Hello! This is our first time doing this: Christmas Decor In Our Hometowns! We have friends showing us their hometowns all over California, and the New York area. And I’m featuring Florida, specifically, The Beaches of Jacksonville.
Where Are “The Beaches Of Jacksonville”
“Jacksonville is a city located on the Atlantic coast of northeast Florida, the most populous city proper in the state and is the largest city by area in the contiguous United States.”
So, it’s really spread out. Our part of town feels more laid back.
We live at “The Beaches” where you see the arrow.
Embracing The Beach Life
We still have Christmas trees to decorate in our homes and often you will see live palm trees and even lifeguard stands decked out.
So it is not exactly your traditional Christmas decor.
Deck The Chairs
This free event “Jacksonville Beach Deck The Chairs promotes the arts and fosters community pride through a public art display featuring lighted iconic lifeguard chairs.”
I went by during the day but plan to go at night when our family is here. There are about 30 chairs decorated by different local organizations.
Downtown Atlantic Beach
All the palm trees lining the main streets of our little downtown are decorated with an array of bright lights. We are driving our golf cart. Can you see that I put a wreath on the front?
Christmas Decorations In Our Neighborhood
Wishing you peace this holiday season right in your own hometown.
