Let the Magic Begin!

Let Jolly Jubilee commence! This is the most magical time of the year and as you wander through Destin Commons, you’ll find all of our magical holiday decorations-including 2 Christmas trees! Also, you will find 10 topiary reindeer scattered about the center. Did you know that these special friends were names by our guests? It is up to you to find Sandy, Jingle, Beacon, Peace, Hope, Buck, Emmy, Common, and Lolli. Then, strike a pose, take a picture, and post it up in your home or on social media (with the hashtag #destincommons).

As you make your way around, see more sights and sounds of Christmas. Live performances will be taking place starting November 29th! Enjoy jazz, quartets, theatre, choral, saxophone, and orchestra performances until December 22nd. It truly makes our center come alive in full holiday charm!

Oh, Christmas Tree!

Make your way to Center Plaza to find our 2.5 ton, 50 foot Christmas tree. Get your camera ready again as you admire the red benches, potted poinsettias, bows, garland, and over 800 beautiful ornaments. Then, snap a photo of your family and friends to make the perfect background on your mobile phone, this year’s Christmas card to be sent, or simply a wonderful holiday memory.

Wish Lists for Santa

Don’t forget to bring the kids to tell Santa what is on their list! Bass Pro Shops will be hosting him in his Wonderland throughout the holiday season, so stop by and take a picture with Santa, then enjoy crafts, games, and other holiday-themed activities!

Did the kids forget something when they visited Santa or simply want to write Old Saint Nick a note? They can send a letter to Santa at our North Pole Express mailbox located at the Guest Services booth! There you will find paper and envelopes that are perfect for that last-minute request. Just pop in the mailbox and Destin Commons will make sure to get it to Old Saint Nick himself! Who knows, there might even be a letter back to your little one!
