JJoggers, rollerbladers, hikers and bikers can really appreciate the pleasant February weather. A vigorous workout under these ideal conditions is exhilarating. The comfortable climate is also great for enjoying a horseback ride.
For those who love to compete, there is no better time of year for tennis and golf. Meticulously landscaped golf courses abound, some with spectacular views of the Gulf.

Anyone who wants to take to the water has lots of activities to choose from. Boating and fishing are fabulous in February, both close to shore and out in the deep. Parasailing provides lots of excitement and a birds eye view. For the less adventurous, February is perfect for taking a dolphin, sea turtle or eco-tour of the Gulf, adjacent inland waterways and many animal habitats on land. It’s also the time of year when hundreds of manatees hunker down in their winter home in the Orange River, a magnificent sight to see
