Any port in a tropical storm

North Port and much of Sarasota County enjoys a subtropical climate, meaning long, hot and humid summers, and short, dry but warm winters. The summer months, between June and September, are generally the busiest times to visit, when temperatures can scorch through the 100 degree mark. Luckily, most North Port vacation rentals come with air conditioning, keeping you cool even in the height of summer. The hot summer months also brings the region's wealth of rain and tropical storms. Although these are usually just short, sharp showers, it's well worth packing an umbrella as well as sunscreen.

Take me to the (Wild and Scenic) river

A 40-minute drive south of Sarasota, North Port is set inland from Florida's Gulf Coast. While the white-sand beaches and Warm Mineral Springs are a big draw to the area, there's nothing quite like a hike through the forest. One of Florida's original Wild and Scenic rivers, the Myakka River area is now a designated state park which grazes the northern fringes of North Port. It has nearly 40 miles of hiking trails, as well as a guided tram tour for those feeling less energetic, where you can spot alligator, armadillo and the pink-hued roseate spoonbill in the wetlands.
