Outdoor Events in Florida in July

Summers in Florida are hot, humid and often have afternoon thunderstorms. It is important to dress appropriately for the summer heat, drink lots of water, keep your skin sunscreened, and be ready for the rain. Despite the heat, July events are fun-filled festivities in Florida.

Theme Parks & Attractions

The 4th of July is notoriously one of the busiest days of the year at Disney and other attractions around the state. If you are planning a trip to Disney for this holiday, plan way ahead of time and be sure to make reservations for everything. It can be a fun time if you are prepared for the crowds and have your park and food needs reserved. Also consider waiting until mid-July as this is when Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival now begins.

July is the biggest water parks month in Florida so if you want to avoid the heat and the crowds at the theme parks, head over to the cool waters of Florida’s plethora of Water Parks. And if you love the water, get to any of the beaches around Florida and enjoy the nice warm waters this time of year. You can also avoid the heat by checking out indoor museums. See what events are happening on their websites.
