As you flip the calendar pages to a new month, the thought of Christmas (which is always right around the corner!) may send a shiver up your spine, and not just because of the cold days and nights that accompany the holiday. It may bring up memories of previous holidays in which you spent far too much money, time, and energy trying to make Christmas special for everyone, when all you really had to do was bring the family to Florida—the Fort Walton Beach area, to be more precise! Offering balmy temperatures and a laidback environment that takes the stress out of your favorite holiday, it’s time to start a new Fort Walton Beach Christmas tradition, one that begins with a stay in one of the merry and cheerful condos from The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach!
Visions of Palm Trees Swaying in the Breeze – Fort Walton Beach Christmas
The traditional Christmas carol discusses sugar plums, but we’re adults now, and as you fall asleep on Christmas Eve nestled snugly in one of our condos, you’ll be dreaming of a white sand Fort Walton Beach Christmas! Wake up early to open presents and watch the sun rise over the Gulf, and because the temperatures will still be in the 60s or even 70s, you can stay as long as you like; soak in the rays, watch the palm trees you were dreaming about last night sway in the breeze, and listen to the music of the emerald seas as they splash against the beach.
Your Christmas Feast
Your options for a traditional Christmas dinner are many—from preparing the entire meal in the fully equipped kitchen of your condo to ordering an already prepared dinner from the Fresh Market in Plantation Plaza, to enjoying a special meal from one of the many restaurants open for the holiday! The Back Porch at 1740 Scenic Highway 98 in Destin has traditionally been a local favorite, offering a special Christmas feast and a view of the Gulf that we can never get tired of, but any of the restaurants that stay open are wonderful!
Lights, Camera, Action!
As far as activities, there is no shortage of fun things to do during a Fort Walton Beach Christmas! The Destin Boat Parade (HarborWalk Village) offers a unique opportunity to see the Christmas lights; local boats are decorated in their most festive holiday décor for your Christmas pleasure! Your beloved children can have their pictures taken with Santa at any of the local malls. Add in moonlight walks on the beach, sunset dolphin cruises, and fishing adventures off the Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier and your Christmas in Fort Walton Beach becomes a truly magical experience!
