KEEP COOL

2017 Travel Guide to Florida - - WELCOME TO FLORIDA -

Heat ex­haus­tion can af­fect any­one, es­pe­cially young chil­dren and the el­derly. Symp­toms in­clude mild mus­cle cramps to de­hy­dra­tion. If you feel faint, head for air conditioning and start drink­ing flu­ids. Also keep in mind that Florida is the light­ning cap­i­tal of the United States. Af­ter­noon storms start and stop quickly and of­ten with­out much warn­ing. How­ever, most parks and some other pub­lic places are equipped with light­ning de­tec­tors. Heed the say­ing, “If thun­der roars, go in­doors.” Hur­ri­cane sea­son runs June 1–Novem­ber 30, but there is no need to worry as your ho­tel (and the lo­cal news) will keep you well in­formed. If you plan a trip dur­ing hur­ri­cane sea­son, it’s wise to buy travel in­sur­ance.
