Enjoy Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches for the Holidays

From a parachuting Santa to twinkling lights, Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches is even more enchanting at Christmas. Check out these five reasons why we love spending the holidays in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.

1. Santa Claus is SkyDivin’ to Town



Sure, Santa could use his sleigh—but in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches, the jolly elf’s grand entrance is infinitely cooler. The Big Guy makes a splash by parachuting onto the beach during the annual Flagler Beach Christmas Parade. The 2022 parade took place on Saturday, December 3rd, but plan ahead for next year!  Because Santa is here!

2. Good Tide-ings We Bring



We might be biased, but we’d rather be warm on the beach than cold on the slopes. Swap the snow for saltwater…and all the fun that comes with it. Ride the waves with a rental board from Z Wave Surf Shop, kayak through pristine waterways with Ripple Effect EcoTours, or reel in a big catch on a local fishing charter. From ocean to inlet, the waterways are a gift to you this holiday season.

3. Making Spirits Bright



With everything from twinkling lights to adorable inflatables, Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches is beautifully trimmed this time of year. In Flagler Beach, local homes, businesses, and landmarks are illuminated each evening with festive lighting and décor as part of the annual Starry Nights event in December. In Palm Coast, a large Christmas tree and light displays decorate Central Park in Town Center. Each city holds its own lighting ceremony—so be sure to check this calendar for the 2022 dates.

4. Baby, It’s Warm Outside



With temperatures consistently in the low 70s, December is an ideal time to visit Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. It truly is the most wonderful time of year to dine and play outdoors. Just remember to leave the coat at home—you’ll be more than comfortable in shorts and flip-flops. Peek at the current temps.

5. Eat, Drink, and Be Merry



Sweet treats, specialty cocktails, and of course, plenty of mouthwatering seafood. Local joints like The Funky Pelican and Vessel Sandwich Co. whip up seasonal drinks and entrees using festive flavors.
