Central Florida in December is a wonderful time of year. While most of the country is seeking shelter and bundling up, communities across central Florida – including Ocala, Auburndale, and Bowling Green – are boastfully basking in the comfortable temperatures and year-round sunlight. Beaches, theme parks, and outdoor recreation – it's all still in play in the Sunshine State.

One of the easiest ways to see the Florida countryside is by embarking on a scenic driving tour. The Jacksonville and North Central Florida tour is especially welcoming, visiting some of central FL’s top attractions.

When December rolls around, Orlando and central Florida celebrate the holidays with fantastic events including Epcot’s Holidays Around the World, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, and Downtown Disney’s Festival of the Seasons. Experience the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or visit LEGOLAND Florida for Christmas Bricktacular. You can even celebrate the season with the underwater world at SeaWorld Orlando’s 2016 Christmas Celebration. 

Beginning in early summer, the Kissimmee Valley Farmer’s Market brings locally grown produce and handcrafted gifts and goods to downtown Kissimmee through December 28th. The market opens at 3 p.m. each and every Tuesday.

Sports fans, you’ll want to visit Orlando this early spring season. Events like the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl will draw football fans from all over. The 70th annual iteration will feature the top teams from the Southeastern Conference and Big Ten Conference in a New Year’s Eve prime time matchup at Camping World Stadium.

Then, if a few things break right, the 2017 Orlando Magic should be making a mid season playoff push at the Amway Center.  Young up-and-comers like Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier will join with veterans Serge Ibaka and Jeff Green for what should be an exciting season. The Magic will play 41 home games this year from late October through mid April.

Baseball fans already know, but the MLB’s 2017 Grapefruit League is one of the most anticipated events in central Florida each year. Teams get ripe and ready for the upcoming season at venues in Lake Buena Vista, Kissimmee, and others.
