The temperature won’t drop below freezing in Florida this holiday season, but that won’t stop local residents and visitors from enjoying a white Christmas. Whether you’re staying at a nearby resort or renting a beach cottage for the off-season, the Destin Chamber of Commerce welcomes everyone to enjoy the lights and holiday festivities at the Coastal White Christmas at Grand Blvd. events. With multiple events planned for Friday and Saturday nights in November and December, the Town Center will be open to those ready to experience holiday cheer at its finest.
A Winter Wonderland
Thousands of twinkling lights will illuminate Town Center as faux snow falls from the sky while people everywhere embrace the holiday season. Guests will enjoy a free horse-drawn carriage ride for the best view of the dazzling decorations and the Festival of Trees display in the center of town. The Emerald Coast Theatre Company’s Dickensian Carolers will serenade crowds by singing all the holiday favorites. Sing along between bites of good food and soak in the feeling of being part of a community that values its residents and visitors alike. Many resorts provide transportation into town, and you can spend the night immersed in southern culture.
