Christmas Activities in the Rosemary Beach Community
Florida’s year-round warmth and sun is what makes it a getaway no matter when you need a break. Christmas in the Rosemary Beach community and the surrounding area is a special time of year. A stroll on the beach is always a must, but when the water is a bit too cold for a swim – the water can be anywhere from 57-64 degrees in the winter months – there are plenty of other Christmastime activities to enjoy.
The Rosemary Beach community’s town center is lit up from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. Come enjoy the beautiful lights and take a few pictures among the festive scenery. The Christmas tree is a popular spot, but you’ll also find colorful décor throughout the town such as a festive train and much more!
Although the water might be cold, outdoor activities that leave you with a sunburn in the summertime will be much more easygoing with the cooler weather of Christmastime. Take a hike or go biking down the many trails the area has to offer. Watching the sunset over the horizon in winter is a can’t miss beautiful end to a Christmastime beach getaway. There are many state parks and coastal dunes to explore just a short trip from the Rosemary Beach community.
Deer Lake State Park and Camp Helen State Park are two nearby natural areas that offer plenty of room to roam. The Rosemary Beach area is known for its coastal dune lakes, a rare geographical feature that occurs in the US only along the Gulf Coast. The park offers two different trails for enjoying the sights of Deer Lake, as well as the area’s native plants and fauna. A boardwalk to the dunes offers easy access to this stretch of sugary white sand coastline. Home to the largest coastal dune lake in the state, Camp Helen State Park offers another opportunity for exploring this unique phenomenon. With the comfort of milder winter weather, your day appreciating nature, hiking, and fishing will be thoroughly enjoyed.
The Rosemary Beach community offers four distinct swimming pools for use. No matter the weather, the Sky Pool provides a great place to take a dip on a winter day. This all-season swimming pool boasts a motorized roof that opens and closes so that the interior can always be kept at the desired temperature. Even when closed, the beautiful glass roof allows plenty of natural sunlight to stream in, creating a comfortable atmosphere for spending a few hours poolside or swimming laps.
Offset those holiday indulgences by staying active throughout your time in Rosemary Beach. The Rosemary Beach community offers an upscale fitness center complete with modern equipment and fitness classes to keep you motivated throughout the holiday season. Rosemary Beach is situated along the eastern end of the renowned Timpoochee Trail, which extends for over 18 miles in total. Rent bikes or use the complimentary bike rentals that are available at select rentals and head west with plenty of mileage in front of you ripe for exploration. The trail passes through beaches and coastal areas, offering multiple places to stop along the way.
Area restaurants may offer special Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinners. These special meals often require reservations, so make sure to call in advance to secure your plate of Christmas favorites like turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and apple pie. If you’d like to dine in the privacy of your vacation rental, ask about pick-up and delivery service.
Check out the Seaside Repertory Theatre’s schedule for what may be on stage. Shows like “Every Christmas Story Ever Told” and other popular Christmas shows have been seen on stage at the theatre’s 75 seat venue. They may also be taking their talents out on the town.
