We feel like winter break can go two ways:

  1. Overwhelmingly too fast from doing so many activities and traveling to visit multiple relatives over the holidays.
  2. Or, agonizingly slow, either because the holidays can’t come fast enough, or because you don’t have much to do at all, so you end up bored at home.

So, whether you’re looking for things to do with your relatives, or just need to do something to pass the time, we have a few ideas on how to make your winter break one for the books.

Have a Winter Family Olympics Week

Let the games begin! Prepare a family-friendly competition for each night of the week. From Gingerbread house decorating to Holiday-themed Bingo, to a paper snowflake-making challenge, rack up the points and see who has the most medals at the end of the week. The winner gets bragging rights until the next family Olympics during summertime!

Have an All-Out Bonfire and Movie Night

While it may not get super cold here in Central Florida, we still like to take advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures whenever we can! Grab or find a video projector, a bonfire pit, and all the snacks. Pick from a Christmas classic, or just your go-to feel-good film suited for the whole family to put on a blank wall outside, or even in your living room. The fire pit will keep your toes nice and warm, and hopefully be used to roast some marshmallows. Our favorite part: build the ultimate hot cocoa bar. Make a tray with all the toppings and fixings you can think of that will satisfy every guest! We recommend mini marshmallows (of course), mini chocolate chips, cinnamon sticks, crushed candy cane bits, whipped cream, toffee or other chocolate bar crumbles, and all the sauces your heart desires.

Get Outside

If you’re staying local over the holidays, we recommend you take advantage of the time of year that won’t leave you sweating and looking like a red-hot pepper. Go for walks with the family, see who can build the best sandman at the beach, and or have a nice picnic at the park. If you’re traveling up north for the holidays, try a snowshoe hike, build a real snowman, make snow angels, or take a go at skiing or snowboarding with a class at a ski resort if there’s one in the area. Smell the crisp, winter air!

Donate to Those in Need

‘Tis the season of giving! We all love shopping for our loved ones this time of year, but it’s also nice to think of those in not as fortunate positions and scenarios. Help your loved ones gather things that they don’t really use or see if you have any duplicates of non-perishables in your pantry. Drop them off at a local shelter or supply drive to give back to your community.

Go to Local Holiday Events

Nothing makes us feel more in the holiday spirit than participating in local activities! Find your local ice-skating rink, drive around and see light shows, and join us at Daytona Lagoon for some of our special winter festivities – in addition to our typical rides and family night activities. From Dec 20 to Dec 24, we are holding a Letters to Santa and Free Holiday Fun extravaganza! Kids ages 12 and under can enjoy arts and crafts stations, holiday music, coloring and activity sheets, and more.

If Christmas isn’t celebrated in your family, or even if it is, we invite you to our Noon Year’s Eve Party on Dec 31! Enjoy prizes, food specials, and a DJ along with a FREE Balloon Drop at 2pm!

We hope this helped you think of things to do in Daytona Beach, and we wish you a winter filled with merry and bright family fun from us at Daytona Lagoon. To learn more about all of our specials and events going on, click here.
