It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches! High temperatures cool into the 70s, perfect for an afternoon on the beach, and the shorter days make our spectacular oceanside sunrises easier to see in the morning. Slow down, relax and spend your “Holidays in a Hammock” with a family getaway here. Discover all the ways we’re celebrating this special season:
Fa-La-La-La-Flagler Photo Contest

Starry Nights in Flagler Beach
As the sun sets and night settles in, enjoy a scenic drive with your family along Florida State Road A1A to see Flagler’s businesses and residences illuminated with holiday lights. Roll the windows down, smell the sea air and take in a festive landscape unlike anywhere else on the Florida coast; make sure to pick up a complimentary pair of 3-D glasses from select Flagler businesses to enhance the experience. If you can’t make it this year but still want to get in on the holiday cheer, follow us on Facebook for a tour of Flagler’s best holiday decorations later this season. Starry Nights in Flagler Beach kicks off on December 4th.
