Florence is an unincorporated town in Switzerland County in the southeast corner of Indiana. Switzerland County is filled with fun activities for the whole family. Called "the Birthplace of Commercial Winemaking in America," the area was first settled by Swiss immigrants who came to grow grapes and produce wine. It was the home to the very first commercial winery in the United States. Florence is just one of the small, peaceful towns located in Switzerland County along the Ohio River. Nearby Vevay is a historic river town that is known for its annual Swiss Wine Festival. The festival includes ferry rides along the Ohio River, live music, amusement rides, food, arts and crafts, and a famed grape stomp. A fireworks display is held over the river on Saturday night during the festival. Also, since 1797, every 22 years, the Swiss city of Vevay celebrates La fete des Vignerons (The Winegrowers' Festival.) Florence, in Switzerland County, offers fishing and boating, hiking, golf and driving tours through peaceful countryside and past Amish farms. Other nearby attractions include the Switzerland County Historic Museum, Historic Hoosier Theater and Life on the Ohio (River) museum.

Florence Weather & Climate

The Southwest Corner of Indiana has a climate with strongly marked seasons. Winters are cold, sometimes bitterly so. The transition from cold to hot temps can produce spring weather with thunderstorms and tornadoes. Oppressive humidity and high temperatures arrive in summer. Autumn is often the most pleasant time of the year with lower humidity, and mostly sunny skies. Southerly winds from the Gulf of Mexico transports warm, moisture laden air into the state. The warm moist air collides with continental polar air by the jet stream from Canada. Winter may be unusually cold or summer cool if the influence of polar air is persistent. Similarly, a summer may be unusually warm or a winter mild if air of tropical origin predominates.
