thought that Florida doesn’t see any leaf color change this time of year—but look again! We see our own brand of fall foliage in the form of rich yellows and oranges in select spots across the state, especially in the hilly center of the state. While the coverage of color may not be as pronounced or as widespread as that of more northerly states, it’s definitely worth observing on highway drives or hikes through your favorite state park.
Fun and festivals galore
Fall is the time for outdoor fun and festivals in Florida! Farmers’ markets open up across the state because the weather is suddenly perfect for outdoor browsing and food shopping. You’ll also see lots of festivals going on at this time of year, from local treats to events beloved by the entire world, such as the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, a classic “must-do” here in Central Florida.
Easy outdoor entertaining
If you’re someone who loves to throw outdoor get-togethers or lavish dinner parties, fall is the perfect time to bring your entertainment outdoors. There’s something especially enjoyable about enjoying great food and company against the backdrop of your backyard patio or waterfront view.
Scrumptious seasonal flavors
As we’ve just mentioned, entertaining during the fall is fun—as is the food you eat while entertaining! Fall flavors and textures are some of our favorites, from rich comfort food like soups and hearty sandwiches to delicious baked goods and, of course, classic fall pies. You can enjoy some of these dishes right here at Peach Valley!
