We will be flying into Miami on Dec 23rd. We usually take a cruise but this year are thinking of heading up the west coast, Naples, Sanibel. (2 adults ,1 teen) 9 days. Firstly, I wondered what the weather normally is like at Christmas ? We are really looking for some sun and a beach type holiday - with some shopping added in.. We've been in Sanibel/Captiva once at Christmas , which we loved but I seem to remember the weather was quite chilly and we couldn't really swim or relax in the sun. Maybe a once off?
My second question is , We hope to move around but would like to spend 24th, 25th & 26th in a resort or hotel that would have a festive feel. It can feel a bit strange to be in a generic chain type hotel for Christmas day. Any advice appreciated.
