Average high temperatures in June are in the high-80s with lows in the low-70s and relatively high humidity. The entire month of June averages almost 10 inches of rain, so don’t be surprised if it rains one day of the three! In South Florida, rain sometimes comes in fast and departs just as quickly. The meeting rooms could be slightly cool, so you may want to bring a light jacket or sweater to stay comfortable.

Oceanfront restaurants and activities in the Las Olas Beach area are a 20-minute, 1-mile walk down the beach from the resort.
