In Hernando County we do not have snow covered holidays, instead we have the opportunity to have Christmas at the beach or on the river. We are far enough north that the maple leaves turn red and many trees lose their leaves over the winter, but we do not have a Fall season with great variation of color. During winter, we get several nights when the weather drops below freezing and frost in the morning, but winter here can also include a number of beach days.
