Ride your sleigh (or car) to amazing South Florida celebrations that are warming in all the right ways! From the dazzling Miami Metro Zoo lights, to Santa’s Enchanted Forest–the world’s largest holiday theme park–you won’t want to miss out on any of this festive fun. And great news, all of Lennar’s beautiful communities are within easy access of these exciting destinations. Here are 4 merry things you can do with family (and become the favorite!) this season.
1. Check Out Local Attractions
A must-see local attraction is Jungle Island, an interactive eco-adventure park, currently featuring an oversized candy-cane jungle, photos with Santa and wildlife, and a daily parade. The whole family will also love the Miami Metro Zoo’s holiday light spectacular, boasting more than half a million animal-shaped lights, hot chocolate, and the world’s largest inflatable slide–shaped like a hippo! Residents of Lennar’s Galiano Estates can even take advantage of their proximity to this magical destination and acquire annual passes. Last but not least, check out the Nights of Lights event at Pinecrest Gardens, which turns the park into an illuminated winter wonderland.
2. Visit the World’s Largest Holiday Theme Park
All year long, South Floridians wait for Santa’s Enchanted Forest to put up their thrilling rides and millions of lights–offering fun for the whole family. Take photos with the many displays–make sure not to miss the one of Santa surfing–and in front of South Florida’s biggest decorated tree for an extra bright holiday moment! Catch the exhilarating motorcycle show, featuring can’t-miss extreme stunts. And we advise going on your favorite rides before enjoying the mouthwatering carnival food and irresistible sweet treats, including elephant ears, fried Oreos, and cotton candy!
3. Capture Special Moments Effortlessly
For residents of Lennar’s amenity-rich communities, there are many opportunities to create unforgettable family holiday memories. A poolside get-together with bathing suits, Santa hats, and eggnog can be a festive and fun way to share the merry spirit. Certain communities lend themselves to more specific activities: for example, gorgeous Satori in Miami Lakes, with its zen-inspired gardens, is the ideal backdrop for a photoshoot. Don’t your favorite holiday outfit and strike a cheerful pose!
Or at Park Central, a Lennar community in Doral, large green spaces are the perfect backdrop for a holiday-themed picnic, featuring sandwiches with leftover turkey, followed by exciting family games, such as a Scavenger Hunt and Balloon Toss.
4. Discover a New Way to Holiday
Along with the comfortable South Florida weather, Lennar communities offer ideal spaces for fresh (literally!) holiday traditions. With winter weather that is neither too hot nor too cool, as well as the lush beauty of our tropical setting, you’ll want to spend plenty of time outdoors. Why not shake things up a bit this year and open gifts outside? That way, when the kids want to try their new bikes or pilot their remote-controlled toys, you’re already in the great outdoors! Decorate your stunning terrace with fresh garlands and twinkling lights, play seasonal music to set the mood, mix some festive drinks, and toast under the stars! This new way to holiday is sure to become a beloved family favorite
From our entire Lennar family, we wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful New Year!
