Starting in the beginning of December, holiday festivals and events start taking over Islamorada. There are few places in the United States that are still in their beach weather prime. Congratulate yourself, you have escaped the cold. However, that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your holiday cheer. Starting in the beginning of December, holiday festivals and events start taking over Islamorada. Here are a few of our faves:
