The holiday season in Florida is packed with unique events. For residents many events create a feeling of winter with artificial snow and ice carvings mixed with cooler temperatures.
Attend one of many holiday events listed here and consider visiting a Tree Farm to pick out your own made in Florida Christmas Tree.
Even in the winter months much of Florida is still relatively warm. A parade may be traditional with floats or it may be Boats decorated with lights cruising down the St Johns River in Jacksonville or the Intercoastal in Fort Lauderdale. And only in Florida can you going sailing and see Santa and Manatees.
Ice Carvings in Orlando
One of our favorite events is Ice at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando. Walk through life sized ice carvings of slides a candy house and more made with almost 2 million pounds of ice.
Big Parades and Fireworks
No holiday season is complete without a big parade and the Annual Gator Bowl Parade in Jacksonville is a big classic parade worth seeing. And right after the parade you can head down to Jacksonville Landing for an impressive fireworks display.
Ice Skating In St Augustine
St Augustine is known for great beaches, Flagler College, and Castillo De San Marcos but this holiday season the oldest city in America is transformed into a winter wonderland.
