Two Florida Destinations Named Among The Best December Trips
December is often a month of heavy travel to take a holiday trips, to visit a festive landmark, friends or family. However, Fifty Grande recently published the best places to go in December for a relaxing vacation and two Florida destinations made the list.
“There are more than enough climate zones and far-flung destinations to accommodate every Scrooge, snow bunny and family dinner flight risk,” Fifty Grande states.
At this point, most travelers have already made December plans and have tickets in hand for any major trips. Nonetheless, the spontaneous spur-of-the-moment escape is still increasingly popular. What do you look for when the thrill of a quick getaway calls? Ideally, you are heading to a place of ultimate relaxation. In fact, often the climate of the place you seek is opposite of what you are experiencing at home. Therefore, you need a place that offers that variety but is still close enough that you don’t have to spend two of the days wrapped up in traveling.
This Fifty Grande report showcases how America has many outstanding options of places like Florida that will do that trick for those looking for a quick December vacation. There are snow-covered places (like Colorado) for those who want a jump on the ski season. Then, there are sunny beaches where you can sip frozen island drinks to completely unwind before you turn the calendar to a new year.
So, here are your Florida options.
Miami ranked number five. Specifically, Art Basel was called out as a unique December event to consider. This year, Art Basel, one of the largest annual art gallery events in the country, takes place December 8-10 in Miami Beach. In addition, there are numerous beachside properties that allow visitors to arrive and stay put for the complete duration of their trip.
Key West then ranked number three. Fifty Grande suggests, “Visit ten native habitat spots along the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, including the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, where you can scuba and kayak to your heart’s content.” Key West in December is the perfect blend of excursion and relaxation. You can fly directly to Key West from multiple major cities or fly to South Florida and drive the keys to end up at this ultimate December vacation spot.
