Benefits of Taking a Vacation During Christmas in Florida

Hopefully, after reading our list of reasons why you should celebrate the holidays down south, you’ll already be reserving your vacation rental. Must we remind you, there isn’t any snow in Florida?  

Warm Weather

During the winter months, people don’t absorb as much vitamin D as during the summer months. Although, this doesn’t seem to be a problem down in Southwest Florida! Also known as the sunshine state, Florida typically doesn’t see temperatures colder than 55 degrees. Warm weather leads to more time outside, more exciting outfits, and all-around more smiles. Step aside Grinch, families that spend Christmas in Florida spread nothing but good vibes!  

Don’t have to worry about bulking up in sweaters, hats, winter coats, etc.

Unique Holiday Attractions

When you celebrate Christmas the same way every year, the traditional games and activities may get boring. Spending Christmas in Florida means experiencing holiday attractions that you’ve never seen before! 

  • Snow Fest Sarasota: Each year, over 15,000 visitors gather at Snow Fest Sarasota to celebrate the holiday season. You can snap a photo with Santa, race down giant snow slides, watch candy cane hula hoopers, and even jelly bean jugglers! There’s a plethora of Christmas events for your whole family to enjoy.
  • Sarasota Christmas Boat Parade of Lights: Celebrate the 34th annual Sarasota Christmas Boat Parade of Lights from inside Marina Jacks Restaurant. You’ll see boats decked head to toe in luminescent lights. This holiday event presents some of the best Christmas lights in Florida! 

Forget About Hosting Holidays

When is the last time you were able to have a relaxing holiday season when you were in charge of hosting? Probably never. When spending Christmas in Florida, you can leave the worries of cleaning, cooking, and people-pleasing behind. Southwest Florida has several top-notch restaurants to keep even the pickiest of eaters happy. As for cleaning, leave the mess behind. Mi Casa es Su Casa.
