A warm Florida Christmas is a very different experience than the cold Colorado Christmas I’ve come to love and enjoy. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to drive around town looking at beautiful Christmas lights that adorn the neighborhood houses. When you have a canal in your backyard…the focus becomes the backyard decor, not the front yard. Taking a quiet boat ride around the canal is a whole new experience while looking at the backyard decor of the neighborhood. Start your exploration out with a Punta Gorda sunset and it’s an experience not to miss.
