Christmas is an important and often magical time of year for those that love the holidays. It’s a moment on the calendar set aside for gathering with friends and loved ones to celebrate meaningful time together that often turn into memories made to last a lifetime.
While it’s fair to say that Christmas in 2020 might not be the same as years past, that simply doesn’t mean it can’t be just as incredible. Those looking to avoid hosting at home this year while still maintaining a sense of holiday magic will find everything they’re looking for and more when they book a Christmas in Orlando, Florida.
Gather up your loved ones and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime when your Christmas travel plans bring you this way. While Orlando is home to Disney magic, it’s also a place where a variety of other activities and fun can be enjoyed in the spirit of the season too!
An Ideal Christmas Destination
Orlando is a sprawling city in the center of the state that sits well within reach of the coast. Those that decide to swap out traditional holidays at home for a fun Orlando adventure will also be swapping out cold weather for mild-weather wonders! The average temperature in Orlando in the winter tends to hang around the mid-70s—providing visitors with every reason and motivation to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. While Disney theme parks come to mind when Orlando is mentioned, this destination is also home to a vibrant downtown scene and plenty of points of natural beauty to be savored and explored.
Activities to Enjoy Over Christmas in Orlando
Many of those traditional and iconic Disney Christmas events have been called off in 2020 in the name of keeping visitors healthy and safe, but that doesn’t mean the Christmas spirit is canceled. Visitors to Orlando this time of year will still be able to see an impressive light display across the major theme parks, as well as landmarks like Cinderella’s Castle, decked out in their holiday best. Taking a drive through some of Orlando’s largest neighborhoods is sure to offer up some spectacular light displays to admire as well.
When you’re looking to be inspired by nature during your Christmas getaway, a stroll through the Harry P. Leu Gardens is always a good idea. This infamous Orlando botanic garden features mesmerizing ponds, green spaces, and floral arrangements that feature combinations of local and global plant and flower species. A stop here also puts visitors in proximity to a 19th century home that’s as beautiful as it is impressive.
If on the water fun is more your holiday style, enjoy a leisurely sail via swan boat at Lake Eola Park. This oasis of tranquility in the heart of downtown means you can always follow up your afternoon fun with stops at local restaurants and storefronts to take care of that last-minute Christmas shopping.
When you’re in the mood to people-watch, walk or stop into museums and restaurants that are one of a kind in the city, plan on spending some time on International Drive this Christmas.
