Jolly Jubilee, Twenty Eighteen

There is a slight nip in the air, which really helps aid in getting into the Christmas spirit. And we are in full swing around here to welcome you to our Jolly Jubilee.

Destin Commons is known for our festive seasonal decorations and we pull out all the stops for Christmas. Be sure to wander throughout the lifestyle center and enjoy all of our magical holiday decorations. We have 10 topiary reindeer scattered about the center each with a special name given to it by our guests. There is Sandy, Jingle, Beacon, Peace, Hope, Buck, Emmy, Common and Lolli- it is up to you to find them all! Make sure you carve out a couple of minutes to have your family picture made in front of one of our two Christmas trees on property. The Main Street tree is 50-foot, weighs in at over 2.5 tons, and is complete with bows and garland and over 800 ornaments. Even Santa is impressed with all of our decorating magic!

Shop ‘til you drop is the motto of the season. Our stores really get into the spirit of the season with their window displays. Can you pick a favorite? We love this coastal Christmas tree at Southern Living.

This time of the year is extra busy and you might be wondering how will you ever get everything done. Our stores have adjusted their hours to give you a little more time in finding that perfect gift for everyone on your list.

It does not get any better than holiday decorations around every corner, the beautiful sounds of your favorite Christmas songs, and a delicious cup of hot cocoa. It truly is the most wonderful time of year- so ring in the holidays here at Destin Commons during our Jolly Jubilee!
