Is July a bad month for visiting Miami? We are considering relocating to Florida, but have never been there before. We are now planning a first visit. I have read that July is hot and rainy. But is it raining all the time? And is the heat unbearable? We want a beach vacation, and we are bringing our four year old child. Is this not a good idea in July?
What do you think?

If you are considering moving to Florida I would suggest a visit during the summer. July is the third rainest month, its HOT yes and HUMID. June is the rainest month and August is the second rainest month. We do have some days that it can rain all day, but not many. What we usually have is rain in the afternoon, off and on basically. If you want to go to the beach, just go before noon to make sure you avoid any chance of rain. Is the heat unbearable well that is a hard one to answer as some people love the heat and some people hate it, it all depends on the individual.

Would I visit Florida in July for a vacation, no, but many people do. But if you are thinking about moving to Florida you should come in the summer. July is also part of our Hurricane Season, its not the busiest month though.

Yes, you should visit in the summer so you could feel what the summers are like, and see if you could handle it from May until late Oct. July, Aug, and Sept are the hottest months.

Definitely visit here in summer, it is what made me absolutely love it and what makes others absolutely hate it. I feel that the summers of Miami could definitely be a dealbreaker. Remember: rainy in Miami summers is different from other places. It is guaranteed to thunderstorm close to every day.. but it is not an all day thing. It is the weirdest weather you'll see, 30 minutes you have a complete downpour and 20 minutes later it will be completely sunny. Miami is the first place I have ever been in a downpour walking out of class and no rain at all after making it to my car. The lighting is really cool to watch also!

go for it, it is hot, humid, and you do get the afternoon showers but it still is a great place! Spend the mornings on the beach and afternoons in malls or maybe even house hunting. If you like it in July...you'll like it all year round

I agree with what others have said. It will be good to get a feel for what the weather will be like for a most of the year. Not to mention, you'll probably get better rates on hotels, etc. because it is off-season.

That sounds cool...I've always loved a good thunderstorm.

Actually that style sounds a lot like Southeast Asia. Not the thunder part, but this heavy downpour of rain...then when it stops, it feels almost as if it never even happened.

It's ok to come in July but I cannot guarantee the weather. We have friends who came here during the summer and it rained every single day. One of them was a child and she was really excited about the beach, poor thing, she didn't get chance to enjoy it.

I think it's a great idea. Coming in July can show you what Summers in Miami are like, so you're not tricked into thinking Miami is always cool, breeezy September-April weather.
