Fun Things To Do for the Holidays in Palm Beach County

Fun Things to do for the Holidays

Christmas Tree Lighting

The holiday season is just around the corner. When it comes to celebrating the season to be jolly, Palm Beach County offers a variety of fun things to do! There are many activities all around Palm Beach County and many are free to enjoy. Florida does the holiday season a little differently as we enjoy warm temperatures and sand instead of the snow. This season, be sure to see Sandi, the world’s only 700-ton sand tree, view the decorated boats in the boat parade, experience the famous 100-foot Christmas tree in Delray Beach, take a ride in the Polar Express, and so much more! All of these will help you get into the holiday spirit.

Here are some activities and events available this holiday season in Palm Beach County.
