2. Bathing Suit

Fall is still perfect pool weather in Florida. Though the sun may not bring extreme Summer heat, the Fall weather will be warm enough to enjoy a swim. Even if the air is crisp, most pools are heated, allowing you to live your poolside vacation dreams!

3. Shorts & Jeans

Fall weather in Florida spans many temperatures. Somedays, shorts are the perfect length, other days longer pants are needed to keep you cozy. It is safe to assume that you’ll need more shorts than jeans, but you won’t regret bringing a pair of jeans or two. So, be prepared for whatever weather by packing for both the heat and a cool breeze. You’ll be glad you did!

4. Lightweight Tops

As you’re on the move during the day, a lightweight top will serve you well. It perfectly prepares you for the weather and allows you to enjoy the Fall Florida breezes. Heavy materials may get too restrictive and unnecessarily warm you up. So, be sure to prioritize packing lightweight materials when it comes to tops.

5. A Sweater

You should always pack a sweater for a Fall Florida vacation. A cool night is common this time of year and a lightweight sweater is the perfect clothing choice to keep you comfortable. Even if you don’t use it outside, it may serve you well indoors at typical vacation stops like restaurants or museums.

6. At Least Two Pairs of Comfortable Walking Shoes

Comfortable walking shoes are a must when it comes to Florida vacations, as most of the time, you are out exploring on your feet. You need to make sure you are setting yourself up for success when it comes to footwear. Sneakers are recommended, but so are any type of comfortable waterproof shoe, as afternoon rain is common. Don’t get stuck with wet or painful shoes by bringing multiple pairs of comfortable, well-thought-out ones.
