I am fulltime RVer currently in Florida for the winter : ). Lots of very cool kayaking on the fresh springs. Blue springs state park has inner tubing on the crystal clear springs near orlando area. Of course Disney world, universal studios are fun.

Places I have liked so far:
Fort desoto / state park. Voted best beach near Tampa
Clearwater beach/ Tampa
Weeki Wachi Springs/ N. Tampa. / My favorite Kayaking thus far
Blue springs. Nice laid back Tubing park
Venice Beach / siesta key
Sand bar / Tampa area but you will need a boat to get there. But clean H2O
Ocala area is loaded with fresh springs to kayak.
There is some caves state park / N. Florida

If you want to kayak Weeki Wachi or swim with manatees in Crystal River, let me know. I may be able to get a group of people to go. Jan or Feb is cold for Floridians, but I bet some of them will still go. I live about 7 miles from Weeki Wachi and maybe 30 minutes from crystal river.

My time off will be from last week of January until the second weeks on feb.
How is the temperature at that time in the north part of the State? the cold doesn't bother me, but the rain might be annoying...

It does't rain much in January or Feb. Most of our rain is around July, August, Sept. Something like 2/3rd of the annual rainfall is in 3 or 4 months.

I'm in California right now but I'm from Florida and heading back in a few days, I've roamed up, down, left, and right, and would be more then happy to show you some things. Beach, surfing, springs, kayaking, and good food! Let me know if you're interested while you're down :)
