Some people dream of a white, snowy Christmas. If bone-chilling air, bulky snow boots, winter coats, scarves, gloves and hats are your thing, that’s okay. No judgment here. To each his own! It will come as no surprise to you that we here on the Gulf Coast of Florida prefer a different kind of holiday. You can still have a white Christmas here, but just be ready for it to be filled with white sugary sand as opposed to that wet, cold, white stuff found further north.
If you’re dreaming of a white sand Christmas, then we strongly urge you to come on down! The good news is that you can still enjoy all of the best parts of the holiday season without that pesky snow (well, the real kind anyway).
Gulf Coast Holiday Cheer
There’s plenty of holiday spirit to go around and seasonal activities abound. Get nestled in to your Gulf beach vacation rental, decorate your vacation-home-away-from-home with some fun and festive coastal Christmas ornaments, then head out to enjoy our white sand wonderland.
So, what is there to do? Well, you can read about our Gulf Coast holiday boat parades and find out everything you need to know about this signature coastal holiday event. You’ll also find the Gulf Coast Holiday Planning Guide useful too, as it highlights some of our favorite events this time of year.
It’s easy to fill your time with things to do, places to go, and sights to see this time of year. But one of the best parts of Christmas on the coast is the chance to relax a little bit more, slow down, put your toes in the sand, breathe in the salty air, and behold the beauty that surrounds you. A little sun, sand an surf never hurt anyone, right?
Gulf Coast Getaway
The holidays can be a whirlwind of planning, decorating, shopping and preparing. Before you know it, Christmas has come and gone and you didn’t even get a chance to truly enjoy it. You’re exhausted. You’re overextended. You’re stressed.
Sometimes a change in scenery is all you need to recharge. You know the saying: changes in latitude, changes in attitude. There’s truth to it. If you can’t get away during the holiday itself, consider a post-holiday getaway to the Gulf. We promise it will deliver just what you need to recover from the winter blues and the holiday hustle and bustle.
Our holiday wish for you this season is that you enjoy it to the fullest and that it is filled with family and friends, no matter where you choose to celebrate. We’d love to see you on the Gulf Coast shoreline this season, but if not now then soon. It’s never to early to start planning for your next beach vacation, is it? Read up on the Top 10 Winter Festivals and Events on the Gulf Coast and see what you may want to see and do during your time here.
On Demand Beach Access 24/7
If you can’t get away right now but are longing for some beach time, you can always check out our Indian Shores beach cam. It’s free and available to you any time you need a little break from anything or everything. Feel free to sit back, relax, and exhale while you enjoy the views. Aaaahhhhh. Live streaming gulf beach views right at your fingertips 24/7.
Cheers to Christmas on the Gulf Coast or anywhere your holiday adventures take you!
