It’s hard to believe that the holidays are here and soon it will be Christmas and New Year’s. This year instead of staying at home for the holidays, take a vacation to Atlantic Beach. Staying in one of our Atlantic Beach rentals and your family will be close to many of the activities happening around town. Let’s look at a few of the things that you and the family can do while on vacation in December.
13th Annual Light Up the Night Christmas Parade
Are you looking forward to spending the holidays here at the beach but not sure what to do? Join in the 13th Annual Light Up the Night Christmas Parade happening on December 6th in Atlantic Beach. This year will be a little different and yet just as exciting as the previous years. The parade will feature several new parade floats and even a new route too. Be ready to kick off the holiday season with the family while sitting and watching the parade at 6:00 pm. After the parade you will be able to shop a little, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, and live carolers. Don’t miss this fun event happening right here in Atlantic Beach with the family!
