Trade in the busy malls and bitter cold for a quiet holiday on the pristine, uncrowded shores of the Gulf when you spend the holiday season with us in Navarre Beach! Get away from the holiday stress, swap your bulky coats for a warm fleece and sunglasses, and plan your holiday in Florida’s Most Relaxing Place. Just don’t forget to tell Santa that you’ll be in Florida this year!
During December, the average temperatures in Navarre reach highs in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 40s. It’s ideal weather for strolling along the shore and watching the whitecaps, searching for souvenir shells and snapping some beach photos. Afterwards, you’ll love curling up by the fireplace of a cozy beachfront vacation rental or soaking up holiday cheer in the festive lobbies of the Springhill Suites by Marriott, Best Western Navarre Waterfront and other local hotels. A short drive inland from the beach will bring you to the enchanting woodland areas of the Blackwater River State Forest and historic Milton. Here you can enjoy comfy winter walks outdoors or try a little antiquing at the shops.
The county also hosts charming seasonal events such as the Gulf Breeze Zoo’s Christmas ZOObilee, which showcases winter-themed bounce stations, live music and entertainment, a Candy Cane Market full of unique gifts from local artists, as well as other sights, smells, and tastes of the season. Fun for the entire family, the Christmas ZOObilee wouldn’t be complete without weekend visits from Santa (and the Grinch)! Plus, more holiday events are scheduled closer to the holidays, so be ready to bring all your holiday cheer.
So don’t let dreams of a laid back holiday without the crowds or the stress be all in your head. Join us in Navarre Beach for the perfect holiday getaway.
