It's either extremely hot & humid, or just hot, during the summer. During the rainy season, severe thunderstorms occur often. The winter isn't too bad, but in recent years snow & ice have thrown things out of balance.
From fancy venues to hidden gems, the food and nightlife scene offers a variety of options. Tons of high end to low end eateries that provide quality food, service, and diversity.
