Fort Lauderdale Weather in July

Averages By Month

July in Fort Lauderdale is hot now with highs of up to 90°F and the sun is out for 12 hours each day! Make sure to put plenty of sunscreen on the little ones if travelling with children and don’t forget yourself! The Atlantic Ocean has now warmed up to its highest water temperature of 86°F so children can splash around in the water all day long. Be also prepared for humidity and 11 rainy days, though showers usually do not last longer than an hour and can actually feel quite welcome in the summer heat. July is also part of the hurricane season in Fort Lauderdale although it is only in August that the risk really peaks.

July is when many families with children head to to enjoy some of the great Florida summer sun! Fort Lauderdale has so much to offer on the entertainment front too - indoors as well as outdoors. You could try a Taichi and Qigong class in the park or indulge in one of the great restaurants such as the No 1 ranked Premier Cafe and Bar if you want to escape the heat and enjoy some constant AC indoor temperature. Be assured, that every hotel offers AC.

Best Time to Visit Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is one of the beautiful places in the world that has fantastic warm weather all year round. If asked for the most pleasant months weatherwise, most would probably say December until April. During that period you will have warm but not too hot weather, it is less rainy and humid than in summer and there aren’t any hurricanes. However, the summer months in Fort Lauderdale have so much to offer - it’s hot so perfect weather for diving into the Atlantic Ocean and the more frequent summer rain showers do usually pass quickly. So if you pack some rain gear and good sunscreen, you can have a great summer vacation in Fort Lauderdale too. More care should be taken from August until November, when the peak hurricane season is on.

Things to know about Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale boasts many beautiful hotels, restaurants and malls and most importantly its promenade where everyone comes to see and be seen!

Here are some tips on what to do and things to explore whilst there:
The south end of the beach is particularly beautiful as it gets much wider and less crowded. Take a stroll through the city south of Las Olas Boulevard. In between the skyscrapers runs the Tarpon River and the beautiful promenade allows you to observe the passing boats. On the west end of the promenade it gets particularly beautiful as you head towards Old Fort Lauderdale.

Old Fort Lauderdale is where you can see some of the original houses of Fort Lauderdale as well as a little museum.

From Las Olas Way you can take Boat trips, which are highly recommend. The boat will take you through canals passing the most amazing houses of the rich and famous.

On Birch Road you will find the Bonnet House which is well worth seeing. In the middle of the beautiful park resides this stunning historic building. When taking a tour through the house you can find out much more about Hugh Taylor Birch who bought the estate in 1895 as a wedding gift for his daughter. It is a most incredible summer house and a snapshot into how people used to reside in Old Fort Lauderdale!

Whilst in Fort Lauderdale you might also feel like exploring the area a bit. You could take a trip to the Everglades to see some of the most stunning nature and no doubt some alligators too.

You can take a trip down the coast to South Beach in Miami Beach - especially if you haven’t been there yet. The historic Art Deco District and Ocean Drive are must sees!

Whether into gambling or not, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino might also be worth a visit.

And finally, Florida has some of the greatest (outlet) malls. Sawgrass Mills, for example, is the largest mall in the States!
