Outdoor activities are pleasant on most days in any season, but there are winter days when you will need a coat and hot summer days when you will want air-conditioning. Almost everything is air-conditioned. We get very excited on the rare occasions that we have snow. First frost is usually the last of October, last frost the end of March.
