Christmas is a wonderful time to visit Florida, be it in Amelia Island or Key West, Tallahassee or Naples. Florida Bed and Breakfasts across the state welcome old friends and new during this special time.

There is snow in Orlando (only in designated areas of course) and a holiday light show at the Miami Seaquarium. There are walking and garden tours in historic Naples, and a St. Nick Open Golf Tournament in St. Petersburg. Historic St. Augustine is lit by more than two million tiny white lights each night – the perfect place to stroll with the person you love.

Christmas means beach parties in Key West and dancing in Miami. It means karaoke and theatre performances in Sarasota. Christmas means tours of festively decorated holiday homes in Ormond Beach and Deland, and ice skating with Santa in Daytona.

If you’re looking for something different this holiday season, head to Florida for Christmas. Instead of plowing the driveway on Christmas day, take a long walk on the beach. Instead of skiing, swim. Give yourself a gift this year: vacation in a Bed and Breakfast Florida.
