13) Summer Weather
Florida is known as the Sunshine State, but the weather doesn't always seem to know that. If you aren't used to summer weather in Florida and take a peek at the ten day forecast before you leave, there is a good chance that you will panic. Most summer days in Florida will have a fairly high chance of thunderstorms. Don't let the threat of rain stop your fun, the storms usually pass quickly. Throw some ponchos into your bag and plan to eat or browse in the shops when a storm hits. You'll be back outside again before you know it. Buy cheap ponchos ahead of time and then throw them out when the rain has passed. That way, you won't be carrying wet ponchos in your bag. Make sure that you also have sunscreen for the rest of the day. This is necessary all year long, not just during the summer. Your skin will burn faster in Florida than in most parts of the United States, and sunscreen can help prevent a lot of pain later on.
