Whether you’re planning a bike ride, kayak adventure, a photo opportunity at the southernmost point buoy, or dining on a patio, the weather should be on your side. Remember to pack a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen for the sunny days ahead. However, you should also consider bringing a rain jacket and umbrella to be prepared for rain showers.
