With fun holiday activities like our beloved “Surfing Santas,” it’s no surprise that popular lifestyle website Popsugar included our very own Cocoa Beach in their recent roundup of 15 different and fun holiday destinations for families seeking a magical escape this holiday season.
For a warm holiday to remember, wrote contributor Sarah Muoio, mom and dad will win over the kids with a visit here to see larger-than-life stilt walkers, enjoy a beautiful boat parade, and even build a sandman on the beach. (Because, let’s face it, a snowman just won’t do.)
She also made note of the merriest holiday event of them all on the Space Coast, the annual “Surfing Santas” extravaganza.
Joining Cocoa Beach on Muoio’s list are the aptly named North Pole (Alaska) and Santa’s Village (New Hampshire), as well as the famous tree lighting up at New York’s Rockefeller Center.
We can expect to welcome several holly-jolly seeking tourists throughout the coming weeks, which in turn will offer a boost to many local businesses. You can’t get much-more “Christmasy” than that!
