Fall: September and October are nearly as warm as July and August, with slightly lower rainfall, which makes them popular as well. November and December have average highs in the low 70s and very little rainfall, which make them perfect if you want to spend time in the sun or on the water but you prefer to avoid the hottest months of the year.
