What are the shoulder seasons for Lehigh Acres, Fl?
Though Southwest Florida is a year-round destination, if you want to experience fewer rainy days, cooler temperatures, and lower tourist crowds, then a shoulder season getaway is perfect for you.
Shoulder seasons are the periods between active or peak seasons at destinations around the world. For Lehigh Acres, Florida, shoulder seasons occur during the fall and spring. Florida crowds tend to be highest in the summer, when kids are out of school, and in the winter when snowbirds and other visitors escape the icy cold of the north to experience the warm, sunny winters of the south.
In October, November, and December, monthly high temperatures average in the mid-80s, low-80s, and upper-70s respectively. Best of all, the fall season averages only two to four rainy days per month. In the spring, temperatures are a little warmer, with March averaging highs of 81˚, April hovering around the mid-80s, and May reaching up to an average monthly high of 89˚. The spring season averages between four and six days of rain per month.

You can catch not one, but two major league baseball teams as they prepare for the start of the season at their Fort Myers spring training facilities.
