Who says the holidays have to include snowmen and fireplaces?
Escape the chilly winter this year and celebrate in your swimsuit instead! Head to Fort Lauderdale for a holiday vacation that includes boat parades, enchanted forests, and more. There are plenty of activities to get everyone in the holiday spirit the Florida way!
1. The Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade
The Winterfest Boat Parade is an annual tradition in Fort Lauderdale that draws more than a million viewers along the 12-mile route each year.
The best place to watch the parade is from the Las Olas Intracoastal Promenade Park where a Parade Viewing Area will be set up. You can enjoy live entertainment before and after the parade!
2. Holiday Lights Cruise
The waterfront mansions on “Millionaire’s Row” in Miami are always beautiful. But wait until you see them lit up for the holidays!
3. Santa’s Enchanted Forest
Santa’s Enchanted Forest is best-known as the “World’s Largest Holiday Theme Park” – and with good reason. It hosts over 100 rides, shows, games, and attractions!
Plan to spend your whole evening here in Miami as the forest takes up more than 40 acres. Make sure to go at night so you can fully appreciate the dazzling light displays featured throughout the venue.
4. Soak Up Sun at the Beach
How about a sand angel? The beaches of south Florida are some of the best in the country, and with temperatures in the 70s and 80s throughout winter, every day is a beach day!
5. Get in a Holiday Workout – On the Beach
Eating too many holiday treats and want to do a little exercise? How about a gym with a view?
Calisthenics Park at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park offers a wide array of equipment for a full body burn and a prime waterfront view.
