Getting in the holiday spirit in Florida certainly isn't easy; it's always a green Christmas, but that's the price you pay to live in paradise. This year feeling that holly & jolly will be easier at the world's largest Christmas light maze, Enchant St. Pete. — and they're even gonna let it snow!
This magical event will light up St. Pete's Tropicana Field starting this November 22nd and will run until December 29th, blessing us with a full month of that beloved Christmas Spirit & tons of fun activities aside from their 90,000 square foot maze of lights.
As you wander the illuminated labyrinth with lit-up Christmas Sculptures, carolers, and other Christmas entertainment, you'll be on the hunt for Santa's 9 reindeer — all while the snow gently falls around you. You can even grab a hot chocolate and feel all cozy and cute; you'd almost think it was actually winter in the Sunshine State.
Be a sugar plum fairy and skate through the magical ice skating trail, gliding through all the twinkling lights and decorations. You can bring own skates with guards on and in a clear plastic bag, or rent a pair on-site.
One of our favorite parts of the holidays is eating; grab something savory or sweet from the Christmas Market to feast on seasonal bites and drinks. They even offer a VIP dining lounge and the chance to 'enchant' your meals with tailor-made treats.
If you don't know what to get someone for Christmas, take advantage of the nook and cranny, where you can make Christmas ornaments, home decor, and more. You can even see Santa after wandering through the forest up to Santa's Landing and head to the kid's zone to play, color, and more if you happen to have kids.
General admission tickets start at $19.99 and go up to $32.99 depending on which day you go. They also offer VIP tickets for $74.99-84.99 or a season pass to go every day of the event for $70.99.
Whether you're there to skate, wander the sea of lights, or indulge on all those holiday treats, it'll feel a lot like Christmas at Enchant St. Pete.
