If you are new to the area or are considering making a move to Boca Bayou from somewhere up north, you may have heard people say that there are no seasons in South Florida. Well, we are here to tell you that that is simply not true.
If you having been living in a Boca Bayou condo by the water for a while, you have probably spent more than a few afternoons sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and the breezes that blow here. And, if you were paying attention, you probably noticed differences in the weather as the months flew by.
The Four Seasons
Our seasons are more subtle than the ones you might be familiar with if you have been living in, say, New England or the Midwest, but they are definitely worth getting to know.
In summer, the long sunny days seem never to end. In fall, there is a certain freshness in the breeze. In winter, you may actually need a sweater when you sit outside on your balcony or patio at Boca Bayou and look for some of the birds who winter with us. By spring, you should be able to pack it away!
And Enjoy All the Other Seasons at Boca Bayou
The rules are a little different in South Florida, so we aren’t limited to a celebration of the four calendar seasons. We have many seasons that we look forward to throughout the year, including:
- The Season: The period that stretches from approximately late November into April is known simply as “The Season.” This is a wonderful time of year when our seasonal residents return to soak up the sunshine and entertainment and social calendars quickly fill up.
- Mango Season: South Florida is one of the few areas in the country where mangos can be grown. The sweet, juicy stone fruit loves our mild winters and warm sun. Some trees ripen sooner than others, so the season usually begins in May and lasts into July. If you’ve never tried a mango, be sure mark your calendar for this delicious season!
- Sea Turtle Nesting Season in Boca Raton: From the beginning of March through the end of October, sea turtles come ashore along Florida’s east coast to lay their eggs. According to our friends at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton, “Three species of sea turtle nest regularly in Boca Raton: leatherback, loggerhead, and green.”
