Just because you won't see a white Christmas along the Emerald Coast, doesn't mean we don't know how to get in the spirit! Below, find some local favorites for shopping and fun during the holidays at the beach.

One stop shop (and more) for the whole family

Grand Boulevard shopping center has it all this holiday season. Knock out your holiday shopping at the many shops - including Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Chubbies, Orvis, and the Zoo Gallery (just to name a few), there really is something your everyone on your list. You can end your shopping trip with dinner or a glass of wine at one of the many restaurants (Vintij is a new (old) local favorite and must try!). You can also take a stroll through the beautiful lighted Christmas tree installation or enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride on the weekends with the family.

Grayt Santa Pub Crawl

Enjoy some adult fun and local food/drink at the Grayt Santa Pub Crawl in the quirky and spirited neighborhood of Grayton Beach. Make your way around to participating bars and restaurants for food and drink specials, a costume contest, and holiday cheer. It's also supports a good cause as proceeds benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

A Show at the Seaside REP

The Seaside REP Theater presents "Every Christmas Story Ever Told...and Then Some" - a Christmas themed show for the whole family! Showtimes all month long.

Cafe 30a Charity Christmas Ball

Have a festive night out - and all for a good cause. Cafe 30a hosts it's annual event benefitting Caring and Sharing of South Walton. Guests will enjoy food, drinks, music, as well as a silent auction and raffle in a beautiful setting. Feel free to dress to impress in your best holiday attire, as the dress code is black tie optional. See more details with the link below.

We keep the holidays festive at the beach in our own way, and these are just a few of the events that will be going on locally. Enjoy the special time (and hopefully warm weather) with your family and loved ones. Happy Holidays!
