The Christmas holidays are a wonderful time for families to bond and have fun together. While that’s all good and fun to do at home, now and then, it helps to break tradition and spend your holidays together in a new location. About 4.7 million Brits plan on spending their Christmas holidays abroad. Florida has a lot to offer if you’re looking for a great destination this season. Here are some of the best reasons to spend your Christmas holidays in America’s Sunshine State.
- The weather
The US landscape is vast, and many areas experience cold weather and severe snow during the winter months. But not Florida! What makes it an amazing destination to visit is that it has year-round sunny weather. It might not be as warm as the summer months, but it sure beats spending your holidays in the cold. Because of Florida’s warm climate, it’s the perfect place for you and your family to do some of the best outdoor activities. And you’ll get to show off some skin since you wouldn’t have to bundle up or worry about the weather. It’s a great time to hit the beach, explore its beautiful towns and cities, and have an amazing time.
- The attractions
Florida is home to some of the United States popular attractions, notably the Walt Disney World theme park. While visiting this Christmas, you and your family can catch the newest Disney World rides and have a great time interacting with your favourite Disney characters. If you’re a film buff, you must head to Universal Studios to see where some of your best Hollywood films were shot and get behind-the-scenes looks into how movie sets are created. If you’re in Miami, you can also check out the famous Miami Beach and the Art Deco Historic District. For a more rugged adventure, you and your family would enjoy a trip to the Everglades, where you can spot Florida’s native alligators and other popular wildlife.
- The nightlife
When travelling with your family, your chosen destination’s nightlife may not be at the top of your list. However, when you’re in Florida, it’s something worth experiencing. Spend time away from your kids, alone or with your spouse, to experience an amazing evening out in town. Miami has some of the best nightlife and tons of clubs, concerts, restaurants, and other fun events you must try. If the clubbing scene is not to your taste, you can even go night fishing! It would be best to speak with the locals for the best information on how to enjoy your time in town. They would show you more authentic places that aren’t tourist traps, and you can fully immerse yourself in the Floridian nightlife.
The beauty of Florida is that it is just as amazing as it is in the summer during winter. You will not be at a loss for activities. Even better, rent a car to travel to some of its best cities and towns for a well-rounded experience. If you haven’t started your Christmas travel plans, it’s time to start now and with Florida in mind.
