Spending the holiday season at home is always comforting. However, if you own real estate or have access to one of the many luxury homes in south Florida, there’s no better place to take advantage of the year-round beautiful weather and holiday attractions than in Miami. Just as there are great locations to visit over Thanksgiving, south Florida offers a number of holiday- and Christmas-friendly activities.
If you’re entertaining holiday guests this year, you probably already have a few ideas of where to take them. They can gaze upon the tallest Christmas tree in southern Florida or kick back on the shore to enjoy the beautiful, bright sight of the seasonally decorated boat show during the annual Christmas parade. Enjoy the seemingly endless holiday shopping and dining, plus a beautiful place to retire at night in a Miami luxury home.
If you need more ideas, the following is a list of attractions perfect for showing holiday guests a great time in the Miami area:
1) Hotel Indigo: Miami Dadeland
Location: 7600 N. Kendall Drive
Miami, FL 33156
There are a number of hotels to accommodate the high number of tourists and business visitors who come to the popular city of Miami, but few may fall within your or your visitors’ price range. However, Hotel Indigo is a boutique-style hotel featuring a beautiful outdoor patio, which allows you to soak up the infamous Miami sun. The hotel’s rooms offer the option of a king or twin-size bed, a desk and space for visitors to comfortably stretch out and relax. The most notable perk, however, is Hotel Indigo is located only minutes from Santa’s Enchanted Forest, offering great walkability and removing the stress of parking at a large Miami attraction from the equation.
2) Kaluz Restaurant
Location: 3300 E. Commercial Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
Kaluz Restaurant offers the best of both worlds. It features the fusion of scenic intracoastal views and a splash of Christmas beauty.

This amazing coastal event is a seasonal festival featuring strikingly decorated yachts and sailboats making their way down the New River and Intracoastal Waterway.
