While many parts of the country head inside during the cold winter months, residents of Weeki Wachee, Florida are blessed with warm weather year round. If you’re lucky enough to be spending the holiday season on the Adventure Coast, here are five not to miss activities:
Chinsegut Hill Retreat- December 5th, 12th, 18th
Come see how the Chinsegut Hill Retreat glows with vintage Christmas charm. Watch a demonstration and learn how Christmas candy was made long ago. Santa Claus is also making appearance. Chinsegut Hill has welcomed many great dignitaries like Thomas Edison, Helen Keller and William Jennings Bryan. But none can compare to the excitement about Old St. Nick.
Candy Cane Acres- Every Fri/Sat of December
Gather your family and friends to enjoy the holiday light display and Christmas Village at Hernando County Fairgrounds. Visit Mrs. Claus’ kitchen and decorate your own cookie, see the Parade of Trees, stop by Santa’s workshop and make a craft to take home, and cuddle up for an old Florida-style sleigh ride.
Breakfast with Santa- December 13th
This is the perfect event for residents of GlenLakes to bring the family from out of town to. The grandchildren can meet the man himself, Santa Claus! This holiday filled breakfast will include an omelet station, French toast, whipped buttermilk biscuits, and many more delicious items.

Food donations are being collected at the GlenLakes Sales Office and will be distributed to local churches. Items needed include boxed/canned meals, soups, jelly, peanut butter, and baby food. After all, it is the season of giving!
