Make a holiday apartment in Welaka your home away from home

At a holiday apartment in Welaka, tourists can see a different side of Florida. Sited on the edge of the massive Juniper Springs Recreation Area, Welaka holiday villas and apartments afford the opportunity to go where the locals go, instead of following fellow holidaymakers. This tends to give rise to much more meaningful interactions with the locals, and allows real insight into Florida culture. Welaka holiday accommodation is less than an hour from the beaches of the Atlantic coast and just over an hour outside Orlando, so the famous theme parks and seafront are easily accessible. All Welaka holiday rentals come equipped with air-conditioning and satellite or cable TV, and if they don't have access to a pool, they'll usually be set right on the water.

Things to do

-Nature: The mammoth Juniper Springs Recreational Area is right on the doorstep of Welaka holiday rentals, situated in the Ocala National Forest. Offering camping, hiking, boating, swimming and wildlife watching, this is one of the oldest and most widely known recreational areas on the US east coast.

-Beaches: There are many lake and riverside beaches around Welaka holiday accommodation, thanks to the proximity of Juniper Springs Recreational Area. Though great for swimming, boating and snorkelling, however, a short drive will have to be made to the Atlantic coast for sandy shores, where the likes of Daytona Beach await.

-Watersports: If paddling is preferred over zooming around on a jetski, Welaka has the situation covered. Though the huge lakes nearby do allow for sailing, waterskiing and the like, a spot of quiet kayaking or canoeing through beautifully peaceful woodland scenery is often the first choice for visitors.

-Nightlife: Not quite the booming frenzy many people head to Florida for, especially during Spring Break, Welaka tends to focus on peace, relaxation, and quiet communion with nature. Nightlife consists of a handful of restaurants. If the desire for a knees-up does exist, however, a holiday can always be timed to coincide with a motorcycle rally or NASCAR race at nearby Daytona Beach.

-Theme Parks: If a strong contrast to all the nature walks and gentle paddling is desired, the famous amusement parks of Orlando are less than two hours away. With Disney World and Universal Studios leading the pack, a day of near-death experiences may be the perfect setup for a welcoming return to the calm of the forest and waterways.

Weather in Welaka

Florida's primary appeal is its subtropical climate, which ranges from comparatively moderate heat in the summer to quite acceptable warmth in the winter. Summer is humid, however, which means it feels hotter than it actually is, and thunderstorms often result in the afternoons. The winters are drier, and approximate a British summer. Maximum temperatures in the summer are around the mid-30°C range, while wintertime sees highs in the low-20s, and frost as something of a freak event.

Travel to Welaka

Flying in and hiring a car for the duration of a stay are really the best and only options, as outside of New York, America has something of a hate-hate relationship with public transport. The entire country is geared up for the automobile, however, and the price of petrol means hiring a car is often the cheapest option, never mind the most convenient. Orlando International Airport is the best entry option, as it has direct flights to Europe and the UK, and is only 101 miles away. Jacksonville is an alternative at 89 miles distant, but has the disadvantage of no direct flights.
