Spring time activities in Florida

With glorious weather pretty much all year round, visitors can always rely on Florida’s sandy beaches, beautiful parks and collection of world-class theme parks for entertainment. But there are some special events that can only be enjoyed at certain times of the year, and if you’re visiting Florida this spring make sure you don’t miss out on the activities we’ve listed below!


Universal Studios Mardi Gras

When: February 4th – March 25th

Arguably the most colourful event of the year, you can catch Florida’s biggest ever party at Universal Studios. Their annual Mardi Gras event runs throughout February up until the end of March, so there’s still time to join in on the fun during the start of spring.
