Yep. I am from Florida, and my immediate family all live there, so I actually go back home a few times a year. BUT, for Christmas for the past 4 years my family (myself, DH, DS, DD and last year and this her BF) go to St. George Island with my BFF and her DH, and 2 DD's and one boyfriend. This year my parents will join us for part of the week. We rent a big house, which is usually reasonably priced, and split it halvsies with BFF, we have a kitty for food purchases, and stay for a week. We eat in- fresh shrimp for dinner nightly, play cards, board games, do puzzles, and karaoke to the Wii (usually Glee and Disney). We take bikes, some of us are walkers instead, do lots of reading and knitting. Chatting over making dinner, watching old Christmas movies. The "kids" (junior in high school through 26 year old boyfriend) usually go to play bingo one night. In the early years we would go see the tree lighting downtown Appalachicola, but the rental is either Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday, so last year and this we will actually go Christmas to New Year's. One of the best weeks of my year!!!
Next year will be a problem. My DS will be a senior in high school and his break is not as long as the college kids. And Christmas is on a Monday, and BFF and their family have a big family gathering on Christmas Eve. So next year, may be just my family and if so we will do St. Augustine as we had that as our family tradition before we moved away from Florida. Stunning there!
