If you live in the Palm Beach area, you already know about the abundant sunshine and warm weather – even during the holiday season. What you may not know is that there are plenty of great ways to celebrate this special time of year – even if there is nary a snowflake in sight.
The month of December is chock full of great events – some holiday themed and some not. Here is just a small sampling of the many things to see and do this December throughout the Palm Beach area.
Let Your Inner Foodie Play
You do not have to be a gourmet or a wine aficionado to enjoy the annual Palm Beach Food and Wine Fest. This year’s celebration takes place from December 10 through December 13, and it features award-winning chefs and culinary experts from around the world. Whether you want to see the latest trends in the foodie world, enjoy some of the best wines you will ever taste or just relax for an afternoon, the Palm Beach Food and Wine Fest is the place to be.
Take in a Football Game
The end of the year is football season, so it is only fitting that the Palm Beach area is hosting the Marmot Boca Raton Bowl. This year the bowl game takes place on December 22, so you can enjoy some great football with the family and still have time to finish your last-minute shopping. This clash of gridiron titans pits the best teams of the Mid-American conference and Conference USA against one another to determine once and for all who is the king of the pigskin.
Enjoy the Beauty of Nature
If you want to revel in the beauty of nature, you need to stop by the Nature Preserved exhibit at the Cultural Center of Palm Beach County. This wonderful venue is the perfect place to view works by artists such as Ingrid Barreneche, Isabel Gouveia, Kim Heise, Virginia McKinney and others. Designed to raise awareness of climate change and modern threats to the natural world, this stunning exhibit is sure to provoke some discussions on the way home.
The exhibit runs through January 2, so there is still time to take a look. If you are looking for something fun and culturally enriching to do this December, this exhibit is the perfect choice.
The West Palm Beach area is known for its beauty and abundant sunshine, but there are plenty of great things to see and do as well. As the month of December gets underway, you might need to make a list so you don’t miss out on any of these great activities.
