Even in December, most of Florida enjoys mild temperatures making the state ideal for a white Christmas comprised of sand and not snow. In addition to beach destinations, travelers can visit Walt Disney World, which is decked out in true, over-the-top Disney style. Take the kids to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party or to see Epcot's Candlelight Processional.

For holidays with a Latin flavor, head to Christmas in Miami. In the weeks leading up to December 25th, boat parades and festive light displays in many cities across the state, such as the Night of Lights in St. Augustine.  

Another great reason to visit Florida is to literally visit Christmas, a little town near Orlando that has become a favorite place for people to mail out gifts with a unique postmark.
