A Family-Friendly Christmas in the Florida Keys
The holidays are right around the corner, and with them comes a lot of stress for many people. The colder weather, the storms, the crowds, the shopping and the mile-long to-do list all add up to an immeasurable amount of pressure for families around the country. This year, maybe it’s time for something different. Take your holiday somewhere warmer, sunnier and less stressful. For a Christmas to remember, you need a family vacation at Mangrove Marina.
Dreaming of a White Christmas in the Florida Keys
While Florida might not seem like a top destination for a white Christmas, the smooth, bright sands of the beaches in the Keys might have you thinking again. The sheltered Keys are protected from the rough waves, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have their share of beautiful beaches, such as Bahia Honda near Key West’s 7 Mile Bridge. The sands are white, the breezes are gentle and the waving palms are as festive as any Christmas tree.
Jingle All the Way around Tavernier
No family-friendly holiday would be complete without fun, festive activities, and the Florida Keys are jam-packed with adventures for people of all ages.
Some of the best options are not far from Mangrove Marina, including:
• Boat rentals
• Kayaking and paddleboarding
• Sunset cruises
• Jet skiing
• Fishing charters
• Diving and snorkeling charters
• Glass-bottomed boats
Key Largo has other exciting activities, too, including John Penne Kamp State Park, Key Largo Dolphin Habitat, Harry Harris State Park and the Islamorada State Park.
Deck the Halls in Houseboat Rentals Tavernier
Is there any better way to wake up Christmas morning than snuggled up in a cozy houseboat? Our spacious luxury houseboat rentals Tavernier can take your holidays to the next level. You can unwrap presents while watching the sunrise over the clear bay waters and sip coffee from your balcony while the kids watch their favorite Christmas movies. There will be plenty to keep your family occupied on board or off, with lots of special amenities such as our heated freshwater pool, tiki huts, and BBQ facilities.
Here We Come A-Wassailing
While we don’t really “go wassailing” today, we do enjoy eating, drinking and making merry around the holidays. Keep that custom alive with your choice of curated wines, beers, and drafts at Tavernier’s own Fin & Juice Bar. During the daytime, feast on the Keys’ best flavors at some of Mangrove Marina’s favorite restaurants, including:
• Cafe Moka
• The Original Mrs. Mac’s
• City Hall Cafe
• Key Largo Fisheries
• Skippers Dockside
• The Catch
• The Blonde Giraffe Key Lime Pie Factory
May Your Days Be Merry and Bright
While the rest of the country hunkers down under blankets of snow and threats of ice, Florida settles in for some of its best weather yet. December in Florida is known for being pleasant, sunny and dry, with daytime temperatures hovering in the mid-70s. There are virtually no clouds on the horizon to block Santa or his sleigh from Christmas in the Florida Keys.
