If you’re a fan of the arts, you’ll definitely want to check out Art on the House, where you can find tons of dazzling art exhibits every Friday from 4pm to 8pm until December 29th. You might also like a trip to Stageworks Theater to see the Tony-winning musical Avenue Q, but make it quick—the last performance is on December 22nd!
For something more Christmas-themed, take a Christmas Lights Limo Tour around the city from now until December 29th. You can even customize the tour with particular destinations you’re interested in. Or, stroll through Christmas Town in Busch Gardens, which will be up through December 31st.
One unique event taking place on December 30th is Harry Potter and the Camber of Secrets in Concert, a showing of the film that will feature the Florida Orchestra playing the gorgeous soundtrack by John Williams along with the film.
