We like to go to Pigeon Forge. Weather is usually not to bad.

Other suggestions: Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head Island, Charleston, Savannah.

If your plans take you on I-95 south, plan on alot of traffic from the 26th on as snowbirds are flocking that way.

I would second the recommendation of Charleston. James Island County Park is very nice and they have the best Holiday Festival of Lights drive we have ever experienced and we have seen more than a few. However staying at James County Park Campground will be hard to reserve at this late date. I would recommend Oak Plantation Campground where we spent Christmas a couple of years ago and had a great time. Don't tarry as they fill up as well. You can still see the Holiday Festival of Lights drive with out staying at James Island but it will require a little patience for the drive as it is extremely popular.

Christmas, Florida [emoticon]

Unless you have an absolute need to go to the most southern part of Florida with all the humidity and mosquitoes.

The best kept secret of the north central part of Florida is just knock down beautiful. Numerous crystal blue springs, rivers for kayaking or tubing 3 beautiful forests, etc. No matter which way you go it's less than an hour from the gulf or the east coast. google Rainbow Springs, Dunnellon, Crystal river, and include a 20/30 mile radius or so.

AND there are a plethora of real nice CG's all around that are not sardine crammed with snowbirds. I Snowbirded in this area for a couple of years and never once made reservations ahead of time during peak season.

Shhh, don't tell everyone about this place.[emoticon]


This is a great area! The springs are incredible.

Think I would just move from COE and state parks across the Gulf Coast.
14 days here, then move...
Be in south Texas during coldest part of the winter.

About 5 years ago we went to Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina over Christmas.Short walk to the beach. Great nature programs.You are just south of Murrel's Inlet where they have some great restaurants.

Lot of places in south Georgia & Alabama. Most any where south of Savannah, Macon or Montgomery would be fine most years.
