We may never have a white Christmas, unless the snow is fake, and chestnut roasting on an open fire are unlikely. But despite our tropical winter weather, or maybe because of it, South Florida goes all out for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the winter holiday season.
Palm trees look great in holiday lights, as do zoos, entertainment complexes and, of course, homes in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. We have boat parades as well as land parades, holiday concerts inside and outside, festivals, family fun, visits from Santa and even snow, though we know it is fake.
To help you enjoy the holiday season in South Florida, we have compiled a mega day-by-day list of all the free and cheap holidays events in South Florida. We also have found some discounts on more expensive holiday events.
If you are looking for county-specific information, we also have big lists of free and cheap holiday events in Miami-Dade, free and cheap holiday events in Broward and free and cheap holiday events in Palm Beach County.
And some of those events are worth traveling for!
