Most people come to Florida to escape the bitterly cold north during the winter months, while some locals are having some serious FOMO at the thought of building snowmen and having a day off from work or school. And while it may not be enough to get you out of your daily obligations, there are actually plenty of places in Florida where you can see “snow”!
