The best time to visit Tampa is during fall and beginning of winter (September - December) when the weather is more pleasant, the city is less crowded, and hotels offer their lowest rates. However, be aware that from August to October is peak season for hurricanes. Summers in Florida are known for being very hot and humid. Wintertime is usually sunny, and mild with temperatures around 65°F (18°C). That is when lots of people come to Florida to escape the cold from the north, which means high hotel fares.
