As the leaves start to change colors and the air turns crisp in Canada, many of us begin to dream about escaping the impending winter. Lucky for you, the perfect destination to shake off the cold is just one direct flight away from Abeona.
Let us head to the beautiful Sunshine State, Florida! October, November and December mark the beginning of the Florida season, and there's no better time to pack your bags and head south with family or friends. The “Florida season” is a great time for you to profit from jet sharing opportunities as many of our clients fly to destinations in the sunny state during October and November.
In this article, we'll explore why the upcoming months are ideal for visiting Florida, what you can do there, and why chartering a private jet uplifts your sunny getaway even further.
October, November and December – The Perfect Travel Time For Florida
One of the primary reasons October, November and December are fantastic months to visit Florida is the weather. While the summer months in Florida can be sweltering and humid, fall brings cooler and more comfortable temperatures. You can expect average highs in the mid-70s to low 80s°F (24-28°C), making it an excellent time for outdoor activities without the scorching heat.
Since Florida is a popular destination year-round for visitors from around the world, the summer in Florida can get crowded and a little crazy. The fall months are considered the “shoulder season.” This means fewer tourists, shorter lines at attractions, and more tranquil beaches for you. You can enjoy the state's top destinations with a bit more space, less noise, less traffic, and more serenity.
Fall in Florida is not just about palm trees and beaches; it's also the season for beautiful foliage. You can witness the leaves changing colors in some parts of the state, like North Florida and the Panhandle, creating picturesque landscapes for nature enthusiasts.
Jet-Sharing and Matchmaking For Flights to Florida
Abeona’s clients frequently fly to several destinations in Florida: Palm Beach, Miami, Naples, Sarasota, and Boca.
Each year, we ask our clients for their Floridian flight schedules and vacation plans. Since many of our clients fly to Florida during the winter months, this is the time where we excel in matching your flight with that of another flyer or arranging the share of a jet where your travel plans align with a similar inquiry from other flyers. Both of these travel options can bring down your costs significantly.
But how does matchmaking differ from jet-sharing, and empty-leg flights?
If you prefer to fly alone and want to plan your flight ahead of time and save some costs, matchmaking is your best option. Matchmaking refers to the practice where we match your flight, say Toronto to Palm Beach, with the opposite flight of another flyer who is flying from Palm Beach to Toronto. This allows you and the other party to save on costs ahead of time. The difference between matchmaking to an empty-leg flight is that matchmaking is usually done ahead of time and empty-legs are more or less spontaneous opportunities that pop up.
If you are willing to share your private jet charter with other parties, jet-sharing is your way to go. The costs of the private jet charter will be split among the passengers thus bringing down the costs for everyone involved.
Abeona’s extensive expertise allows us to meticulously align schedules, take charge of the logistics involved and ascertain whether your desired travel date and destination align with any flight schedules of other parties.
If you let us know about your travel plans for Florida this year, you might not have to wait for empty-leg flights to pop up or can share your charter with another group of fliers, and save costs ahead of time.
What Can You Do in Florida During the Winter Season?
Florida equals beach bliss. Florida boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Whether you're in Miami, Naples, or Destin, the fall season offers perfect beach weather without the overwhelming summer crowds. Enjoy, swimming, sunbathing, surfing and water sports to your heart's content.
Let’s not forget about the theme park magic that Florida entails for our little ones (and ourselves). Florida is renowned for its theme parks, including Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld Orlando. Visiting in the fall allows you to experience the magic of shorter lines and cooler temperatures.
Fall in Florida — A Golfer’s Paradise
Florida is a golfer's paradise, and the fall months offer ideal conditions for hitting the various links in the region. Florida boasts a plethora of prestigious golf clubs that draw enthusiasts from around the world.
Topping the list is TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, home to the iconic 17th hole island green and host of The Players Championship, often dubbed the "fifth major." In Naples, the Tiburón Golf Club offers two championship courses designed by Greg Norman, known for their challenging layout and stunning aesthetics. The Streamsong Resort in Central Florida boasts three world-class courses designed by renowned architects, Bill Coore, Ben Crenshaw, and Tom Doak, set amidst the state's natural beauty.
For a touch of history, the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, founded in 1929, is a private gem renowned for its exclusivity and classic Donald Ross design. Lastly, the Innisbrook Golf Resort in Tampa Bay offers the Copperhead Course, home to the Valspar Championship, presenting a demanding test of skill on a picturesque layout.
These prestigious golf links collectively contribute to Florida's reputation as a golfer's paradise. With countless golf courses scattered throughout the state, you can tee off in style.
